September is Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month, a disease that affects thousands of women each year. To aid the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund (OCRF) in finding a cure and promoting early detection, Electrolux and Kelly Ripa are sponsoring a “Text-a-Thon for a Cause” campaign. Moms can donate $5 to the cause by texting “KELLY” to 85944 from their mobile phones (standard text messaging rates apply) or by logging on to www.kelly-confidential.com. For each day that you log on to the Web site, you are entered for a chance to win a luxury front-load washer and dryer from Electrolux in Turquoise Sky, the color of ovarian cancer awareness. Here's a video from Kelly explaining how you can help:
Also during September, visitors to Kelly Confidential can help spread awareness for this important cause by sending a “virtual T-shirt” to a friend. For every “T-mail” you send, Electrolux will donate $1 to the OCRF. You can also purchase a limited-edition T-shirt designed by Kelly Ripa, and 100% of the proceeds from the sale of the T-shirts will go to OCRF.
Mom Central also has an Electrolux washer and dryer in Turquoise Sky to give away!* To enter to win, simply go to www.momcentral.com/reviews/win-a-turquoise-sky-washer-and-dryer-from-electrolux.html and tell them how you participated in the Electrolux campaign. Did you text? Send a virtual tee? Mom Central will pick one lucky winner in a random drawing from all entries received.
I encourage you to text and/or visit Kelly Confidential today. These are simple but effective ways to support a cause that has a tremendous impact on women and their families. Please help out today!
