PCH Sweepstakes Winner to be Featured on TLC’s “The Lottery Changed My Life”

Imagine for a moment that you’re just sitting at home, thinking about your kids’ college tuition, the electric bill, the water bill, the mortgage, the lease on your car and the various other bills you’re expecting. All of a sudden, the doorbell rings… you take the time out of your busy thoughts to answer it, and standing before you is the famous PCH Prize Patrol holding champagne, roses, balloons and the famous giant check! Then you continue to imagine Dave’s familiar face as he announces that you’re the newest sweepstakes winner!

Only a handful of people ever get to experience the thrill of winning the lottery or a big sweepstakes, so TLC has created a show that features winners across the country, showing their lifestyles and what they’re doing with their winnings. The PCH Sweepstakes has changed many lives in its history, so it is only appropriate that TLC’s “The Lottery Changed My Life” is featuring PCH Sweepstakes winner, Natalie Bostelman!

What would you do if you won the PCH Sweepstakes? I think the most common thing someone would do is buy a new car, or pay off their mortgage. I personally would probably go to the animal shelter and walk away with a bunch of rescued dogs. Too many times have I been to an animal shelter and walked away on the verge of tears.

Make sure to tune in this Sunday, August 29 at 10 p.m. to find out what other big lotto and sweepstakes winners have done with their winnings including our very own Natalie Bostelman. And remember to keep entering the PCH sweepstakes. Who knows, you may be featured on “The Lottery Changed My Life” someday as well!

Hello everyone :) What would I do If I had won first I would problary be in shock due to the odds of winning are really high and it would be a truly miracle if I was to win. And if I had won I would consider it as a tremdous blessing in my life and as a blessing I would do the things I always dream of doing. first I would give praises to god. and help the children in this world that dont even have a piece of bread to which really breaks my heart so much that it bring tears to my eyes. And of course I too would adopt a dog also because I’ll be able to provide for the pet not only my great love and make sure that my pet wouldn’t have a need for anything.I would adopt the pet that has been threw the worst in life. and be able to buy a home always dream of living in a house..however these are my dreams. And if I dont win I truly dont give up my hope that one day my dreams may come true.I have been with PCH since I have been 17yrs old hoping for that one miracle in my life even through unfortunely PCH dont have my records from my past but that’s ok Because I’m still here playing because I believe PCh does gives hope and does make dreams come true to all the winners that have won and hopefully one day my day may come .Until god bless everyone. And whoever wins on August 31, 2010 will be one heap of a lucky winner ! I would like to wish everyone good luck. Including myself :) everyone truly have a bless day! Smile :)

First off, GOOD LUCK to EVERYONE!! Winning PCH’s sweepstakes would change anyone’s life! Unless you are ALREADY rich!! :)

But alas, a lot of us are not.

I’ve just turned 20 years old, and already have the responsibilities of someone twice my age. I keep my head up, ALWAYS! :) Plus I have family to make sure every day is taken one step at a time. I love my family so much! We laugh, fight, fuss,have each others back When it’s all done, we are right together at the end of the day smiling. :)

I love you all! Keep your heads up! Everyone is a winner!

Also, I would give to some Cancer+Diabetes Charities. I know what it is like to have love’d ones ill.. I just want everyone to be happy. :)

Thank you for reading this if you did! :)

I’m kind of rushing as I write this, I have to take my brother to the park! :) HUGS HUGS HUGS

Hello everyone @ PCH! Well if I had a chance 2 win, I would first pay off my hospital bills, give a donation 2 the youth department at my church, start a program for the youth in my community that provides help and a place of shelter.Start a program to assist youth and young adults who had a stroke, because I had a stroke @ 19 and GOD helped me thru it and im 25, so I want to be a blessing to someone else. Buy a home and help family, friends and love ones thats in need. So each I PRAY and sit waitin quiet on the day For a blessing 2 come my way! Thank u!

i just have to comment too because a desire for me would be also to pay medical bills, get a small place of my own so i can move out of my sister’s, find the retreat where i can heal fibromyalgia, go on as if i never had disease or debt and help others create their dreams. i want to open a kittie kingdom for all the feral cats that seem to find me, at least 40 here and in my last place we counted 60 in the ‘hood. they are needing my help and i want to so. i would help the children , mainly those who are alone and need to be reminded that they are little lights of love, possibly through expression in creative ways. i want to help the homeless and depressed as i know that empty lost feeling , from grief. i believe if we can all help each other and spread the wealth and goodness that we all are , everyone’s life will be rewarded. thank you for blessing so many, what a magnificent gift to change live’s for the better. may you continue in perfect health and joy! may everyone find peace and love in their hearts and radiate, it is easier then you think, think only good, if everyone did we would get along beautifully, i know!

I am proud of everyone that has mentioned God. With out Him in our lives, we would be worse than poor. Who ever wins, please do not forget to give God his ten percent freely with your right hand. (It’s mentioned somewhere in the Bible: give with the left hand and the devil knows how much: give with the right hand and God knows how much.) One of the best ways to give God His ten percent is through your church. I am going to do the same if I am chosen by PCH, but I will also give some money to charities of my choice and to an orphanage. If I win, maybe I will adopt one or two children and give them a chance at a good life.

Good afternoon PCH I can only imagine and HOPE but I would move back too Ohio since I have no family here; help my two sons and brother who have had a hard time too; help First Lutheran Church since they help others in need that is what I would do GOOD DEEDS not only for humanity but also animals that have been throwing away because people just don’t want them anymore!

Nancy Sexton said...

Only God Himself knows what I would have to do with such a great windfall!! First and foremost, He’d CERTAINLY get His weekly 10 percent off the TOP!!! (Malachi 3:10) Then, He would lead me to those priorities in life that NEED to be taken care of right away!! And there are many a GREAT NEED right here at home!!
God would see to it that we’d put it to GOOD use!! Amen!!

And We’d have PCH to thank for it!!!

Yes, the show was great and encouraging. I almost missed it but some days ago I set a reminder on my bedroom tv. I always turn it on before I lay down and there it pop up. I remember watching the pchtv of Natalie winning day; I cried too.
So, we all hope and pray daily for a financial blessing and I am glad God made a way for PCH to share their money with us.
Keep on giving PCH

I don’t think anyone from PCH sees the posts here, but, for the record, if I finally won from any of the PCH contests, I’d be able to stop stressing out so much. I have been entering with PCH since 32 years now and none of my entries have ever won anything. I’m beginning to think they cherry pick the winners.

    Hi Lee,

    All the posts on this blog are read by PCH staff.

    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.

    While we have promoted our famous sweepstakes for over 40 years as a way to draw attention to our unbeatable magazine deals and value-based merchandise offerings no purchase is ever necessary to enter or win. You may be interested to know that the majority of our major prize winners have not ordered with their winning entry! Of course, if you do choose to order, our guarantee policy allows you to return any product or cancel a magazine subscription if you are not happy with your order.

    All promotional mailings from Publishers Clearing House carry a prominent “Sweepstakes Facts” insert that among other information states the prize value and odds of winning. The insert reminds all recipients that:

    You Have Not Yet Won. All Entries Have The Same Chance of Winning. The winner has not been identified. We don’t know who the winner is. If you enter our Sweepstakes, your entry will have the same chance to win as every other entry.

    Enter For Free. You don’t have to buy anything to enter. Just mail the entry form included in this mailing or follow the instructions in the Official Rules.

    Enter As Often As You Like. You don’t have to wait for us to mail you an entry form. You may submit additional entries simply by writing to us at Publishers Clearing House, 101 Winners Circle, Port Washington, NY 11050. Each time you write to us you will be entered once in each ongoing Sweepstakes. Each entry request must be mailed separately.

    Buying Won’t Help You Win. Your chances of winning without a purchase are the same as the chances of someone who buys something. It would not be lawful to give any advantage to buyers in a Sweepstakes.

    Regards,
    Chris @ PCH
