Keep the Faith in Sweepstakes from Publishers Clearing House

Among the hundreds of Publishers Clearing House Sweepstakes winners that our Prize Patrol has surprised over the years, there have been many clergy – or “men and women of the cloth.” They obviously felt no hesitation in participating in our contests; in fact they displayed the positive thinking that seems to come with their vocation.

One particularly memorable winner was Father Mike Berner, a Roman Catholic priest from Iowa. His “Million Dollar winning moment” was broadcast in a live national TV commercial on the NBC Nightly News and was included in Joan Lunden’s “Behind Closed Doors” program. Father Mike’s wonderful sense of humor was so obvious that he wound up as a guest on David Letterman’s and Rosie O’Donnell’s shows.

Many other denominations’ clergy are represented in our “winning moments” archives: Episcopalian, Presbyterian, Methodist, Congregationalist, Lutheran, Assembly of God, and others.

Of course, the vast majority of people who win are not ordained ministers, and I suppose that many others who win are not particularly religious. But from what I can see they ALL have a belief that they can win. And that faith is what I want you to have – because you too can enter to win huge cash prizes in the Publishers Clearing House Sweepstakes.

You can enter the Publishers Clearing House Sweepstakes simply by clicking here on this link to pch.com.

Have faith that you can win. Indeed, you have nothing to lose! Enter today – and enter every day!

Amen? Yes, amen!

Dave: when you clicked on Mike Berner—-> it went to the article of a Baptist Minister Daniel Moore of Tenn. he was a winner of $50,000.00…(July 2001) Mike Berner was a August 1998 $1,000,000.00..The article of this Roman Catholic priest did not come up…but I did go to the winner’s circle to find this priest that had won..Thanks! Nothing like doing research after a long day at a boring job! *smile*

Hi Gail,
PCH Wonderland was temporarily taken down on 4/30 so we could make some necessary updates. We hope to have it live again shortly.
The current Ford Escape Hybrid contest is being supported by Giveaway No. 1523, which is running until 12/31/10 or earlier at our option, so you can still keep entering and keep getting more chances to win it.

    Hi Ann,

    We have had prize winners in every state. At Publishers Clearing House our winner selection process is completely random and unbiased and is conducted by independent auditors and Giveaway Supervisors. We have no way of determining who our winners may be or where they may come from. Our most recent winners can be found on the top of http://www.pch.com on the scrolling bar and under the “Winners Circle” link. You may also view some of our winning moments at: http://www.pchtv.com.

    Our mailings are opportunities for a chance to win, and provide clear information that the recipient has not yet won any prize, must enter by the deadline, and must be chosen to win. In order to win an entry must be selected by random drawing or match the winning number selected. Please remember that while we receive entries from all across the land only one individual can actually win each giveaway. All PCH prizes of $500 or greater are awarded by either certified mail, or in person by our famous Prize Patrol. These awards are done as soon as all winning entries and prizes are matched.

    Keep on trying! And remember, at Publishers Clearing House no purchase is ever necessary to enter or win!

    Regards,
    Jodi @ PCH

    PCH Customer Service said...

    Hi Jaime,

    Please be assured, if you are one of our lucky winners you will definitely be notified. Our Prize Patrol makes every effort to locate our winners. We haven’t had a situation in over 30 years of awarding prizes where we could not locate our winners. The Prize Patrol would work directly with the Postal Service to locate the winner, if necessary. We have had winners who live in big cities, small towns, trailer parks, high rise apartments and even the Alaskan tundra and the Prize Patrol has always located the winner.

    If you are picked as a winner of a prize of $10,000 or more, you will be notified in person by the Prize Patrol. Prizes of under $10,000 are notified by certified mail or by courier. These awards are done as soon as all winning entries and prizes are matched. Our most recent winners can be found on the top of our web site on the scrolling bar and under the “Winners Circle” link. You may also view some of our winning moments at: http://www.pchtv.com.

    PCH Customer Service said...

    Hi Jaime,

    All draws are awarded on the date specified in the Sweepstakes Facts that comes with each entry as per our official rules. In the event of an “Advanced Look”, a SuperPrize number is drawn and, if the winning entry has been returned, the prize is awarded. If the winning number was not returned, the prize rolls over to the next draw date. If the prize is not awarded on any of the “Advanced Look” draw dates, the prize will be awarded on the end date specified in the Sweepstakes Facts.

    Regards,
    Jodi @ PCH

Susan Howard said...

Dear Publishers Clearing House, it has been a lot of fun playing your games. I have more important problems I am trying to get through each day, my mom and my brother are in Utah right now,probably be there for some time. My brother had a heart pump put in cause he needs a new heart. We are all praying for my brother that things get better for him. I call my mom and brother up to see how they are doing.He has to stay there at the hospital until he can learn how to take care of the heart pump they put inside my brother. He is on the waiting list for a hew heart,so we wait.It’s been hard on us. The doctors has to keep an eye on him to make sure things go ok. My mom is helping my brother out,her son. My mom is 75 years old and she tries to help out as much she can . God bless her sole. My mom is special to all of us. Sincerly Susan Howard

[REPLY TO THIS POST]
Karen Allen said...

Hi Susan, I hope that your brother (you didn’t say how old?)is still with us waiting. I think we are all waiting in some fashion for something. I also truly sympathize with your plight as my husband was on the heart transplant list in December 2003-Feb. 2004. He had an LVAD implanted that did the pumping for his heart as well, but there were numerous complications. Too numerous to mention. I am praying for your family that the Lord will give each of you strength enough to see you through. My heart and best wishes go out to you and yours.

Susan Howard said...

Thank you Karen Allen, I appreciate all the prays for my family and my brother, My brother is in his 40′sI pray for him to get through this.My brother thinks that he might have to end up living there so he can be closer to the doctors he is seeing.My mother is 75 and she is taking care of him. Every one have a Happy New Years.

Good morning to Publishers Clearing House. It’s been a long time, but I have been entering since God knows when. If I won I would be helping out my family members,and the homeless people so they could have food and clothing to keep them warm. my first priority would be my brother who is in the hospital in Utaha with our mom. She is taking care of him. He needs a new heart and that cost a lot of money. Sincerly Susan Howard

The deadline came in December an havent heard nothig else about it the winner was to be chosen in January 2011. I I see is the 1 million sweepstakes ongoing now.

    Hi Irving,

    There was no winner for the 5,000 a week for life as of yet. Right now we are promoting the $1 Million a Year for Life sweeps. The 5,000 a week for life will return again later. Best of luck to you!

Winning anything in the PCH
sweepstakes is next to impossible. Since 1965 I have been submitting an average of
8 entries a week, and with odds
of over one trillion to one,
entering is simply a gimmick to get the entrants to purchase.

teresa lessane said...

This what my dad give me. lesson and encouragement he told me to live by. Alway when I get sad I think of what he said believe all things are possible
Believe in yourself and all that you are, know that there is something inside you that is greater then any obstacle. Believe that you will succeed and you will . The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams. If people believe in themselves it’s amazing what they can accomplish your belief determines your action and your action determines your results, but first you have to believe you can do it if you believe you can! Success means having the courage the determination, and the will to become the person you believe you were mean’t to be believe deep down in your heart that you’re destined to do great things. You can have anything you want if you will give up the belief that you can’t have it. Believe and act as if it were impossible to fail. I can’t believe that god put us on this earth to be ordinary.

crystal keepin the faith! said...

Hey ALL! {waving}

slap some big fat hallelujah’s with those Amen’s Dave! lol

keeping the faith is right!

I was clicking my email so I could come to the post that came into my email today 4/11/14. the title starts just as this one here, but never show’s the one I got for today. what I’ll do is respond here to what I got in my email today. when I click comment it seems to reflect the email post below is not out there. yeah, right. heehee here it is below but shorten a lot so I can comment.

pch post 4/11/14 By Jane M – Creative Dept.: Keep The Faith — Another Big Prize Event is Around The Corner!
….

Even though others might think we’re crazy to dream of things beyond our grasp, there is surely a lesson to be learned about the power of perseverance and faith. And it’s comforting to know that maybe our children or grandchildren will be inspired by our will to succeed.
As you all know, staying strong and keeping the faith can be really hard! And I know that when the going gets tough we could all use a little inspiration, something to lift our spirits. I would love to share a little poem I wrote that might just help with that. Even though I wrote it some time ago, I still wouldn’t change a word!
Positive Thinking Pays Off!


It Could Be Your Turn To Win Soon! …
Bet you’re all getting excited about our upcoming SuperPrize Event! As you all know, the Prize Patrol is ready to give away $7,000.00 A Week For Life in this Special Early Look event this April 30th. The countdown is ON! There’s only 8 days left to enter! (link to pch.com)

This is really the time to stay focused! As Prize Patrol Elite member Danielle Lam (link here) says, the only way to win it is to be IN IT! DON’T GIVE UP! Keep the faith and keep entering the PCH Sweepstakes every day.

Enter today, enter tomorrow, just enter as much as you can (link to pch.com)! Good luck to all of you!

Jane M.

Creative Dept.

P.S. Do any of you have special sayings that help you remember to keep the faith? Please share them in the comments section below!

ok Jane my encouraging words I keep in heart are: “It’s MORE about “WE” than it is about me.”

this message helps me hold tight on those days when I just think I’m head tripping, and need to wake up, but right when I’m thinking this, I’m interrupted with the words that so many other’s are counting on me, and most haven’t even meet me yet. that I don’t have the right to forget about other’s, because it seems to far fetch to consider what I could do to serve someone other than myself. so it helps to remember that I’m not just dreaming really-really BIG for me, but I’m dreaming large for so many others who could really use my dreams coming true too!

so there it is in a nutshell, that when I remember what I’m dreaming isn’t just about me, I get my butt up BECAUSE it’s NOT just about me, it’s about “WE.” {smiling} what can I say Jane, it’s how I flow girl. lol

ok ALL! many thanks to you Jane, to pch founders, pch elite, pch fam and the entire house of pch. May all your blessings remain throughout the generations of your name.

love ya! Mawh!!!

oh yeah, hey Jane! I got that poem you sent us. very nice and thank you.
