And have you heard of the Text-a-Thon for a Cause?

Kelly ConfidentialElectrolux and Kelly Ripa are again teaming up to raise ovarian cancer awareness. All you have to do is text “KELLY” to 85944 and $5 will go to the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund (normal texting rates may apply, and remember this is US -based).

Also if you register at Kelly’s website, every day you log on in September gives you another chance to win a front load washer and dryer in Turquoise Sky, the color inspired by teal, the symbolic color of ovarian cancer awareness.

Now, remember we’re just getting started with our ovarian cancer awareness campaign here. Come back Monday for the official announcement of this year’s O Foods Contest, which you’ll also find at Sara’s Ms Adventures in Italy and which will include even more fabulous prizes than last year.

Then stay tuned for:

Buon weekend a tutti–and start thinking about your O Foods recipes!

    Just donated my $5 🙂
    Is Electrolux going to match my five?
    I’m off to visit the site about that washer, but if I win it what will I do? It’s bigger than my apartment.

    I don’t think they match the donation–just donate the appliances. And speaking of donating the appliances, you could always donate them to a woman’s shelter if you win 😀
