A Helping Handheld

We all know that October is breast cancer awareness month - the pink ribbons have become the perfect symbol and reminder.  But how many of us know that September is ovarian cancer awareness month?  Today's Candy from DailyCandy Everywhere edition is reminding us about the importance of ovarian cancer and encouraging us to support the cause.  Electrolux has teamed up with Kelly Ripa for Electrolux and Kelly Ripa’s Text-a-Thon for a Cause.  Making just a $5 donation toward ovarian cancer research by texting the word KELLY to 85944.*  Have no fear - if you are "textually challenged" you can log on to and show your support in just a few clicks.  Each day you log on, whether you donate or not), you’ll be entered for a chance to win a luxury Electrolux front load washer and dryer in Turquoise Sky, the color inspired by the ribbon of ovarian cancer awareness.  So let's all spread the word and start texting to support ovarian cancer research. You'll be glad you did.
