New Year, New YOU! PCH Sweepstakes Can Make It Happen!

I hope everyone had a great New Year! I rang it in with my buddies at the local bowling alley. The next morning, my Facebook feed was filled with resolutions and articles about them. You know how that saying goes…”new year, new you!” Well many people were making that come true! I read about friends who were going to start making healthier habits the norm. Exercising more, stopping smoking, and eating better were repeated throughout the newsfeed. Many people were taking the change of the New Year as a chance to start a new chapter of their lives.
I reflected on years past and as to what 2013 would bring. Back in 2008, I was a stressed out lady. I was working three jobs. Then, a major change occurred. The Prize Patrol came to Northwest Ohio looking to hand over a really Big Check to me from the PCH Sweepstakes. Trust me, it was LIFE changing.
When I won the $1 Million SuperPrize in August of 2008, it opened up so many opportunities. For one, I dropped two of my three jobs. My husband Scott and I knocked out our debt, donated some funds to local charities and built our dream home. We went from a small trailer to a two-story home that Scott designed. I had definitely started a new chapter in my own life.

Our Old Trailer

Our New Home

Now my vision is focused forward. This past year I created a new chapter by studying for my Ohio Health and Life Insurance License. (Did I pass? Read about it all here!)

The PCH Sweepstakes really let me become a brand new ME! And it can do the same for you, too — especially if you win the $5,000 a Week “Forever” Prize! (Can you believe that if you win, you’d receive $5,000 A Week for your life, plus after that, $5,000 a week for the life of someone you choose!) It’s a new year, and that could mean a new you, but first you have to enter the PCH Sweepstakes! Do it every chance you get!

GOOD LUCK!

Natalie Bostelman
2008 SuperPrize Winner
PCH Goodwill Ambassador

How did a “August of 2008″ PCH winner named “Natalie Bostelman” revamped her very old trailer into her brand new home in Grand Rapids,Ohio when she already became a PCH prize patrol team member at PCH Headquarters?

    Stancio,

    Natalie does not work at PCH Headquarters and she is not on the Prize Patrol. She is a PCH Goodwill Ambassador and she still lives in Grand Rapids!

    Thanks,
    Victoria At PCH

    A common sense reply to Stancio in the comment above:
    If I/You were a PCH Big Money winner I, and I would think you, would probably ask to be a PCH Ambassador to spread the good word and hence help PCH which had helped you by chance. Wouldn’t it be fun and exciting to share your Good News with others and inspire them with hope? I’m sure there would be travel involved and also inspirational good feelings of helping those who helped you take weight off your shoulders and mind. Traveling, speaking, giving hope and inspiring people is a personal satisfaction that is not a job or work at all. It is waking up every day loving doing whatever you’re doing and speaking from the heart. Just my thoughts that may provide some insight into how I/You would feel in that situation I believe. Think about it and you may have different thoughts?????

Thanks for sharing your story. My biggest wish is that I will be the next big winner so that we can build our dream home and have financial security for our kids and grandkids. I also have a list of organizations that I plan to make yearly donations to. Also thanks for being my friend on Facebook.

To Stancio Butler- let’s clarify the truth before a nasty rumor gets around. Natalie had such an AWESOME reaction to winning, she was LATER (AFTER winning) asked if she wanted to be a Goodeill Ambassador.She brings such positive energy to all she does, who wouldn’t want her to represent them !!!!!! :)
Natalie- loved your blog -thanks for sharing ! and LOVE that PCH is now using a bit of your winning moment in their latest commercial !!!!!!!! It still lights up my day every time I see it !!!

Congratulations Natalie! You are very blessed!

It would be an unbelievable blessing to win because I live a few thousand dollars below the federal poverty level. If I won, the first thing that I would do is pay for my mother’s back operation that she cannot afford. My mother has Peripheral neuropathy and lives in pain every day. She had to quit her job that she loved because she could not do it anymore because of the disease. Instead of getting married in a courthouse, my fiancé and I would able to have a beautiful wedding that we will never get to have. I would love to be able to afford to adopt my adorable stepson. And Instead of putting off having children, my fiancé and I would be able to have kids. I would continue to put myself through college and maintain my 4.0 gpa and I would use the money to pay off my fiancés and my student loans.
