Get Cool for a Cause with Kelly Ripa & Electrolux: Lemonade Stands for Ovarian Cancer Research!

Hi friends! Kelly Ripa and Electrolux are at it once again with a really sweet way to make money for the Ovarian Cancer research Fund. When you open a lemonade stand, Electrolux will donate $1 to the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund* to support research to find a cure, and you will be entered for a chance to win a new French Door Refrigerator with Perfect Temp Drawer™ from Electrolux - perfect for summer entertaining.

Plus, you can sell virtual glasses of lemonade to your friends to raise even more funds for this important cause. There are some really delicious flavors to choose from, like Marmalade Lemoanade, Rosemary Watermelon Lemonade, Raspberry Meyer Lemonade, Citrus Lemonade, or my favorite Sparkling Ginger Lemonade!
*As part of its lemonade stand campaign, for each stand opened, Electrolux will donate $1 to OCRF (with a minimum of 10k and a maximum of 15k).
Check out my stand here or open your own by clicking here! Don't forget to tell your friends about it by emailing them, sharing it on Facebook, Stumble it!, Tweet it! and of course, blogging!

Drink up! It's a great day for lemonade!

Best!
