Spread the Awareness: Kelly Ripa's Text-A-Thon for a Cause

September is Ovarian Cancer Awareness month! Electrolux and Kelly Ripa are launching an exciting campaign that utilizes a form of communication that many of us use every day - texting! During September, Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month, Electrolux and Kelly are holding a "Text-a-Thon for a Cause" to help raise support for the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund whose mission is to fund research to find a method of early detection and ultimately a cure for ovarian cancer.

Throughout September, you can donate $5 to the cause by texting "KELLY" to 85944 from your mobile phones (standard text messaging rates apply) - or logging on to Also during September, visitors to Kelly Confidential can 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. Fashion-forward Moms 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.

But here's the best part, every time you log on to the web site, you'll be entered for a chance to win an amazing luxury front load washer and dryer from Electrolux in Turquoise Sky, the color inspired by the teal ribbon of ovarian cancer awareness.

While you're at it, check out Kelly Ripa's PSA and help spread the awareness.

I just had a full hysterectomy because we thought I had ovarian cancer. Thankfully, I'm okay but lost my grandmother to the disease. Great post!
