Electrolux Virtual Lemonade Stand Supports the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund! (and Giveaway!)

I remember being a kid and standing in front of my house with a metal card table and a folding chair with cardboard signs screaming, "LEMONADE FOR SALE!" at the beach goers driving down the block. The benefit of living a block and a half from the water, was that the people usually stopped on their way to and from the beach or ferry! Ah the memories!
Electrolux Lemonade Stand
Just in time for the warm weather, Electrolux and Kelly Ripa are kicking off their Virtual Lemonade Stand campaign to drive awareness and raise funds for the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund. Starting this month, you can visit electroluxappliances.com to design and open your own virtual lemonade stand and even pick the flavors of lemonade you want to feature at your stand, like Sparkling Ginger or Rosemary Watermelon.

For every stand opened, Electrolux will donate $1 to the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund (OCRF). In addition, you can help the cause even more by buying and sending virtual glasses of lemonade to your friends and family, with 100% of the proceeds benefiting OCRF. This is a great way to celebrate the beginning of summer, let friends know you’re thinking of them, and support a great cause.

Even better, just for opening your stand, and then again every day that you log in and visit your stand, you will be entered to win a new French Door Refrigerator from Electrolux – perfect for storing your own pitchers of lemonade. When others donate to your stand, they will also have a chance to win. (What I would do for this fridge!)

The new French Door Refrigerator by Electrolux has some cool new features that make it a great refrigerator for entertaining. There is the Perfect Temp Drawer™, which provides storage for any number of items that you want to keep at the ideal temperature. It comes with 9 preset selections including White/Sparkling Wine, Fish/Shellfish, Snacks and Chilled Beer, plus three customizable 'My Favorites', giving you an array of choices to store or serve whatever you want at the "Perfect Temp". It’s also a large enough refrigerator to store everything from party platters to juice boxes.. you'd never have another squashed juice box again! The French Door Refrigerator also offers double the ice so there is always enough ice on hand to fill your pitchers of lemonade, and not run out in the middle of a party!

In addition, Mom Central will be giving away one French Door Refrigerator to a member of our community! To enter, simply go to momcentral.com and (1) tell them about the lemonade stand you designed on the Electrolux site and which flavors you are ‘selling’ and (2) share your own “summer entertaining” tips/ideas. Mom Central will pick one lucky winner in a random drawing from all entries received!

Feel like buying a glass of Lemonade? Click on either of the two images to bring you to my Virtual Lemonade Stand and support the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund! Every dollar makes a difference!
