Imagine sending a text message and being able to raise money for a great charity.
The good news is you do not have to dream this up. Kelly Rippa has teamed up with Electrolux for a "Text-a-Thon for a Cause" to support the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund (OCRF). When I was asked by Mom Central to spread the word about this fabulous campaign, which started on September 9 and continues all month long, I immediately agreed to help out. Here is more information:
Today, Electrolux and Kelly Ripa are kicking off a unique “Text-a-Thon for a Cause” to support the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund (OCRF). 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. Also, each day you log on to the Web site, you are entered for a chance to win a luxury frontload washer and dryer from Electrolux in Turquoise Sky, the color of ovarian cancer awareness. And don’t forget about the Electrolux washer and dryer in Turquoise Sky for giveaway on the Mom Central site!
During September, visitors to Kelly Confidential can also help spread awareness for this important 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 Ripa; 100% of the proceeds from the sale of the T-shirts will go to OCRF.
Please help this worthwhile cause and head over to the website to gather more information about this great new project between Electrolux and Kelly Rippa. I already sent out a Virtual T-Shirt to some friends today to get out the word about this project.
For some additional information about the cause, here is a PSA that Kelly Ripa created about the campaign:
I hope that you will text and/or create a virtual T-Shirt in support of this wonderful cause. Also, be sure to head over to Mom Central to enter for a chance to win an Electrolux Turquoise Sky Washer & Dryer.
Disclosure: I wrote this review while participating in a blog tour campaign by Mom Central on behalf of Electrolux and received a gift certificate to thank me for taking the time to participate.
