Electrolux Lemonade Stands

Remember setting up a lemonade stand in your neighborhood? I do. I never sold much, but it was a fun way to spend an afternoon! Well, now we have the Virtual Lemonade Stand by Electrolux and Kelly Ripa. The Virtual Lemonade Stand campaign raises funds for Ovarian Cancer Research. Starting this month, you can visit to design and open your own virtual lemonade stand. You can even pick the flavors of lemonade you want to feature at your stand, like raspberry or citrus.

For every lemonade stand opened, Electrolux will donate $1 to the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund (OCRF). You can help the cause even more by buying and sending virtual glasses of lemonade to your friends and family! 100% of the proceeds benefit OCRF. Ovarian Cancer is a very nasty cancer and we need to find a way to beat it!

Just for opening your stand, and then again every day that you log in and visit your stand, you will be entered to win a new French Door Refrigerator from Electrolux – perfect for storing your own pitchers of lemonade. When others donate to your stand, they will also have a chance to win.

The new French Door Refrigerator by Electrolux has some cool new features that make it a great refrigerator for entertaining. This kind of refrigerator is the only kind that will fit in the opening in my kitchen. I'd LOVE to win one of these!! This refrigerator has many excellent options including the Perfect Temp Drawer™. This little lovely provides storage for items that you want to keep at an ideal temperature - me, I'd use it for cold cuts because I drive 25 miles to the grocery store that has the best cold cuts. It’s also a large enough refrigerator to store everything from party platters to juice boxes. The French Door Refrigerator also offers double the ice so there is always enough ice on hand to fill your pitchers of lemonade. I NEED an icemaker. I'm still operating with those little ice cube trays!!

Oh - and Mom Central will be giving away one French Door Refrigerator to a member of our community!* To enter, simply go to and (1) tell us about the lemonade stand you designed on the Electrolux site - which flavors you chose and (2) share your own “summer entertaining” tips/ideas. Mom Central will pick one lucky winner in a random drawing from all entries received!

So - if you need a new refrigerator - kill two birds with one stone. Help find a cure and enter to win. Get off your butt and go sell some lemonade!
