The “Good Luck” Fountain

We have a new “good luck” fountain here at Publishers Clearing House Sweepstakes Headquarters, the place where good fortune smiles on lucky winners every day!

As part of the PCH building update and renovation project, our crackerjack Facilities Department installed a beautiful fountain in the round pond at what’s fondly known as “Winners Circle.”  Both decorative and functional, this sparkling spray greets PCHers and visitors in a refreshing way.  When I pass it on the way to work every morning I’m “mist-ified” by thoughts of all the good luck rituals associated with fountains and “flooded” with fond memories of other magnificent ones I’ve seen in my travels.

Ever since childhood, I’ve been told you can wish on a fountain and throw in a coin for good luck.  I’ve done it myself more than a few times and doled out countless pennies for my daughters to continue the tradition.

Whether sleek or ornate, large or small, a fountain is a focal point in the landscape and a seemingly magical gathering place to make dreams come true and grant wishes, or at the very least amuse onlookers.  My two favorite fountains – other than our new PCH “good luck” fountain, of course! – are La Fontaine des Quatre Dauphins (Fountain of the Four Dolphins) in Aix-en-Provence, France and La Fontana di Trevi (Fountain of Trevi) in Rome, Italy.  You can search online at PCH Search and Win to see images of these historic watery landmarks.  I spent a semester studying in Aix-en-Provence during junior year of college and daily walked past the four dolphins swimming atop swirling stone waves.  Oui, oui, I tossed in a few francs for good luck, too.  The impressive Trevi monument was my “must-go-to” stop every evening after dinner out while on a dream vacation in Rome with my husband a number of years ago.  Legend has it visitors to Trevi Fountain can wish for good fortune or help for someone in need.  Yep, you guessed it – some lire took the plunge from my wallet to that Italian wishing well.

What about YOU?  Have you ever made a wish while tossing coins in a fountain?  Do you have a favorite fountain?  Have you wished to become a lucky winner in the Publishers Clearing House Sweepstakes?  Do you feel like one of our PCH Facebook SuperFans, Bunne, who recently told us: “Casting all my pennies in this [PCH] fountain… hopefully coming up with PCH-Dollars!!! Boy do I wish!!!!”

Here’s to hoping the new addition to the PCH pond will “pour out” good luck to you!

Deborah Holland

Executive Vice President

i have always been fasinated by fountains,especially the way the water just flows out so perfect into a pretty pool or design.i dream of building my own fountain with koi goldfish and a pretty lanscaping design i made up on my own. i hope one day it’ll be reality instead of blirred dreams that seem to never want to become real…the main part would be even prettier at nite as the fish swim in the waters showing off at how pretty their water hole is..

Goodevening Deborah,

I just got out of Dental School. You know I have to wonder, why is it that everything you and the staff at PCH do; have to reflect “Winning”?

I, along with Millions of others have played your PCHGAMES, the “Winning Wheel” The Puzzles Games, The Card Games, The PCHseach&Win..

I’ve won nothing, and I’ve played your games each and everyday, month after month, year after year.

Just how much Mrs. Holland, have you lines your pockets with the “Magazine Orders” of those that have purchased with your day to day buying signals.

I’m sorry Deborah Holland, your not beleavable at all!
I know, I know, Mrs. Holland, theres alot of desperate people whom will think or do anything.

It’s so easy to target women of all sectors of the world whom are in really tough positions and promise them the world, when all you really want, is to sell them “Magazines”..

None of these games work, and Publishers Clearing House and it’s “Ethics” are very, very questionalble.

I know you have those whom will beleave you, thinking that someday, it will be there time;
when in fact; it will never ever, materialize into anything.

I for the life of me Mrs. Holland, don’t know how you and your upper-level management can live with yourselves by doing what you do.
It’s all make believe and you know it to be.
You have have spent numerous amounts o=f “magazine” money to update your “property” to what?
Show off what you’ve built for yourselves, it’s selfisf, pure selfish!

You and your staff don’t like it when Americans disagree with you; you then try at least to minimize what we the people think of your ethics of promising people something that will never ever materialize.

So, the poor fools on this site and Blog just keep on Rolling your “Fake Spinning WheelS” that bring nothing but another turn and some stupid “Points” that also do nothing.

Your Pure Liars, and your Board is also Pure Liars, whom simply look for the next sale to take advantage of people world wide.

Is there some winnings, Yes I bebleave there is: Does it justify your actions for how you use people and destort the facts of what you do, NO!

You people are wolves in sheeps clothing and you know it.
You find what I write funny, but it’s no, at all.

For the next human being whom trust in a so called “American Company called PCH” who Lies to it’s patrons of the possiblility to win some “Money” it has already scammed from it’s own members.

Goodday Mrs. Holland,

By Next Year Your Projections Should allow your to Revamp all of Winners Circle!

Thank you Deborah Holland, Executive Vice President, for that inspiring letter to all of us about lucky fountains.

Well, all I can say is (YES, YES, YES) that I have gone to the La Fontana di Trevi (Fountain of Trevi) in Rome, Italy with my father in 2000, and I have thrown in a coin or two, to bring me good fortune (which is my son). It was so very magical there in Rome, it was lovely. I really felt that one day I would go back with my husband, because at that time we did not have any children. As you can see I have never gone back to Rome Italy, but it is one of my many dreams vacations that I think about, I would love to go back there with my family, now that my son is bigger. And, I am so very sorry about your wallet, I do hope he was caught.

I do love fountains and if I can throw in a coin or two and make a wish, I do so, it just is a lot of fun and you can only hope and pray that your dreams will come true one day. Just to let you know, I love the PCH website and gaming and I am a SuperFan on Facebook, I do wish that I could thrown in a couple of coins in your fountain at PCH and make a wish and the wish would be something that I did not think I would tell you, it has to be a secret, until it comes true. All, I can do is to hope, pray and dream that one day I will be on the PCH wall as a BIG MEGA SUPER WINNER at PCH!!!!

I love your story about PCH getting a Lucky Fountain and I do hope it brings every one GOOD LUCK!!!!

I certainly do wish to be a lucky winner in the Publishers Clearinghouse Sweepstakes. Any amount would be appreciated, but the super prize would be most helpful.

Tonight, I was happy to score a free Conan O’Brien t-shirt! If only winning a PCH prize were as easy! Maybe this will be the start of a winning streak! I BELIEVE! :DD

Margaret Martin said...

I started by entering my Mom’s Publisher’s Clearing House Sweepstakes forms for her way back in 1977 since she felt (& still feels) it’s all just a scam. She hated looking for the different stickers, seals & scratch off items but I liked it. My father verbally abused my Mom for years & when he started to do the same to me- she finally found the strength to divorce him. She struggled for years to care for my sister & I. Now she stuggles (like so many others) to get by on what little she gets from Social Security. I moved to Florida hoping to get better paying work- only to have none at all. My allergies are much worse down here. It’s only gotten cold enough to frost things not snow, allergins are never covered so I get no relief. I can’t escape this searing Hades Hole of a state- unless I win some form of lottery. So even if my Mom is right… I’ll just keep hoping & praying that one of us will win so we can see each other again & be able to do some “fun” things we could never afford to do. Live in a house with NO mortgage, drive a NICE used car instead of rusty old clunkers, go to a movie theatre & actually have popcorn & a drink, be able to make BBQ ribs for the family reunions but the thing I’d want the most? To be able to give my Mom & Step Dad the best 25th wedding anniversary party! Next year- 2013… I want to get 5 sheet cakes in various sizes & flavors & have pictures of them on them. Starting with wedding pics on the bottom & then various ones of them over the 25 years going around to the top. Since they LOVE The Beatles- I’d want characters from The Yellow Submarine movie to be “hanging & plastering” their picks onto the sides of the cake. That would be so awesome! 35 years running & STILL hoping to win!

Then I started upping the anty for charity fountains but I never did it outside of the city expect where permitted. You want to toss you wallet into Bridal Veil Falls in the Columbia Gorge, Oregon!

A fountain points toward the sky and lifts my spirits to soar on high.

A fountain always looks upward, never downward.

There are two kinds of fountains — thoee in city parks that we can toss our good luck coins into and those in Yellowstone National Park that you don’t throw objects into but that lift you heavenward because they aspire fron deep within the bowls of the earth. Our deepest desires that are the most joyful are formed from deep within the chambers of our hearts.

I love fountains in the city parks that dance and soar. I also love geyesers that shoot their water toward the sky and feel a bit of heaven on earth as a watch them.
