Editorial: How would you like to win a wonderful new $365,000 dollar home, for just $100? No exaggeration. No gimmicks -- simply win a massive 4,400 square-foot house for a $100.

The St. Jude Dream Home Giveaway might be the best charitable cause in the country. St. Jude treats upwards of 260 children a day – children who are dealing with the most challenging diseases and their families never have to pay anything.

WTVM has been the proud sponsor for St. Jude for the past 11 years. Viewers who have brought tickets have helped us raise $6.9 million, and we greatly thank you.

The owner of the winning ticket gets possession of the new home here in Fortson, GA, but St. Jude wins big time as well.

You can buy a ticket for the drawing several ways: 

  •   Go to Dreamhome.org
  •   Call 1-800-383-9844
  •   Stop by Action Building and TruckStyles or Wade Cleaners
  •   Go to WTVM.com


The winner of the Dream Home will be selected in three months on April 22, 2012. There are additional prizes you can win, including the second-place prize – a shiny new Toyota Camry.

Even if you don't win, your $100 donation will go towards saving kids' lives and helping the families deal with their illnesses while staying at the hospital. 

General Manager Lee Brantley brings two editorials a week to WTVM. If you would like to respond to an editorial, e-mail your response to WTVM Editorial Committee or write to:
