What Would YOU Do If You Won The “Forever” Prize?

Forever Prize

Hello PCH Fans!

It’s time to look forward to FOREVER! That’s right, the “Forever” Prize is back, and it’s guaranteed to be awarded NEXT MONTH!

I know the excitement has to be building for everyone. I mean, that’s a lot to think about.  YOU would get $5,000 a Week for Life. Then to top it all off, it would continue on to another person for THEIR lifetime.

The possibilities seem endless when you think about it. Granted, a lot of possibilities opened up when I won the $1 Million SuperPrize in August of 2008. But the “Forever” Prize would definitely up the ante.

What would I do if I won such a prize? I really had to think about it!

I would:

  • Start a scholarship at Toledo Central Catholic High School and The University of Toledo. Education is a great investment for the community.
  • Make larger donations to local and national charities that I support. My local Humane Society could definitely use some assistance.
  • Build a second home somewhere a little warmer. Sometimes Ohio winters can get a little wicked!
  • Buy my husband’s dream car for him. I guess I’d better double check what that is! As for me, I love my Smokey, my 2013 Ford Focus.
  • Finally take a jump over the ‘Big Pond’ with my husband to do a few vacations in Europe. Maybe we can find the city where the Bostelmans originated and share our findings with the family.
  • Buy a Playstation 4 when it releases! OK, well, I’m already saving for that, but I’d probably need two if I had two homes. Right? Right.
  • Take my buddies to an all-expenses paid trip to DragonCon and/or the San Diego ComicCon. It would be so cool to see movie stars AND get exclusive first peeks for movies and TV shows.
  • RETIRE! After a month or two “off”, I’d probably start volunteering for a local organization a few days a week, but that leaves plenty of time to travel and maybe even work on some creative projects.
  • Whew, that was fun. But wait! Then the person who I would pass the winnings onto would need to figure out their own game plan. No pressure!

But now I turn the question over to YOU. If YOU won the “Forever” Prize in August, what would you do, and who would get the legacy portion of the prize? Let us know in the comments below. And don’t forget to ENTER ENTER ENTER!

GOOD LUCK!

Hi Natalie Bostelman, 2008 SuperPrize Winner a.k.a. PCH Goodwill Ambassador

I apologize for being so rude on Facebook three years ago but I’m no longer having my Facebook account three years later, am I decided this week that I’m not going to be in a future PCH commercial when you & your Prize Patrol crew are going to surprise me & award me as a Local Area TV winner with $1,000.00 so I will get a chance to meet both Nicole T. of PCH Lotto & her PCH employees at PCH Headquarters in person for the first time ever because I been entering the PCH contests for nine long years now!!!???

Hi Natalie! Great story! There’s so much I could do with the “FOREVER PRIZE”. I would pay tithes, pay off student loans, pay off current mortgage, buy a new home(I’m ready for a new house…lol), buy a mercedes benz, buy my husband his favorite truck, start having my kids(maybe), travel…that’s a lot just thinking about it. I would list my grandmothers name for the legacy prize just to honor her because she raised me from childhood up.

If i were to win this $$, 5,000 a week the very first thing I would buy would be a house in the country, so my 3 Hearts can come home.. I want to grow all the fruits and vegetables, and its like come get ur food over here, just save some for the next. I want to be a Inspiration to our Children because they are our future. I want to design clothes on the spot and not charge, because the smile and joy I can bring to someone is one of the Best feelings and thats priceless! :-) I want to knockon a random door introduce myself and my kids and pay there rent for that month or buy them a car, “the Joy I get from doing that is PRICELESS”, and dont you know “the best things in life money cant buy”. But in this moment in time this $$ would definitely be a life changing moment that would be cherished and passed on to my beautiful daughter Jolina Barton who right now is 6 years old. She is the youngest of 3 kids her brothers T.J 10, and Leonard 9. Oh and one more thing were gonna design and build our racetrack n the country. You get me and you in the same car and ima beat you

Dear PCH, I am just thankful for the opportunity to enter into the sweepstakes. The Forever prize is a great prize.I do have a question about this prize. Awhile back I received a special early look bulletin in the mail for the February 28, 2013 Forever Prize (Giveaway 1830). I returned it before the deadline. Is my entry for the February 28th 2013, $5000 a week Forever Prize still eligible and is it still on the winner selection list for the August 29, 2013, $5000 a week Forever Prize (Giveaway 1830)? Please respond. Thank you.

Dear PCH, please respond to my question. Does a timely mail in entry remain on the winner selection list until the official Giveaway end if there has not been a matching number returned from an advanced look or special early look draw. I know the prize rolls over, but does your entry roll over and remain eligible (for a second chance random drawing) until giveaway end? Please see my earlier post and respond.

First I would cry knowing I would never have to give up my home and would always be able to care for my cats. Get rid of debt. Buy a truck and TV for a friend. If there was anyway to help another friend whose husband’s life is coming to end whose dying could take years.Maybe have someone drive me to see my sister living in another state flying is no fun. Rebuild my home. Help people and animals. Rebuild the Herbarium I volunteer at or donate to it. Adopt more homeless animals and a micro pig. As my mom always said if wishes were horses beggars would ride. It just never seems possible, everyday I worry. It would be nice to win enough to get out of debt and have peace of mind.

Thank you Natalie for sharing your story and thoughts with us. I have read about your winning moment many times and I also watched you on the Ricki Lake Show. You are the one who gave me hope of winning from Publishers Clearing House. I thought it was great you were able to build your dream home with the 1 million dollars you won from PCH.
I agree with what you said about the weather here in Ohio the winters can be brutal.I don’t blame ya for wanting a place to go to warm up. Me and my husband have even talked about taking our boys to Florida or somewhere warm for Christmas because the weather in Ohio is so very cold that time of the year.I would want to build me and my families dream home if I was to win PCH Forever Prize of $5,000 A Week Forever. And I would fill our new home with brand new furniture and especially each bedroom would be picked to show everyone’s personalities. I would also take my husband Brian and two boys Hunter and Jayson on a trip around the world. I would rent or buy an RV for us to drive on our trip.The RV would be our home away from home. I would love to take my family to see the Grand Canyon & Gettysburg National Park & Yellowstone National Park. There is many more places I’m sure we would go see as a family but I better leave some places to Brian and our boys to decide on. There wouldn’t be any set time to be back and we would take plenty pictures, videos, and buy many souvenirs along the way. That isn’t all I would do if I was to win the Forever Prize on August 29th from PCH. I would donate to my boys school to show my appreciation for everything the teachers and staff have all done for my boys and all the other children. The people at my boys school are very special and have made a impression on them that will last forever.I like your idea too about the Humane Society.
Publishers Clearing House Forever Prize of $5,000 a week forever on August 29th would let me do all these amazing things with my family if I was to win. And then I think about how it would continue to help my boys when I get old and grey and can’t help them as much as I would like. I would pick my boys to be who receives the forever Prize for their lifetime. I think it would be a once in a lifetime event to win any of Publishers Clearing House Sweepstakes! I have to say though I would absolutely love to win the $5,000 A Week Forever Prize Publishers Clearing House is awarding on August 29th. I feel like I enter as much as I possibly could because I go on all their websites they have sweepstakes and contest on & I do this every day. So I am giving myself the best chance I could ever have of winning from PCH. Now I pray and wait to see if I will be that lucky winner chosen by my entry getting drawn to be the winning number. I hope I can one day be telling my story of Publishers Clearing House giving my family this life altering gift.

aloha PCH,

after much thought, i decided the best way to enjoy the forever prize would be simply to share it. my goal would be to fund a non profit organization for lower income families focusing on ways to greatly improve their quality of life through different programs. some of these would include budgeting on a fixed income, self sustainability, work trades and job training, and possibly a community based rehabilitation/counseling program for drugs and alcohol abuse. i feel that my town would greatly benefit from this and it would be wonderful to be a part of the bigger picture.

thanks for giving us all something to look forward to!

I love reading everyone’s ideas of what they would do if they won the PCH Forever Prize. And thank you Natalie for sharing what you would do if you were to win the Forever Prize. I really like your idea about the Humane Society. If I were to win that is something I would check into for sure. Also I would donate money to my boys school so they could repair many things wrong with the brick building and the inside of the school. And I would donate money to their school to go to the teachers and staff to show how much I appreciate everything they have done through out the years for my two boys. I would want to surprise each teacher and staff with a present like a basket of something for that person and put some money in it so they could do something special for themselves. It would be a thank you basket for each one of those very important people at their school. And that isn’t it. If I were to win the PCH $5,000 a week Forever Prize I would buy this house me and my husband and boys have talked about owning for a very long time now. It is so beautiful on the outside and can only imagine what it looks like in the inside. No we have never seen the inside of this house but we all took one look at it and new it would be our dream home if we could ever afford it. It also sits on probably a couple of acres of land which surrounds this house and it is like a portrait that someone drew. And after I have bought our dream home I would buy me and my husband new cars. I want to take my two boys shopping at a toy store and tell them they could get anything they want and don’t worry about price because no matter what it is they can get it. So it would be like Christmas for them but they get to pick the toys out themselves. They never ask for anything me and my husband always ask them if they want a new game or a toy. We can’t do it as much as we would like but we love to be able to take our two boys to pick something out that they want. So if I were to be the lucky winner on August 29th I would take them and spoil them more often. I would also go set them up an account at our bank and put money back for their futures. If I were to win the $5,000 a week from PCH my winnings would go towards making life for my family easier and turning our crazy schedules into much needed family time! I want to have that day when Prize Patrol knocks on my door and I open it to them telling me they are here to change our lives. I had won Publishers Clearing House Forever Prize. I don’t know if I will ever have Prize Patrol at my doorstep but it is great to have a dream. My dream come true would be to win Publishers Clearing House and give them what I have always wanted too. A life with security and knowing we can go enjoy life the way we have talked about so many times and knowing it will be ok to take a break and not fall behind. Good luck to all the PCH fans! Have a great day and I hope God blesses you all!

If I won I would buy a home in an different city and state for my family so we can get out of this neighborhood it’s not the worst but definitely not the best. I would get married to the loving guy that i am with now but we cannot because we don’t have any money. I would finish my schooling to become a nurse and later on a because I have wished about helping children that are sick as I was as a child and how my 3 year old son is now. I would buy a car which is something I can’t do right now. I would also love to travel its a dream of mines I have only been out of New York State twice. I would also donate a be a big part of this program that me and a friend of mines is working on that will get children off the streets and into books and jobs and traveling the money soul play a big part because now we are just waiting on grants and these children need help now. There is a lot of other things that I can think of to do with the money as well but I would definitely pass the money over to my son when I can no longer receive it.

Then I would help other family members pay off their homes and bills. If time permits I would travel a little. However, as a military wife I have traveled just about everywhere I want to go. I would leave the rest to my four children and they can help their own children.

When I when the forever prize, I will do things to help save the environment for future generations.

First I would expand my worm farm into a large, temperature controlled facility. Doing this will divert tons of organic waste from the landfills. I will need a manure spreader to feed the bins and a large backhoe to move supplies around. Also a dump truck. I’d also pay off all of my bills, student loans, and start investing in more precious metals, penny stocks. Then after all of this gets done (probably 2-3 years). I’d buy a house and restore my 1969 mustang. I’d then live off of $1,000 per week while investing the rest and building my business even further.

Get ready to take care of my parents, purchase my first home, be there for my children, parents, and family. I would be so teary yet happy if I would ever win. My life has been one disappoint after another, but I’m smart and happy all the while.

Thank you Natalie, for sharing all your dreams with all of us and you really got me to think about what I would do if I won this August 29th!!!

Well, I have said it all before and that be…I have a long list of things but the most important thing is to making your money last so I was just looking at your PCH tips and I would do what PCH has to offer in tips on how to make your money last a life time! I have said it all before and I will say it again, just like everyone else, how I would want to spend it on a new car (C-MAX), homes (the two homes next to my Mothers house, trips with my family (across the USA, Europe…), help my Mom out as much as I can, make sure my husband would retire early and help my community out as much as I can too, but I would like the money to last a life time and to be financially secure!!!

Just like when someone wins a SUPER MEGA Prize from PCH!!! I’m looking forward to see who will win this wonderful SUPER MEGA Prize from PCH this August 31st. So, I just wanted to wish everyone “GOOD LUCK,” that have been entering so very diligently for years or even just starting to enter PCH!!! It is a lot of fun entering and playing the games in hopes that one day you will be the next BIG SUPER MEGA Prize winner!!! I just know I try my best to enter everyday!!!

I hope you can top John Wyllie this year, because I always start to cry when I see the video footage on him getting the Big Check and when he is shaking because he is overwhelmed by the magnitude of the Prize and everyone around him and when he says he is going to help his father, that is it for me and I just start to cry, big time. That is one of the best winning moments ever!!! And, I hope Mr. Wyllie and his family are doing well?

Well, one can only hope this will happen to them when they enter, I know I do, so I just wanted to wish everyone again “GOOD LUCK” in entering for this wonderful gift of SUPER MEGA Prize from PCH!!! Wow just saying that just gave me a chill, oh so very scary, but so very exciting too!!!

I think I have been doing this a very long time now and one can only hope, pray and dream about winning so much and that is why I say GOOD LUCK to everyone entering PCH!!!

Well Ms. Natalie, I hope you get to make all your dreams happen and I hope you are having a wonderful and safe summer!!!

Thanks again for the help PCH and good luck to all. And please if you must go outside do not drink, beer, soda, or tea because they will increase your chances of a heat stroke. Instead please drink water or kool aide, or even gatoraide because they will not dehydrate your system. And please take care & be safe, Luann

I would pay off my brother’s house who was good enough to take me in off the street literally a bit over a year and half ago. I would pay off my elderly mothers home. I would make sure that all of my immediate familys educational needs and loans were paid….then I would help the local food bank.I would take a much needed vacation to visit my mom whom I have not seen since she remarried…1977! I would start there and see what else God; of my misunderstanding; put on my heart and do whatever it is cuz that has been keeping me going for the last 25 yrs. And I would name my nephew, Roger James Grato III; the next to the ‘Legacy’ portion since he has recently been informed he will have medical needs the rest of his life and I never want him to worry as I have had to over some of those 25 years about medical necessities….Just sayin’ that’s where I will start.

I would start with getting our home out of foreclosure. Then see if it’s fixable or if we should just demolish it and start over. Then I would fix my car and get the rest of my family a nice used car. Start taking more classes so I can get into nursing faster and finally quit doing hair after 25 years of it. Oh yeah and finally go to the doctor and get testing done to find out if I have R.A. or vitamin deficiencies like most of my family. Then help all of them out, as well as others that I know need help. That’s if I don’t die of a heart attack when I win.Lol

My life was on a downward spiral… fortunately I discovered, through my own research and dedication to wellness, that change can only happen within…the people who inspired, believed in me and saved my life are the people that i have decided, to take care of in the present and future. I developed a website, about 7 years ago, called “KindnessCures.net” It is an artistic and spiritual avenue for me to be able to support the simple “act of kindness” promote compassion and support those who constantly give with no expectations. This would allow my “mission” to grow. Thank you for doing what you do!!!

It would mean so much to me if I won the “forever” prize. When
I became very sick about five years ago and my family wasn’t sure I would make it they have stepped Now Thanks to my Sister
and Daughter I am on the mend. I make less than $9,000 a year now.
I would like to repay them as much as I could and my Daughter would be able to get “forever” when I am no longer here. Hopefully, that won’t be too soon!!

I like your ideas! I would definitely start up scholarship funds at the universities that I have graduated from & I would do a lot more with charitable donations. I would support animal welfare leagues, cancer research & national parks. A second house would be great & traveling a must. Probably a couple of new cars for my family, although nothing outrageous. And, of course, you can’t forget supporting “Big Brother” via the tax cuts that the government would take! I’m very envious of whomever wins!

I have been unemployment for a while now.

If I win the super prize that will help me pay all my debt and bills. I will donate some money to many charities that sent me letter asked me for help. I will help my daughter pay for her tuition and cost of living since she has no job also. I will help my family and friends who has financial problem.

I wish I am the winner this coming August 29 super prize. I have been a good PCH fan and good supported to PCH but I never win anything. I am running out of money now with no luck of getting a job yet. Please let me be a winner and I will be able to continue support PCH and help my family and friend whatever they need in life. My life and my family life will got easier.

Thank you so much for letting me share a comment.

Ron McBride said...

Well, since I have been out of work for 2 months, and my wife’s work is barely paying the bills, the first thing I would do is get all the bills caught up. It is scary to know that your family (wife & 2 kids, 2 & 7) are too close to losing your home and being on the streets. Then I would have to say if by some miracle I were to win it, I would start donating to charities and such, because they help millions of people who need help.

First I would get my husband and I reliable cars. Then a house to live in and help our children out, they are all grown with families but are struggling. I would then open a couple of Halfway Homes for people suffering with the disease of addiction, my husband and I have years of recovery and have gone to school for addiction, my husband hopes to be a Psychologist. We would also open a home for people HIV. There are other things I would do to help my church and other charities. My husband and I are up there in years and would like to enjoy the rest of our lives in peace from bill collectors. We are both ill but not dying yet so our payout would be short but God willing sweet!!!

I am impressed…and its mesmerizing to even consider what one could do with such a ‘Prize’ as $5k/week forever could be; it is simply a testament to the power of our Democratic System, to Capitalism and the American Way, that such a Prize could even be given! More importantly, as I think of how all these monies have come to be…all the hard-working folk from ALL walks of Life..giving and sharing by purchasing a magazine or music CD of favorite tunes, a special radio that works without batteries or any of the hundreds of neat ‘inventions’ or toys, books, hand-crafted art in the form of Painting Lessons or Jewelry..it goes on and on…ALL these handy or convenient ‘items’ that PCH offers to provide to the American, well, not to forget the worldwide consumers..who find Value and a fair trade for their dollars through the hard work of the folks at PCH who strive to bring ALL of these neat things to us year after year…Without going into too great a story here, let me just wrap it up to say I believe in that idea that what goes around comes around…that one can reap as one sows. Not that I would give it ALL away, but I would certainly be humbled by being selected as the ‘Winner’…and would honestly find ways I could pay it back like Ray Kroc of McDonald’s did; or Jeff Bezos of Amazon who is fighting to save the American Press…and on and on..I would definitely leave a Legend, and would choose a person whom I thought could leave an equally important Legend for his Family, and the American Way! –Peace & Love, Edwin J

If we are fortunate enough to win the $5000 prize, I wouls make sure to get a Wheel Chair which would help my wife to be able to move throughout the house as well as outside. and to be sure that the Chair would fit in our car so we could travel. If it wouldn’t fit into the car, I would buy a VAN which could be equipped to take the van with us on trips and allow us to travel as we had planned to do after retirement, and then our lives were changed so that we cannot travel as we had planned. Also, I would use some of the funds to have a big Family Reunion for all of our Children, Grandchildren and Great-grandchildren, which will total 49 by next month. We would have a great time planning our activities for as long as we are able to travel. I would also allow some contributions for the Military Organizations and Veteran Organizations that are in need of funds and help.

Well if by an odd off the wall i would win these are the things i would do to help everyone out in the U.S. more than one time. The first thing i would do is to mail out a copy of my book to everyone in the U.S. because i know how everyone can get free medical care in 3 ways and none of them are medicaid. And i have many more ways of how to get Free medication for people.
The second thing i would do is to put in safe rooms at all hospitals, nursing homes and schools in the U.S. Because it is a shame that there is only 1 hospital in the U.S. that has one in it and it happens to be the Federal Gov’s. hospitals which should make everyone very mad as it does me! Then i would pay to make sure that every home and Apt building in the US has a safe room for people to go to in case of bad weather. So please everyone take care & be safe, Luann
