I think everyone knows the name Publishers Clearing House, right? I know that for me, when I hear those words, I think of a big white van pulling up to the door, balloons, streamers and a gigantic check! What many don't know is that Publishers Clearing House is also known for making dreams come true for charities and individuals through their annual Give Back Event on the Publishers Clearing House Facebook Fan Page!
This is the third year that Publishers Clearing House has hosted the Give Back Event and it couldn't be any easier for fans to vote for their favorite featured charity! Having given away $100,000 last year, Publishers Clearing House is back at it this year, having selected USO, ASPCA and St. Jude as the featured charities.
St. Jude Children's Research Hospital aims to advance cures and means of prevention for children battling cancer and other pediatric catastrophic diseases through research and treatment.
The USO is a nonprofit, nonpolitical organization that provides programs, services and live entertainment to United States troops and their families.
The Founded in 1866, the ASPCA® is an animal welfare organization that strives to spread awareness about the prevention of cruelty to animals.
The Give Back Event works by allowing Facebook users to vote daily for their favorite charity - or you can even vote for different charities each day!
The Give Back Event runs for four weeks, and at the end of the event, the charity with the most votes wins a donation of $50,000! Of course, the runner ups also win; the charity in second place wins $35,000 and the charity that comes in third place wins $25,000!
I was pretty conflicted about which charity to vote for. I support the ASPCA AND St. Jude's, but I know that St. Jude's has a lot of supporters out there already. The animals helped by the ASPCA? Not so much. I love animals and would love to see the ASPCA win the $50,000 prize - the shelters helped by the ASPCA can use all of the help they can get!
Fans of the Publishers Clearing House Facebook page will be able to "share" the Give Back charity program with their Facebook friends! You'll want to share for two reasons: to help your favorite charity get more votes and...because fans who vote for their favorite charity also have an opportunity to win prizes for themselves! Each time someone votes for a charity, an entry goes towards a SuperPrize® and the Give Back Exclusive Prize, where three $5,000 prizes will be awarded.
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!
