Sharing the Joy winner chooses charity to receive $500 gift card

Big Lots winner chooses Cincinnati Children's Hospital for a $500 gift card (WKRC)

CINCINNATI (WKRC) - Local 12 has made several visits to local Big Lots stores to spread holiday cheer and give away $500 shopping sprees.

Now Local 12 and Big Lots are giving away another gift card. This time the $500 winner got to give a second gift card in the same amount to a local charity. The winner, to be named Thursday, chose Cincinnati Children's Hospital.

Children's Hospital is a place that is close to her heart. Her young daughter received care at the hospital while battling ovarian cancer.

A donation like this can go a long way. "We can do so many things with this," said Children's donor relations coordinator Anna Kuertz. "We can either purchase toys from the store, from Big Lots itself. We can purpose other gift cards that can be used as incentives for our patients or to purchase further gifts that can be used during the holidays or throughout the year."

While the other winners were chosen randomly, Thursday's winner was chosen from more than 200 applicants.

The shopping spree giveaway is sponsored by Big Lots
