Send a Cupcake, Support Cancer Research

It is always sad to lose a grandparent, even one who wasn't particularly cuddly or didn't like baking cookies with you. That is why, when my grandmother died of ovarian cancer, it affected me. She wasn't all hugs and roses, but I still missed her. I was in 9th grade when she died and I wrote a research paper about the different kinds and stages of ovarian cancer and ways for it to be cured.

I was glad to hear that there is still important research going on today in the battle against ovarian cancer. Electrolux Appliances has even started a new campaign to raise $500,000 for ovarian cancer research.

The Electrolux campaign is called "Wear Your Heart on Your Sleeve," )something I generally do anyway). And you know their favorite spokesperson, Kelly Ripa had to get in on the fund raising. She designed cool shirt to raise money.

So, what does all of this mean for you?

Well, if you don't want to spend $29.95 on the shirt, how about sending someone a virtual cupcake for free? You get to choose the cake and frosting flavors, as well as the decorative elements. (Like my sparkler?)

This is a charitable social media campaign in which $1 will be donated to the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund as part of Electrolux's half-million dollar commitment to support this worthy cause.

Even better, everyone who sends a virtual cupcake will be entered for a chance to win the newest Elextrolux front-load washer and dryer.
