There's no better feeling than knowing that you are working for a good cause. But, admittedly, getting involved in a major fundraising effort can be a daunting task. Now, thanks to Electrolux appliances, you can help raise funds for the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund without leaving the comfort of your home. Ahh, you've got to love technology.

Kelly Ripa's Virtual Lemonade Stand
Electrolux and celeb spokesperson Kelly Ripa are encouraging Americans to open a virtual lemonade stand to help raise funds and awareness for the fight against ovarian cancer this summer. I know what you're thinking... a "virtual" lemonade stand? Actually, the whole campaign is adorable. I had the opportunity to talk with Kelly Ripa yesterday just after she helped to launch the new campaign. Definitely go check out the video-- Kelly was fabulous and had great stories about the launch, which included setting up a real lemonade stand in New York City's Central Park.

To get involved with this great cause, all you have to do is head over to Kelly-Confidential.com and open your virtual lemonade stand by creating an account and customizing your stand-- from color scheme to types of lemonade to sell. Then, invite your friends and family to stop by. You can check out the official Stiletto Jungle Virtual Lemonade Stand here. Feel free to drop a donation while you're there!

Electrolux French Door Refrigerator
Your virtual lemonade stand helps to raise funds in a couple ways. For every stand opened, Electrolux will donate $1 to OCRF as part of its $500,000 commitment to help fight ovarian cancer. In addition, you can help the cause even more by selling virtual glasses of lemonade to your friends and family. 100 percent of the proceeds will go to OCRF.

But, it gets better. To, um, sweeten the deal, Electrolux is giving away one of their gorgeous refrigerators to a participant in the campaign. For opening a stand and everyday you log on and visit your stand, you’ll be entered for a chance to win a new French Door Refrigerator with a Perfect Temp Drawer™ from Electrolux. When people donate to your stand, they will also have a chance to win.

As I'm sure all of you super social Stiletto Jungle girls will appreciate, the French Door Refrigerator is loaded with features that make it the refrigerator for entertaining. The Perfect Temp Drawer™ provides a bunch of choices – from White/Sparkling Wine, Snacks or even Chilled Beer – to store or serve whatever you want at the ideal temperature. And with Perfect Ice™, you’ll get twice the ice as any refrigerator ice maker in a new drink-friendly shape – so there’s always plenty of ice on hand for your summer parties. Seriously, I could plan an entire party around trying to use all of the different features.

So, a great cause, a fun campaign and the chance to win a fabulous Electrolux appliance. What are you waiting for? It's time to open your lemonade stand!
