Did you know that September is Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month? Electrolux has teamed with Kelly Ripa on a brand new campaign that has launched just today to help find a cure for this insidious disease.
"Text-a-Thon for a Cause" allows you to donate $5 to the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund (OCRF) by texting "KELLY" to 85944 from your mobile phone (standard text messaging rates apply). Alternately, you can log onto Kelly Confidential.
In addition to supporting ovarian cancer research, for each day you log on to Kelly Confidential, you'll be entered to win a luxury frontload washer and dryer from Electrolux in Turquoise Sky, the color of ovarian cancer awareness. (You can also enter to win the set from Mom Central.)
For the month of September, you can also help the cause by sending a virtual t-shirt to a friend. For every virtual T-shirt sent, Electrolux will donate $1 to the OCRF. You can also purchase a limited edition T-shirt designed by Kelly Ripa. 100% of the proceeds from the sale of the T-shirts will go to OCRF.
I've lost two friends to ovarian cancer, so this cause is close to my heart. Hear what Kelly has to say about this important mission below:
Let's get those phones out and start texting for the cause!
