Mega Millions Jackpot Winner Called Wife Out of Bed

Last week’s Mega Millions jackpot winner, Jim McCullar, called his wife out of bed when he realized he’d won. He was pale and shaking, but OK, when he hollered for her to get out of bed.

Here at Publishers Clearing House, our PCH Prize Patrol has surprised sweepstakes winners under all sorts of conditions. Some, like Jeff Jones from Attleboro Massachusetts, have been called out of bed by the ringing doorbell, while others have opened the door in bathrobes or pajama pants. Each and every time, though, the Big Check was a very welcome wake-up call!

Publishers Clearing House has awarded over $225 Million in sweepstakes prizes and we’re not stopping there! In fact, this month we’re offering a huge $1 Million A Year For Life SuperPrize! That’s what I call “mega!”

Why did we go all out this time? We wanted to kick off the New Year with a giant jackpot prize amount to encourage people to enter the Publishers Clearing House Sweepstakes.

Something else that should encourage folks to enter the PCH $1 Million A Year For Life is that it’s absolutely FREE! Mega Millions jackpot winner Jim McCullar bought his lottery ticket at a supermarket, but there’s no purchase or fee necessary to enter or win the PCH SuperPrize. It’s like a “free lottery“.

Recent news stories about the Mega Millions jackpot prize have reported that a second winning ticket, sold somewhere in Idaho, has not yet been claimed. If that winner doesn’t come forward to claim the winning number within the required time limit, he or she won’t be declared a winner and will forfeit the prize money. At PCH, if an eligible matching winning number is not timely returned for our $1 Million A Year For Life SuperPrize, we will hold a second chance drawing to randomly pick an alternate winner of $1 Million. Either way, a new Publishers Clearing House millionaire winner will be announced on TV and online at PCHTV.com on February 28th.

So, what are you waiting for? Enter the PCH $1 Million A Year For Life Sweepstakes and on February 28th you could win a “mega millions jackpot” of your own!

Good luck!

Hi all!

Happy (bday?) Martin Luther King, Jr.!!

Did u know..there’s at least 3 diff pchers here from Mass.(;

I’m also in disbelief of the very talented ppl that r here that have migrated towards Publishers Clearing House..
well I believe it…& I see it!!
it’s just hard 2 believe that these wonderful & kind ppl r also struggling just as much-or who knows..poss more than I, in these terribly stressful & tight financial times!
I truly wish that we all already were set & living more comfortable lives!
Even a home-alone- may assist w my dreary med conditions! I need relief-like yesterday!
May I ask- who else has non-restorative sleep & or/sleepless nights?!:(
sorry?!

& I also wish that we all had an actual place 2 call home!.. I know I don’t have 1 of those places..a nest.. a sanctuary:( as of yet!
..I’ll keep dreaming..

Thank u for the free entries PCH! Can’t even really afford an xtra $ for state lotto! not that I’d even play theirs..PCHs is #1! LOL

May I ask u Deborah.. I recently won a $10 gift certificate to Amazon.com from ya! @ the 12 days of holiday sweeps/scratch & win..CONGRATS 2 ME! LOL
am I less likely now to win next mo:(?!

Any other winners of lotto or search & win here?

Good luck 2 all! & 2 myself of course

I am praying that I somehow become a million $ winner in Feb!

I WANT IT.. I NEED IT.. BADLY(:

    Hi Lisa, Congratulations on winning the $10 Amazon Gift Certificate from PCH. It will not affect your chance of winning another prize. Each entry is a new chance to win and each drawing is an independent draw. We don’t eliminate previous winners.

    Hi Maureen,

    No, all blog posts do not get posted. We sometimes choose to answer a post in a private email rather than publicly over the blog, like we did in the situation you described. Generally we do this if the post, or our response, is dealing with information of a more personal nature.

      Thanks Rebecca,

      For your clarification, I will try to remember that in the future..as I did not think it as personal, but others may have.

      Maureen

      P.S.

      Vickie, KEEP UP your work!!!
      Persistance may pay off for you, as I said you could do a LOT of GOOD WORK on the computer!!

      but don’t think the HAMP program was the silver bullet fo all those in neeed..

      We applied through our bank after losing my income to the recession.( lack of work)( not the breadwinner) but desperately needed for our mortgage payment..
      We went through &*%^ for a year with them only to have our payment reduced $30.00 but in the process ruining our credit since the trial payments did not cover the full morgage…
      spent another whole year trying to straighen that out..but now are trying to refinance our mortgage for another 30 years at the age of 62 so we will not lose it.. STILL have no word but as you we are out of funds also so are entering our retirement years with the threat of losing our home after working to live here for the past 22 years.

      Your words might influence some in government to see how troubling the times are now in this country for those that have worked for so long but are less likly to be able to find substancial work again maily due to age etc. & may lead to some changes..

      I love the idea of your foundation… I have similar ideas, only have a blind & autistic grandson, want to help with that “cause “moreso, since they also rely on SSI & there may be NONE left ..

Vickie Plasterer said...

Hi Ms. Holland and all PCH Bloggers,

Ms. Holland, this is a very nice new picture you have posted. Red is a good color for you.

Like every one, I am anxious to see WHO the BIG WINNER will BE on February 28th, 2011.

Needless to say, I am wishing for it to be our family, then as I read others comments I am wishing it could be all of us.

I have thought about what we would do as our first improvement to our lives; if we should win. So many things come to mind that I am not certain where we would begin.

I do know that I would like to start a Foundation.

I have thought seriously about a Home Improvement Foundation.

I do not beleive anyone has ever had a Home Improvemet Foundation. There are programs such as, “the Habitat for Humanity” which provide homes for low income families, and there are TV shows, such as
” Home Makeover,” but how many of us can qualify to get on that program?

The idea came to me as I look around our own home, knowing that we cannot afford to make the very Necessary, and in some cases URGENT repairs, to maintain our home; keeping it from becoming even MORE ‘UPSIDE DOWN’ in value.

When Pres. Obama put together his “Making Homes Affordable Act”, following the crash of the Mortgage Industry, he concentrated ONLY on those home owners whose mortgages are backed by Government Loan Guarantees, and left the rest of us with Conventional Mortgages “hanging out to dry”. If a person has their home Guaranteed by FHA, FANNIE MAE or FREDDIE MAC, THEY QUALIFY for Mortgage Loan Modifications, HAMP and can even get refinancing of thier loans; with the lender agreeing to FORGIVE the Negative Equity, reduce their principle balance to the ACTUAL MArket VALUE of the home, using today’s market values and mortgage rates; then the Lender agreees to write off the rest of the principle balance; without this affecting the home buyer’s credit. These are good programs “IF YOU QUALIFY”.

There are many people in our postion, whose loans were approved without having to have a Government Guarantee, however we got caught up in the CRASH of HOME MARKET VALUES, and are now in serious NEGATIVE EQUITY Positions.

Because we have NO available Equity in our Homes, we cannot get Equity Lines of Credit or, even a Second Mortgage, in order to afford the very expensive repairs, such as our urgent need to replace our Bad and Broken Furnaces. Try living in Indiana in the winter time without adequate heat in your home. We also NEED a new roof and our foundation is crumbling. I understand that many of you are struggling through the same sort of things.

Every one of these items cost more than $15,000 to repair and/or replace. I don’t know about you, but after having lost my income 7 YEARS AGO; I was the PRIMARY Income Producer in our household; and after having to undergo 27 surgeries, continued physical therapy, and having to pay an $880.00 Co-PAY for my prescriptions each month; our well is dry.

I sit here cold, worried, and depressed many days, as I watch our home fall apart, knowing that, right now, there is not a way for us to “dig out from under”. I have tried to find a work position where I can work from home; only due to my disability, but thus far, no luck.
I even wrote to Obama, suggesting that there are those of us who are now being paid Social Security Disablity; which I earned from having worked and paying into the program for 37 years, who, even though our bodies may not function well enough to allow us to leave our homes everyday to go to work, we are NOT DEAD. Many of us have a great deal of work experinece which would Qualify us to work for the SOCIAL SECURITY ADMINISTRATION, or some other GOVERNMENT OFFICE; from our homes.
I even offered my own telephone, and my computer as the equipment necessary to perform some positions. The result would be that instead of collecting Social Security at younger ages (I am 57) we could be earning income, and would NOT have to be on the Rolls of Social Security until we would reach the age of retirement, like every other WORKING person in America. I feel this will help to aleve the burdened Social Security System. Of course I had to tell him that the Government needs to STOP tapping into Social Security Funds for programs it was NOT MEANT to support financially.

Anyway, I suggested that perhaps the Social Security Finances would improve, and be there, even when the huge influx of retired Baby Boomers began collecting their rightful due.

I never got a response, not even one of those, pre-signed, ‘canned’ letters that are sent out by the office staff.

Sorry , I got carried away, Can you tell I am bored and need something to do? I am certain our Congressional Leaders know my name by now !(LOL) It is my opinion that there are so many things going wrong right now in our America, and I HAVE THE TIME, so I correspond frequently reqarding these situations. I offer my opinion and I feel should be done to correct them.
I advise everyone that can to write your Congress Men and Women and (politely and professionally) let them know what it is they CAN DO FOR YOU. Which is WHY they were elected “BY and FOR the PEOPLE” in the first place.

Sorry, I let my politics get heavy into this blog. I’ll watch this, but I did want you to know what I would like to do, should our family be Graced with the BIG WIN.

GOOD LUCK TO US ALL !!

    Thanks for sharing your sweepstakes winning dream with us, Vickie! A “home improvement foundation” is an interesting concept. Plenty of people would be able to take advantage of that kind of help. Would love to hear what our other readers think about this idea — also what their sweepstakes winning dreams might be. (On a different subject, red is my favorite color, so I’m glad I wear it well. In fact, as I type this comment, I’m wearing a red jacket over a black argyle sweater at work today.)

I want to win the Publishing Clearing House 1 million a year for life for me and my aunt. She’s 52 years old and I’m 17 years old. I live with her now since my grandmother (her sister) passed after my birthday. It’s been kind of hard on her because two of her sisters died. I just want to win this for her because even though I’m trying to help her, she wants me to keep and save it sometimes.I know she is having problems financially (she works but I know she is behind in some bills). I just pray and have faith that we win this because I want her to be happy.

Maureen, Vickie.. if I only have the energy 2 type out my ideas as well we’d b golden!!!

sry 4 responding & cluttering up the blog, PCH..but thanks SOOO much 4 connecting all of us! & for being here w us of course!!

I LOOOOOOOVE this foundation idea! I’ve had similar ideas! Don’t let n e 1 steal ur idea though!!

Would making a non-prof out of that idea poss work?!- or make any sense?
what’s stopping ya?

I too have inquired multiple x’s w Habitat 4 hum, watched ex home makeover + wished that was me( I’m so happy for those families who do rec assistance! I don’t liike to think of myself as a mushy person..but I do shed tears:*))
& I’ve sent an app 2 The Ellen Show:) shh! & searched in many other places for affordable
housing/a roof!
(if I only wasn’t paying 99% of my benefit towards housing..I’d maybe have $ for shoes, or clothes..or even enough $ for food- or my med co-pays!

Who enjoys not getting proper nutri?!! NOT ME!

I have yet 2 find something 4 home improvements..etc!
need an actual home 1st:)
doesn’t mean that my apt isn’t falling apart! there’s some re-occuring mold issues as well! prob no so good 4 my bird! The LL cleaned/bleached the walls etc..but this place neeeeeds 2 b gutted out!

I don’t even have a dishwasher – or a bathroom vent! o how those things would help me! (more reasons 4 my love of what PCH does) I truly even believe that those things would/could give me a tiny bit of relief as far as pain /stiffness & vertigo goes!

I THINK THAT YOUR IDEA/s IS FANTASTIC! Hmm how long would it take 2 get it up & running?!
I may just try & check if we can also find any gov’t grants(would PCH invest LOL JK!?)

I hate to be the 1 to tell ya.. but I am also SADLY (MY values down the drain:() on ssi& ssd!
I’m only in my early 20′s!
I believe that I actually have a minor TBI from when I was a toddler & fell out of a 1st story window onto pavement!:(
today I am still suffering from fibro, chronic fat & terrible sleep & narcolepsy symtoms..& more! LOL
I also am basically 90% homebound I have searched up & down for a suitable job from home.
Telemarketing..etc only worked 4 so long! & w that I’ve been having difficulties w the costs of comp progs ..4 an ex a microphone to text..or w/e u call it would help immensely, even w my daily search & win searches!!

MORE REASONS 4 MY PCH DREAMS..
- $ for something such as Peapod delievery! I do love getting outside though!! LOL

I have contacted them directly..a while back, they still did not have a prog/way for elderly or even the disabled to pay w their food benefit or even really a discount if they/we want 2 have this service(yes, sadly I’m on that as well THANKFULLY..but sadly!)

I am WAY more than sorry & angry 2 hear that u kind & wonderful peeps r also suffering:( guess we r together?
I was never really depressed & hate 2 admit it but I’m depressed, cold & sad as well!

I’m sad 2 hear that some of u are also @ risk of losing your lifelong(& or fam) homes..etc
this is TERRIBLE!! THIS NEEDS 2 STOP, TODAY!

Aside from me..eventually/possibly? finding a dream job( myb w PCH?I bet every1 wants 2 work 4 u guys!) I know quite a few very talented ppl that would love 2 have & actually hold down a job!!

I have always thought & may have also mentioned this 2 Pres. Obama(in 1 of my ltrs)LOL the need 4 a sufficient amt of work out of/@ home jobs!

Y just y r we sending jobs overseas when we have people ALIVE HERE..YES ALIVE- “NOT DEAD” LOL
(save $ on fuel 2?) needing something 2 do?

anyways..I have way 2 much 2 say & not enough energy!
Had 2 take a few breaks! thats ok though! LOL

Pls keep me/us updated w this home imp situation! I’d b happy 2 help, just let me know!

all of us bloggers need & want that mil $ a yr 4 life Publishers Clearing House, so may I ask..what’s in the works for more spectacular gwys?:D is this a q 4 Danielle?

Hi Maureen and All my friends at PCH BLOG,

Maureen, you mentioned a young person with Autisim. Autisim has a devastating effect on Hearing and Speech capabilities for persons with this disability.

This brings to mind an orgaization that would be forever GRATEFUL, should one of us win the PCH ONE MILLION A YEAR FOR LIFE SWEEPSTAKES on FEBRUARY 28, 2011.

I know all about this organization, because I was a very active member when I was able to work. I still do occasional Volunteer work for them, such as mailers and phone calls.

The Name of this WONDERFUL organization is SERTOMA. SERvice TO MAnkind Assoc.

Sertoma’s primary focus is on assisting the more than 50 million people with hearing and speech health issues and educating the public on the issues surrounding hearing and speech health. In order to achieve these goals SERTOMA has undertaken a multi-faceted approach by launching programs that address both the treatment and prevention aspects of hearing and speech health.

Please see the Mission Activities section of their site for details on their programs at, http://www.SERTOMA.org.
SERTOMA also sponsors community projects to promote FREEDOM and DEMOCRACY; and to assist youth, providing Colleage Scholarships to those whose career choice will be in Hearing and Speech professions, and to benefit a variety of other LOCAL COMMUNITY NEEDS, as identified by the individual clubs.

This is an EXCELLENT Organization to JOIN and to SUPPORT financially should you win the PCH MILLION a YEAR for LIFE on February 28th, 2011.

If yuo want to, you can read all about this NON-Profit Club at SERTOMA.org. If you have the time, it is a FUN and Personally Satisfying organization to belong to, kbowing that what you do is helping so many that need our help.

Just a Thought. I would like to see names of other NON-PROFIT (501 and 503) orhganiations that members of our PCH BLOG beleive would benefit from a helping hand should one of us WIN BIG on February 28th 2011.

Thanks,

Hi Vickie,
Thanks for the info… I will look into it. I am currently trying to stay involved with the MAGIC FOUNDATION.. since Nicky was born with septo-optic-nerve hypoplasia..
I got involved with them only for need of info qwhen he was born.. He is now 9 years old.. but my intentions will be to assist in some way with his “cause” alos get him inot the best possible residential school.. As he is older now & it is very difficult to care for him at home on a 24-7..

Lisa,
I feel for you since I have Fibro also.. Think mine came brome a broken neck ( way back when) but I know what you go through & know others in worse state than me..
I found a great DR. that has helped me & can keep mine under control MOST OF THE TIME but there are days that are really unbearable.. I do a LOT of meditation that helps with the sleep issues if that my be something you have never tried..

& again we ara keeping in touch thru PCH.. but just wanted to let you know you are NOT alone ..

Glad to see that there are others out there that have dreams of doing something GOOD with their winnings..

Meanwhile, back to the original story of the MegaMillions in Idaho. A very lucky young lady has won this prize, but already has legal woes. She may have to give her deadbeat ex-boyfriend/husband half of the winning prize.
I think that would be my biggest fear of winning a prize. All the lowlife’s coming out of the woodwork trying take the prize money away.

Hi Vickie,
Looks like things are not going our way also. as yours..

I do not think we will get the refinance.. Things in this coutry are SOOO much more intense today.in today;s banking & economy. they make it SO difficult. but I think , who would want to give a 30 year mortgage to a 60 & 62 year old… TOO MUCH RISK@!!
But I LOVE my home & will try my best to keep entering PCH as my mother did when she was alive.. now realizing she did it for the same reasons that I am doing it now… just for a little hope & faith that you can change the situation that you are in… as she did then..

So as I said before I would do GOOD with my winnings,BUT my 1st priority would be to pay off my mortgage…THEN do some good with the rest…
