London: `Twilight` hunk Taylor Lautner has donated the money he won from a trailer company lawsuit to charity.

The 18-year-old actor filed suit against MCMahon`s RV trailer hire firm in June after the owners caused him "distress" by allegedly failing to deliver a vehicle to the set of his new film `Abduction` on time, reported Contactmusic.

Lautner sued for breach of contract and fraud and reached a settlement on Friday. The teen star has donated the USD 40,000 to a children`s charity.

"MCMahon`s RV has agreed to settle its dispute with Taylor Lautner. MCMahon`s RV will pay USD 40,000 to Lautner, which Lautner will donate to The Lollipop Theater Network, a children`s charity with which he has a long-standing relationship," said his lawyer.
