Virtual Lemonade Stand

Yesterday, I had the chance to chat with Kelly Ripa over skype. I'm not even kidding. You can watch Kelly in the interview below or see the side-by-side interview here. (Sincere apologies for my tacky office location with pheasant wallpaper and also for sitting so close to the camera that my giant head is quite fearsome.)

Kelly was calling to get the word out about the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund (OCRF) — a cause she's supported for years and years and something that is near and dear to her heart. She had big news about a great fundraising opportunity going on: everytime someone opens a virtual lemonade stand, Electrolux will donate $1 to OCRF.

It's super easy to open the lemonade stand. I did it this morning and it took about 2 minutes. It didn't cost me anything and now I get to feel entitled for the rest of day due to my good works and contributions to society. : ) You can see my lemonade stand here.

Take a minute to go set up your own
virtual lemonade stand. You'll be glad you did. The whole thing is about as charming as fundraising gets. And. Everyone who participates is entered to win a shiny new french door refridgerator from Electrolux.

Also, I want to point out that in addition to being lovely and a great conversationalist, Kelly's arms are cut like superwoman.
