    American Morning: Your questions

    I won a Million Dollars!



    I won $1,000,000 in 2005 in Alltel’s “Text to Win Million Dollar Dream Home Sweepstakes”. My family used that money to build a home that we are now giving away in an essay contest.

    In addition, 10% of the proceeds will go to Operation Hope, a non-profit food bank in my hometown of Spartanburg, S.C.  Operation Hope stands to receive $75,000, which is more than their annual budget. They are in hopes that this will allow them to expand their area of service.

    I am looking to get the word out about the contest. Any help you could offer would be greatly appreciated by so many.

    Below, please find the links to an article from August, 2005, when I won the Million, yesterday’s article about the contest, and our website. Please see attached photos.


    Thank you so much for your time.
