Everyone knows that Publishers Clearing House awards individual winners with larger-than-life checks, but did you also know that PCH is also charitable? Donating $100,000 to charity through its Give Back program just last year.
Publishers Clearing House’s 2013 Give Back program is now live on its Facebook page, and through the program fans can vote for their favorite charity to be awarded its share of more than $100,000.
This year fans can choose between three important charities:
- USO – The USO lifts the spirits of America’s troops, their families, our wounded warriors and their families and the families of the fallen. The USO is a private, non-profit 501(C)3 organization.
- ASPCA – The mission of the ASPCA, as stated by Henry Bergh in 1866, is “to provide effective means for the prevention of cruelty to animals throughout the United States.”
- St. Jude – The mission of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is to find cures and save children. St. Jude opened in 1962 and was founded by the late entertainer Danny Thomas, who believed that no child should die in the dawn of life.
Voting is easy, and fans can vote for a charity once a day through November 25. The charity with the most votes at the end of the four weeks promotion period will be given $50,000. But all three charities will win! The second place charity will receive $35,000 and the third place organization will receive $25,000.
So even while you are voting for the charity that is nearest and dearest to your heart, you can feel good knowing that all three charities will walk away with at least 25,000 to serve their cause.
As an added bonus, every time you vote for the charity of your choice, you will be entered to win $5,000.
With three great charities to choose from it is hard to pick one. But ultimately I decide to vote for St. Jude because as a mom with two healthy children I can’t imagine the pain of having a sick child. Hopefully that is something I will never face, but today my vote helped support those moms (and dads).
So go ahead, vote for the charity of your choice and enter yourself to win $5,000.
Publishers Clearing House is hosting the 3rd annual Give Back charity event! This year fans can vote for St Jude Childrens Research Hospital, The ASPCA, or the USO to receive a combined $100,000 in charitable donations! Plus three lucky voters will win $5000 from Publishers Clearing House!
