Do you believe you can win from PCH

On many occasions I have blogged about the importance of believing you can win a prize in the Publishers Clearing House Sweepstakes.

I know from our Prize Patrol visits to over a thousand winners that without belief and faith these people would not have entered our contests or – heaven forbid! – have won Big Checks worth thousands even millions of dollars.

Some people have asked me whether our list of winners includes any pastors or priests who are known to believe in a lot more than PCH.  Verily, verily: the answer is “Yes. Many.”

Father Mike Berner, a Roman Catholic priest from Iowa, won $1 Million.  His win was covered by a Joan Lundin TV special and led to national appearances with David Letterman and Rosie O’Donnell.  Another million dollar winner, Gertrude Hausman of Pennsylvania, was married to a Lutheran minister.

One time we brought an upstate NY Episcopal congregation into the act when we awarded a $25,000 check to its rector at the coffee hour after a Sunday service.  His immediate reaction was: “Well, thank God from whom all blessings flow!”  We awarded the needy parish another $5,000 for all their help.

Another prize-winning minister joined us at a winner celebration dinner in New York, gave a very thankful benediction, and sent us a thank-you note saying “Keep spreading God’s joy.”  I recall several other pastors – men and women, some active, some retired – who shouted “Thank you Lord” or “Hallelujah!” when we arrived.

Most recently the Prize Patrol surprised two more church persons — on two successive days.  On November 24 we shocked Donna Boyd of Corpus Christi, TX, with $10,000 — at a Lutheran church where she is the parish secretary.  The pastor observed the “winning moment” and told us that made him a “PCH believer.”  Then on November 25 – two days before Thanksgiving — we found Baptist missionary Brian Willis  at his Lexington, SC, home and “christened” him as our newest Million Dollar SuperPrize winner .

Of course displays of religious belief don’t come only from the ministers.  As you’ve seen in our TV spots, many laypersons express their thanks to the Almighty within seconds of the “winning moment.”  On more than a few occasions the wins have been described as “a miracle” and “an answer to prayer.”

Whether you are religious or not, the point is: You can — and you should — believe that YOU can win a Big Check from Publishers Clearing House!  So don’t delay: Enter today – and every day!

  1. My name is Debra. Over the past six months I have received several approximately ten different people and associates leaving me messages and some I have spoke with promising me that I have won millions of dollars and a Mercedes and thousands a week only to find out it was fraud. I almost cried one time. My finances are low. With not enough to pay my bills. I just don’t know what to do. So I am going to give you all the calls I received.

    1. Hi Debra, we’re sorry the scammers are bothering you. Please report all contacts from scammers to PCH via this link: PCH does partner with the Federal Trade Commission and we send all scam reports to them so please make sure you let us know anytime a scammer contacts you. Remember, the real PCH never notifies major prize winners via phone, standard mail, email, or social media, and we never ask winners to pay to claim their prize. You can see more Safety Tips here: Please be careful everyone; don’t become a scammer’s victim.

  2. I believe I have been doing this for a long time I got to believe and I do enjoy it and the day I win I don’t know what will happen so hope to see you soon
