Forever Changed by PCH – Gerard Rivera’s Winner Story

Hi everyone!  This is Matt K. from PCH Creative.  We’ve all seen the winning moments of our fantastic SuperPrize winners on TV or maybe even on YouTube.  But what happens when the Prize Patrol leaves and the winner is left Forever Changed with this incredible windfall of serious money?  Over the next several weeks, I’ll be interviewing some of our past winners and asking them just what DID happen after the Prize Patrol van rolled away!  We’ll find out how they reacted, how their lives were transformed, and what they can do now that they couldn’t have done before.  Let’s take a look at this week’s touching profile with Gerard Rivera from 2012!

Sometimes people come from humble beginnings.  But like many of us in America, you pull yourself up from your bootstraps and make the best of the gifts you’ve been given.  Other times you’re on life’s journey and you’re suddenly dealt a bad hand.  This was the case of Philadelphia winner Gerard Rivera.

Gerard Rivera

When we surprised Gerard with his check, we couldn’t have come at a better time,” says Danielle Lam of the Prize Patrol.  “Gerard was previously employed as a health aide worker, but due to his own health issues, he had to take a leave of absence.  All he wanted to do was to help others, but doing so would have just made him more sick.”

I caught up with Gerard recently and asked him about his big win. “I just had this feeling that this was going to be it,” says Gerard.  “I had a feeling I was going to win.  My situation in life was pretty bad.  I was relying a lot on the kindness of other people to help me out.  It was a difficult time.”

Gerard won $1.25 Million through PCHLotto.  He had seen the Publishers Clearing House commercials on TV and went online to check out the sites.

I like the lotto stuff, so I just started playing,” he says.

Gerard Rivera’s wife wasn’t home when we first arrived up,” Danielle Lam remembers.  “So when she first showed up, they ran to each other and instantly embraced.  It was like out of a movie!”

Gerard Rivera Forever Changed

Since winning, Rivera has moved out of his neighborhood in Philadelphia to start a new life in Florida.

I wanted to be really smart with my money.  I didn’t go on any crazy vacations.  I started my own company and bought an apartment building.  That’s where I live, and I work on taking care of my tenants.  Things are so much better now!”

Rivera always wanted to work for himself, and now he can do it, thanks to PCH and a little luck!

I just want to say thanks to Publishers Clearing House on behalf of myself and my family for this blessing…[for the] opportunities.  To everyone that’s out there, keep trying!  [All of] the Prize Patrol is great!  Danielle Lam treated me well, and they’d do the same for you!  Just keep dreaming!  Dreams come true!”

Do you remember Gerard’s winning moment? Well you can watch it again, right here!

When I asked Gerard if he hopes to see the Prize Patrol again, Rivera knew just where he’d like to see them: “I’d love for them to come to my apartment building and give a big prize to one of my tenants. I hope someone one day has this blessing too!”

Hearing a story like this is so inspiring!  Good things DO happen to good people, and YOU could be next!

Matt K.
PCH Creative

P.S. I was really touched that Gerard would want his tenants to get their own big winning moment!  Let’s pretend you were already a SuperPrize winner — who would YOU want to get a big winning moment next?

What a touching and great story. I am sure there will be more Gerard in the future who will win one of the big PCH million prize. I believe you have to win first, then the person/people who you think need the most will come up automatically.

I would want the love of my life to have it. He’s always stuck by my side, and has been pretty down on his own luck lately. I feel like he is so much more than he gives himself credit for. He really is always there for everyone, always at his own expense.

I’m entering the current contest, since it’s draw date is on my birthday. I probably don’t have a bat’s chance in the sun to win, but it definitely would make a world of difference for us. Not to mention a pretty nice birthday present. 8)

I just love Gerard’s winning moment. He seems to be smart and kind and it is joy to watch the expressions on his face! So happy for him!

I would want to see a young man that had hopes and dreams as a kid and big plans as a teen and things went wrong in so many areas of his life. One disappointment after another. Has never known his biological father. I thank God he has pulled himself out of mental as well as physical pain and has overcome abuse, etc., Wanted to be a marine biologist or a chef.. :) I am talking about my son! :’(
I thank God that this weekend he and his wife and child are reuniting and have found a little house to rent so now he has his little family but no job and ‘very’ limited use of his left hand… but he counts his blessings… YES, I would want to see him win with all my heart.

A.B. From Ocala Fl said...

I love Gerard history it’s very touching . It’s kind of remind me the history of my life. With 5 kids we too depend on people kindness to pay rent, utilities and put food on table. Last year we were about to be homeless and a friend offer us hospitality to his house in Ocala Fl. and we thank God for that. Since then we were looking for job we can’t find nothing it’s hard to find a job in Ocala and we can’t afford to move to another state or city. Now everything is falling apart, the weight is heavy on our shoulder and we feel like we have all the bad luck in the world. I have so much going on in my life now I can’t even dream. But like Gerard I have a strong feeling I’ll be the November 26 winner. And since I know the sour taste of misery and poverty I would like to see anyone who is living a life similar to mine be a winner.

Pardon me if I say to much that’s the only way I can getting thing out of my chest and I’m very grateful to PCH for this blog.

Would like to see PCH start giving smaller amounts to larger number of folks.

How bout it PCH…lets start changing alot of peoples lives, not just one person. I like that idea very much!!

Wow what a inspiring story! Congratulations again Gerard, I’m so happy that someone like you won because you really needed the money!

I’m a person who is always giving of my time and service to help other people anyway that I can. My husband and I have raised five children who are all gown now; although, it wasn’t easy. We also for the last six years been raising three of our grandchildren on a very low income. I live only on a disability check which I get every month and my husband is retired which he didn’t get his full benefits.

I have been living in my home for (30) years and had to get a ‘reverse mortgage’ and was very happy to have enough equity in our home so that we could do this. I love my home and if I win, I want to buy back my house from the government and fix it up and help some of my struggling family members and my (10) grandchildren. This would be such a ‘blessing”!

So many know Ive been a fan of the PCH. I cant even begin but say I want to share a windfall to my family especially to my father who deserves a chance to start something with no worries to capital, my sister who’s been a huge voice in her community of construction of the west side and families she supports. i love to be able to get the ball rolling for her to find a place she could build her own. I help students with their education and its been present that I make a difference i would be in awe to help my company as a non profit to give supports the the workers that provide other people striving to have independence. Co., i work for depend on good people helping others. Government is hard on these agencies and it trickles down to the ones that are in need of services. I could make a difference. And i do, and this chance to a super prize would be totally awesome.

    Hi Gail, Thank you for your loyalty to PCH. There are many draws, unfortunately there can only be one winner. Remember there are a lot of people who enter to win. At Publishers Clearing House our winner selection process is completely random and unbiased. All Giveaways are conducted by Giveaway Supervisors and overseen by independent auditors. We have no way of determining, in advance, who our winners may be or where they may come from. You never know who will become the next BIG winner, so don’t lose hope!
