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!

  1. As a single mom of three boys doing it all on my own so many storms struggles learning and growing I would make sure they are all set financially, then we would cater to homeless Children around the world because that’s our future on holidays we would feed the homeless and start out reach programs helping to change lives some people are to busy celebrating while there are human beings left alone in the cold to suffer in NYC the money would be used to help those who need it not to keep all of it because it’s a blessing to share! Thank you.

  2. PCH please make me a millionaire I want to go to all the right clubs and all the right beaches in all the right places that I could never do without being a millionaire I hope you come by and make my fantasy a reality

  3. I worked hard building a business but i lost it when i hit a deer on the interstate going 70 mph, a month later my back went out and because we were cleaning gambling parlor the owner wanted the boss on site, I could not. Doctors would not do anything until I had insurance. 6 years later I finally got my disability and hopefully they can still help fix my back. I never gave up on the though of starting a new business I will not be able to clean but my big picture is owning a flee market. If I am blessed to win I will need to buy a suv, start a business and than look for a home to buy. If I win this will help me make my dreams come true.I wanted to thank you for allowing me to get into your sweepstakes. God Bless you all and good luck to all.

  4. If I won the PCH “Forever” Prize I would continue to work 4 more years and finally retire at age 80, leaving a donation to the Cardiac/Pulmonary Wing in our new hospital in Milford since I started that program in 1986 in my memory.

  5. I would pay my deceased sons taxes on his land for my grandchildren so they don’t lose the land and go to Hawaii and help the homeless especially the single moms share with my family of course and pch for getting me rich

  6. I am a 81 year old cancer survivor. I am having therapy for my SI joint and will be in a wheel chair if they cannot correct it. We may have to go into an assisted care program for help. My four Grandsons are in college and live at home because of lack of funds. I care so much about some church oriented human care projects. Believe me, every penny will go for something needed very much!

  7. I would help my father and grandmother have a better life and donate to pch and local charities to help my comunity and buy me something nice for once I never won anything but I’m glad to be given the chance hopefully one day I will win to help my father and family and community thanks
