    I am entering this sweepstakes on my mothers behalf. At 22 years old, I have seen that hardships that my mother has had to endure, whether it be financial issues or health issues with my father. My family has been praying for a breakthrough and a healing and this $50,000 can be the start for my family. I would be completely selfless and give the money to my mother, she deserves a break and is in desperate need for a blessing.

    I would be sooo happy to pay off my bills, buy a tempurpedic adjustable bed and move to a better home!!

  8. Anita September 29, 2013 at 8:37 pm #

  13. Beverly September 29, 2013 at 9:02 pm #

  14. Jennifer September 29, 2013 at 9:05 pm #

    I would really love to win this last week in September. I really need the money to pay hospital bills that we have incurred since my husband was injured in a car accident on his way to work. There are several things that need to be fixed here in our home, but we don’t have the money to even think about repairs, as we are trying to maintain the monthly bills…this would really be a blessing!

  15. Diane Murray September 29, 2013 at 9:06 pm #

    I would love to replace my current windows with energy efficient windows throughout my house.

  16. Ebony Price-Lane September 29, 2013 at 9:08 pm #

    My thoughts are to pay off me and my husband’s debt and put a down payment on our dream home! This will help us get qualified for a mortgage. We need our own home ASAP! Tried on being denied for everything because of past mistakes. We Need A Fresh start!!! Give our children a hopeful future!!

    Thank you,

  17. brenda rogers September 29, 2013 at 9:08 pm #

    We would love to pay off our home and finish our bathroom makeover . I love HGTV so much. It not only inspires me but its amazing how beautiful the makeovers can be. Having a home can be a great blessing no matter the size.

  20. Cynthia Keys September 29, 2013 at 9:15 pm #

    With this money I could make a big difference on how we live because I would be able to give my 93 year old mother the gift of her dreams and that is whatever she wants.

  21. Tracey September 29, 2013 at 9:16 pm #

    I am an RN who has become very ill and my husband left me. I sold out my half of the house to him in the divorce. I make a good income on disability retirement . I loved caring for people that I can no longer do, it was my live. Now I’m ill and I plan buying a small house for me and my pets until the time comes that I can’t battle this illness any longer. If I won the 50, 000 I would use it for a down payment on my little dream house with a picket fence for my dogs and I to live out the rest of our lives. It would be a dream come true. The50,000 would .and it so much easier to find that house of my dreams.

  22. Wendy September 29, 2013 at 9:16 pm #

    My husband and I really need this money.He is a school teacher and the only one
    working in our home since December 2012. I lost my job 5 days before christmas
    and I was 5 mths pregnant with our third child. If that wasn’t enough, I went into labor
    9wks early, so I ended up in the hospital for 3wks and our baby boy was in the NICU
    for 1mth. So, needless to say we have some hefty hospital bills to pay off, we are behind
    on our mortgage, and are in need of a newer vehicle as the best one we have is a 2004.
    So yes, $50,000 would really, really help us out right now.

  23. Eva Middleton September 29, 2013 at 9:19 pm #

    When I win, I plan to give the Lord His and then use most of it as a down payment on my first home, that I am exited about! I thank you in advance for my 50,000 dollars. May God bless you for doing the giveaways.

  24. Princess Steward September 29, 2013 at 9:21 pm #

    My mom has been diagnosed with Alzheimers so I have acquired my childhood home. It is very outdated and unsafe for her mobility. I would spend the money updating the appliances and layout so it is a safe haven for her. I would also righten the home so that once again it was full of beauty and life and not so much sadness. I am in desperate need of a home makeover so that I want to come home again and enjoy my house. I want it to feel like home again and with your help, I lnow it’s possible.

  25. Tracey September 29, 2013 at 9:32 pm #

    I am a RN who has become very ill and would love this money to buy my dream single level house, so it would be easier for me and I would a fenced in yard for my dogs. The 50,000 would be a great down payment. It would be a dream come true. I watch hgtv every day. Thanks for chance

  26. Waldina September 29, 2013 at 9:33 pm #

    Winning will help me to do several needed major repairs around the house basement, kitchen, bathroom!!!! It we really help us right now.

  27. Kate Daly September 29, 2013 at 9:33 pm #

    Thanks for this opptunity

  28. Sharon Shaver September 29, 2013 at 9:40 pm #



    Would love to be able to pay off some bills and update my house. Thx.

  29. Kara September 29, 2013 at 9:44 pm #

    My family and I, with the help of my parents just bought a small fixer-upper after a year of living with my husband’s mom. The glitch is it has no flooring, the two bathrooms need to be re-done and the kitchen is unusable as it stands now. We would love to move in but in order for it to be livable we have to save little by little to do these projects. This prize money would be just what we need to get the work done and be moved in by Christmas. Lord willing:)

  30. Dees September 29, 2013 at 9:57 pm #

    I would use the money to remodel my home to accomodate our handicap son who is not able to walk, talk or take care of himself. We are trying to keep him in our home rather than be put in a facility. I would also pay on some debts.

  31. Margaret Glazier September 29, 2013 at 10:20 pm #

    My kitchen and living rooms are in desperate need of updating. The wall -to -wall carpeting in the LR and the kitchen flooring are 36 years old and need to go.!! A little paint would also go a long way. My husband can’t do anything any more due to illness[es] so I could definitely use some help. Thanks Margaret.

  32. Wendy Ward September 29, 2013 at 10:22 pm #

    Please help a First Time Homebuyer!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I entered to win the $50,000 because I am 27 years old and my boyfriend and I purchased our first home about 6 months ago…you never know how much stuff you have to buy until you move out of your parents house with one room into a 3-bedroom townhome with a basement :-) We have completed our master bedroom and basement but there is so much more to do. Money disappears fast and bill start coming in quickly. This money would help us add some furniture to our home, update our kitchen, and change the flooring. Plus I know we plan on getting married soon, and this money for the home would help us with putting money aside for a wedding and starting our future together!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  33. syl September 29, 2013 at 10:41 pm #

    Would love and appreciate any money to help remodel my 35 year old house that has been neglected due to hard times . Grandkids are starting to pop up and would love a clean, safe environment to enjoy my family, and watch HGTV during my “me time”

  34. Craig September 29, 2013 at 11:06 pm #

  35. Stacy Linnecke September 29, 2013 at 11:08 pm #

    I love my house and $50,000 would allow me to love my house even more!! I love HGTV and would love the opportunity to use some of the great ideas shown in the shows in my own home.

    Would love to replace the very old windows in our very old house and put siding on it too, and tear off the brick porch steps that have crumbled away. my 60′s kitchen needs to go as the flooring has rotted away and their is not much kitchen counter space to work on. So very many more projects to do on our house to mention here. Have put all this on hold for 31 years due to son born with heart condition. Thank you for allowing all of us a chance to be a part of this fun sweepstakes!! Please keep doing it, it is fun to watch the programs also!

    Quicken Loans :)

  43. Rebecca September 30, 2013 at 12:15 am #

    My home is in need of several updates.I would first start with window replacement, then move on to replacing the HVAC unit. Anything left would go into a kitchen update that is so badly needed. Thank you Quicken loans!

  44. Valarie September 30, 2013 at 12:18 am #

    It would be totally exciting for my family of five to win this Awesome prize. We are in desperate need of new furniture for our new home as we don’t have any at the moment, we are sleeping on air mattresses, LoL We had to sell everything for the big move from WA to CA and after we furnish our house. I would love take my family to Universal Studios, CA. My husband and youngest boy my 6yr old have never been. It would be a much needed family vacation. Good Luck To All. :)

  45. Dan September 30, 2013 at 1:19 am #

    I would Love to WIN because there are sooo many ways that money could help my family. We have just put so many things on hold because of financial reasons and just being able to do a couple of them for my four little adorable kids would be just wonderful! I would love to surprise my kids with a puppy for x-mas this year and sign my son up for baseball! Got my fingers crossed!!

  46. Cynthia Greenwood September 30, 2013 at 1:48 am #

    My boyfriend and I have been searching for a semi fixer in our neighborhood for the past three years. I work at a local hardware store and grew up wanting to be a “house” architect. I am a huge DIY’er, and since I sarted watching HGTV almost everynight (approximately for 5-6 hours at least 4-5 nights a week) I have started pursuing interior design and landscaping design at the academy of art. In our neighborhood renting is at least 2x a current mortgage rate for this area. Houses are purchased from 60-140k. Currently I am paying my landlords mortgage x2.5. We can no longer afford to keep this up and need a place to call our own. We would use 50k for a first time purchase of our very own home. It would enable me to afford my long time dreams and go to school, and using my home as my canvas. I would also love to put some aside to help my mom and dad fix a few issues in the home I grew up in. They have been extremely helpful to me and my boyfriend (tub and toilet are just about to fall through thier floor). I have thought about entering these sweepstakes a long time, good luck everyone! Everyone deserves a nice break in this grind we call life!

  47. Paulina September 30, 2013 at 2:51 am #

    I will use part of the money to pay for the move -in deposit for a rental home. The rest of mono ey will be used to furnish the place. Thank you.

  48. Rose September 29,2013 11:50 pm September 30, 2013 at 2:57 am #

    We would love to have extra money to redo our kitchen floor, and
    after reading some of the comments, I wish I had more money to give others their wishes.

  49. Shirley Dillon September 30, 2013 at 3:32 am #

    I need the money make my master bed & bathroom bigger

  50. Shirley Dillon September 30, 2013 at 3:34 am #

    I need the money to work on my master bed room & bathroom and some more work around my home

  51. Keisha Payton September 30, 2013 at 9:36 am #

    I would love to win this sweepstakes!!!! My husband and I bought a house that was build in the 60′s and would love to update our house. If I win the sweepstakes I would remodel my kitchen and bathroom. I would also knock down the wall in my living room to create an open concept and give the backyard a makeover.

  52. Lori September 30, 2013 at 10:03 am #

    We have a home that was built in the 70′s by someone who tried to do it all himself. Whole house needs to be rewired (hazardous…), kitchen in baaaaad shape, very small, need an addition with same floor laundry. Medical issues which make it difficult for me to go up & down the stairs to the basement. Have lived in this house for 23 years and don’t see us moving anytime soon…so it would be nice to update our forever home before we’re too old to do it…just shipped our oldest off to the Navy & youngest graduating this year… good time to complete a project…

    Thank you for your consideration! :)

  53. Paula September 30, 2013 at 11:04 am #

    If I was lucky enough to win I would renew my wedding vows and celebrate!! Then of course do all of the other necessary things like pay off bills and home repairs. I am still waiting for a reason to run down my street naked and screaming – still just kidding!!!! HGTV and Quicken Loans make my dreams come true. I will kiss the tv every time your on it!

  54. Cynthia C September 30, 2013 at 12:38 pm #

    I turn 50 in December and my house turns 50 in January, and it needs $50k worth of repairs and updates. I could use a few too. :)

  55. Kendra September 30, 2013 at 1:25 pm #

    Winning this money would be a dream come true for my family and I. The first thing I would do is give my titles and offering. Next, I would finally be able to afford providing my father with a headstone he truly deserve and more. After losing him (almost 4 years ago on my 2 children birthday) has been extremely hard. Being able to move on haven’t been easy but a long journey ahead. After struggling for a long period of trails and tribulations, I believe my blessings will arrive sooner rather than later. However, winning 50,000 will allow me to provide addition coverage for my disabled children, consolidate debt, and improve the safety of the home I’m living in for my family. If I wish for nothing more, I wish to be able to give my children what they truly deserve.

  56. Juston Swift September 30, 2013 at 9:59 pm #

    If I were to win, I would fix up my mothers house that has been in the family for decades. My mother recently passed away in July of this year. She had to move out of the house because of her health and because the house was deteriorating. My mom kept saying that she wanted to go back home before she passed. It hurts me to know that she was never able to make it back home. I feel like it is my duty to restore that house. There will always be a piece of my mother in that house. It would really hurt me to see the house get demolished. If I had any leftover money after that I would spend it on my three sons. I am a single father of three boys. We could surely use the money.

  57. Tonya December 3, 2013 at 12:55 pm #

    I pray to the lord I win this money. I’m a single parent of two and my kitchen is
    so out dated I hate it. I try painting the cabinets and put new laminated
    Floor kitchen looks like, the seventies I have paneling walls in the kitchen.
    I really try.but its hard when you don, t have anything to put into it.

  58. Tracy butler December 10, 2013 at 8:53 pm #

    Love this station

  59. Noah Gracely December 28, 2013 at 7:45 am #
