The “Prize” Queen

  1. I wont go into details. Ive been both bad and good in my life. The money would go a long way to making my part of the universe a better place for quite a large number of people and charities. I figure when I go meet My Lord I cant take anything from this world. Not even memories. But maybe I will be remembered.

  2. I have been playing pch for years now, although I have always played through the mail. This is the first year I have played online. I know that the odds of winning are very great. I would love to win the $5,000.00 a week for life. I have never needed it as bad as I do now. Even though the chances are so small, it is nice to dream about it. Since I have been homeless for 5 years and been staying with friends and family during this hard time. I know what is like to be bouncing back and forth on the streets from place to place, is not easy being ill. If I ever won this I would buy a little home of my own. I never understood why people buy mansions to live in because they are rich. It only takes a small space to make a home. I then would build a shelter for homeless people. Then I would give to the cancer research center. I would also give to my churches. Since I can’t take it with me I may as well put it to good use now. I don’t want to pray for money, I think I will save my prayers for people I now who are terminally ill as well as praying for my own health to improve. God bless all, good luck to all who are playing pch. Sincerely, Lorraine W.

  3. Either amounts sound really overwhelming.

    A million a year? I mean, with that kind of money comes a lot of economic responsibility. You have to spend it, just hoarding it back seems like a hard blow to our fragile economy as it is.

    Not to say that I wouldn’t want the million for life. I can’t think of a single person on earth who would ever turn down that kind of financial security, but I could find no qualms about $5000 a week either.

    I mean, taxes excluded, that’s $240,000 a year! That’s more than what my father has made in a lifetime!

    I can’t imagine even having $5000 dollars in my hand, let alone getting it every week. I’ve been dirt poor my whole life, with my father slowly killing himself in the construction business while trying to support my handicapped mother my whole life. Just thinking about it is more than I can conceive, being financially secure, finally able to shake my stress and be happy for the first time.

    Ever since hearing about the contest, I’ve been slowly budgeting what I would do, ’cause, you know, a girl can dream.

    The first thing I would do is move us all into a better house, a rental. My 4 person family is currently sharing 2 bedrooms, one of which is inaccessible, and a bath. Because of constant moving and budget, my poor nephew has never had a room of his own, and he’s already 7. I’d want to get us space, cleanliness, and someplace closer to my father’s school.

    That’s another thing. I’d want to move us closer to his school. Years ago, my mother and father had a dream of opening a motorcycle shop together. It was one of those intimate things that they had shared that I had always admired. But after my mother died, my father gave up.

    After about 6 years now, I’ve finally been able to convince him to fallow his dream, and he’s in school now to be a Harley Mechanic. I’m so proud of him, strait A’s, something he never got in highscool, is such a moral and confidence boost on him, but the drive is so, so hard on him and his failing body, which has been giving up on him after years of hard, menial labor. I want to get him the jeep he’s been pining for and movie closer to school, just to help out.

    It’s depressing, though to watch him stumble about in pain at 54. I’d get him the medical attention be both needs and deserves. With several heart attacks and diabetes that we can’t afford the medications for, as well as a broken tailbone that never healed, knowing that I could pay to take care of him like he really deserves would be the greatest gift I would ever receive.

    After taking care of housing and my father, I’d take care of my nephew. I’ve been caring for him since his birth, and so far he’s been left in want more than I am comfortable. I want all new cloths for him, new toys, better schools. I want to spoil him, just for a little while, like he should be.

    And my Aunt too. She moved in with my family to help out financially after her husband died. She’s not used to living as poorly as we have to, and it’s like it’s sucking the life out of her. I want to repay her every penny, fix p her poor car, and take her on a shopping spree she’ll never forget, to try and pay her back a little kindness.

    After the last year or so of my father’s schooling, I would have to move. That’s why I would choose a rental at first, for that freedom. I’d get my father his tools, the one’s he mentioned every single time he sees the package, and set him up somewhere where we all would be happy.

    I’d put my nephew in private school, and settle us all down someplace nice.

    That’s all I really want, someplace nice, where I don’t have to stress of be depressed, where I can forget that nearly every problem I’d had up till then could have been solved if we’d only had the money.

    It’d take time, and some budgeting, but I think once all that is said and done, after we’d done the necessary, then done the splurging, after we finally take my nephew to Disney world and pay off my sisters school loans, after we settle down and take a look at a new life where we are happy and healthy, maybe then I can figure out what I woudl do for myself.

    I don’t know, I think by then I’d be too content to care.

  4. If I were to win, it wouldn’t matter which prize I won. Our first goal is to pay off our student loans and credit cards. We also want to put a large chunk away for our children’s college educations – probably in the form of gold so whatever happens with our economy they always have that money for college. It’s been the dream of my husband and I to open a youth center where we live, offering free tutoring, clothing, safe haven, activities, etc. to the kids in our community. We also want to contribute to mission work overseas. Finally, we want to purchase a home large enough to take in and adopt kids who are presently in the foster care system. I can’t imagine how much we could do with either prize… how amazing would it be to finally have the finances to fund our dream of helping others…

  5. I don’t know what to expect, with all of the worthy causes that people have referred to above, but we have five children who would greatly benefit from some cash infusions in their life. My wife is a Pastor and would benefit a great deal from the money. I am a consultant who is involuntarily retired, thanks to the economy. Please help!

  6. I would love to win the $5,000.00 a week for life it would surely help to pay off all of my debts and I would be able to help my family out a little and I would also be able to take a trip that has been longed for a long time. I would also donate some money to the Heart Association and the American Diabetic Association here in Rhode Island
