How sweet it is: Kelly Ripa and Electrolux team up to help the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund

Hi friends! I am sure by now you have heard the buzz on the circuit about the lovely Kelly Ripa and Electrolux teaming up to raise more than $500,000 to support a virtual bake sale which will raise money for the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund (OCRF). For every virtual cupcake sent from the Electrolux site, $1.00 will be donated to OCRF with a minimum of $25,000 and a maximum of $30,000 when a virtual cupcake is sent to a friend. Electrolux is proud to support The Ovarian Cancer Research Fund.

When you make your cupcake you can choose a variety of flavors from favorites like carrot cake and classic yellow to German chocolate, devil's food cake and angel food cake. You can pick frosting flavors like buttercreams and fondants, sprinkle different toppings on your cupcake, add candles, select a variety of baking cup designs and then personalize your cupcake for an extra special touch! It really is a fun way to raise money for a worthy cause. Click here to register and send your cupcake now! It's fast, it's fun and most of all, you are helping fund a research program to find a cure for ovarian cancer!

Cupcakes can do that!

The benefit to registering on the Electrolux site, is that when you log on every day and send a virtual cupcake you are automatically entered for a chance to win a new Red Hot Red Washer and Dryer from Electrolux. I don't know about you, but I have seen the commercial when Kelly Ripa rushes through her house multi-tasking after doing laundry and putting it away... and let me just say if she can do that, in heels! I want to win that washer and dryer and do that too, looking that cute!

And finally, because you know how much of an advcoate I am about cancer research after my own skin cancer troubles; you can also support research by purchasing a shirt Kelly has designed. A really sweet "wear your heart on your sleeve" T-shirt which can be purchased here. Kelly Ripa cares so passionately about raising funds to help fight ovarian cancer she helped design this new limited edition T-shirt, especially for Valentine’s Day. Her hope is that everyone joins her as she “wears her heart on her sleeve” to help raise awareness of this important cause. This beautifully designed, premium cotton T-shirt is available in fitted or relaxed fit. Quantities are limited so order soon. Purchase one now.

My hope is you and those closest to you always have good health. I am delighted to see a celebrity dedicated to using her influence to support a very worthwhile cause. You never know when a sudden illness will strike and we should never take our health for granted. Make someone's day a little sweeter and register to send your cupcake today while helping to support The Ovarian Cancer Research Fund!

Best!
