One of the most iconic signs of summer just went virtual. Electrolux and Kelly Ripa are encouraging Americans to open a virtual lemonade stand to help raise funds and awareness for Ovarian Cancer this month.
Ripa was spotted in Central Park on Monday, serving cool glasses of lemonade to passersby from a stand featuring Electrolux’s elegant new French Door Refrigerator. The lemonade stand was built to generate awareness for The Ovarian Cancer Research Fund (OCRF), a cause important to Kelly and women everywhere.
You can set up your virtual lemonade stand, and help fund a cure, too.
This summer, exclusively at electroluxappliances.com, people can design and open their own virtual lemonade stands and even pick the flavors of lemonade they want to feature from Raspberry Mint to Citrus Twist. For every stand opened, Electrolux will donate $1 to OCRF as part of its $500,000 commitment to help fight ovarian cancer. In addition, participants can help the cause even more by selling virtual glasses of lemonade to their friends and family. 100 percent of the proceeds will go to OCRF.
â€˜I have such wonderful memories of opening my first lemonade stand and the sense of pride I felt when I sold my first glass,â€™ said Ripa. â€˜Now, there’s a way to recapture that feeling while raising funds for a great organization. What a cool initiative for an even cooler cause.â€™ You can learn more about it at Kelly’s website, www.kelly-confidential.com.
