PCH GIVES BACK — TO ST. JUDE CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL®

St. Jude Children's Research Hospital

The PCH Prize Patrol just had the thrilling experience of visiting Memphis’ St. Jude Children’s Hospital®, which is a worldwide leader in researching, treating and curing children with cancer and other deadly diseases.   While there, we presented a Give Back award for $50,000 to the hospital, which was selected by huge numbers of PCH fans on Facebook and selected by voters as a “favorite.”

Publishers Clearing House and St. Jude Children's Research Hospital

On award day, the staff of St. Jude welcomed the Prize Patrol as enthusiastically as if they were “as seen on TV” PCH Sweepstakes winners. Yes, the weather was rainy and raw, but the people at the entrance gave us the same warm, happy greeting they give to everyone who comes there – especially to the children who come with their families for treatment.

One has to visit the hospital in person to appreciate fully what makes St. Jude such a remarkable institution – and so unlike hospitals most people know.  Every room and corridor is colorfully decorated to help a young patient feel comfortable, warm and happy. The furniture is kid-friendly, and families with youngsters undergoing treatment live in environments that feel like home.  When one sees “live” characters from children’s books, TV and movies entertaining the patients, you could be excused from thinking you were in a world-famous theme park.

St. Jude

PCH St. Jude trip

Of course, St. Jude is a state-of-the art medical and research facility.  We received a thorough tour that helped us appreciate how research and treatment protocols developed at St. Jude have increased the survival rate of the most common form of childhood cancer from four percent in 1962 to 94 percent today!  We were told of how St. Jude got started more than 50 years ago through a promise made by founder Danny Thomas.

No family ever pays St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing and food – or anything.  With daily operating costs of $1.9 million, St. Jude relies primarily on public and corporate donors – a large group that Publishers Clearing House is proud to join.

While PCH has always recognized that there are lots of winners out there beyond sweepstakes winners, athletes, performers and officials, we especially salute the unsung heroes who unselfishly serve their communities and the celebrated champions like St. Jude.

Thank you, St. Jude, for your inspiring work. And thanks to all you fans who participated in The Give Back at Publishers Clearing House. We couldn’t have done it without you.

Good day! I know this is kinda off topic nevertheless I’d
figured I’d ask. Would you be interested in exchanging links or maybe guest authoring a blog article or vice-versa?
My site discusses a lot of the same subjects as yours and I
believe we could greatly benefit from each other.

If you happen to be interested feel free to shoot me an email.
I look forward to hearing from you! Excellent blog by

Too often we underestimate the power of giving, the power of a touch a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around,I always loved this quote I expect to pass through life but once if therefore there be a kindness i can show, or any good thing i can do to any fellow being, let me do it now and not defer from it as i shall not pass this way again:Wonderful words PCH and all the people behind the curtain that made PCH what it is God Bless you all!!!!!
