Give money to a worthy cause without dipping into your own pocket by playing the Publishers Clearing House (PCH) promotion known as The Give Back on Facebook. That's what the sweepstakes company's fans did and as a result $25,000 was just given to the USO Warrior and Family Center at Fort Belvoir, Va. this month based upon this Jan. 24 PCH Blog post by Sarah S.
United Services Organizations (USO) Vice President of Operations Glenn Welling was on hand to accept the money on behalf of the military families who will benefit from this large donation. And he was touched that Americans voted the USO Warrior and Family Care as one of the organizations deserving of their support.
To be recognized by the Americans who went online each day (and voted for us) is awesome. For 73 years the USO has been the connection between American and her military and donations like this one will allow us to continue doing...," Welling said.
And what they do is phenomenal, providing support and care for the wounded, ill or injured soldiers of our nation. But they also support the soldier's family and caregivers by coming alongside them and doing what they can to help each military man and woman get back to a full and rewarding life.
And Publishers Clearing House fans voted to give them $25,000 to help the worthy organization to keep doing what they do. And if you want to be able to help select next years charity organization winners in the PCH Give Back Facebook promotion be sure to like them on the social media site today, so you will get notified when this opportunity occurs again. After all, the family or pet you help may be your own, since the two other winning charities this year were St. Jude Children's Research Hospital and the ASPCA, the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.
