Doing Splits (the banana kind) for Ovarian Cancer & Win $25 Amex Card

There are three parts to this one and all ar exciting so pay attention....

Build Virtual Banana Splits to Fund Ovarian Cancer Research

Kelly Ripa and Electrolux have teamed up for a fun way to donate to a great cause. Visit and create your own virtual banana split. For each split created each day, Electrolux will donate $1.00 to the Ovarian Cancer Reasearch Fund!

Why Banana Splits?

For the splits of course! No, not that yoga/gymnastic move that I attempt after one too many margarita's - it's to celebrate the splitting up of the refridgerator and freezer. Elextrolux has full size fridge-only refrigerators and stand alone freezers that can stand next to each other in your kitchen and impress all your friends and the crankiest of mother-in-laws (totally NOT saying mine is cranky, nor does she need to be impressed, but I have friends that complain about theirs).

Can you just imagine having this in your kitchen.....

full size Electrolux refrigerator and freezer

It makes me drool even more than the banana split I just made!

Now Let's Talk About Winning!

Making a virtual banana split is great for the donation but it might leave you wanting something a little sweet, no?

Enter to win the Electrolux refrigerator and freezer combo!

Each day you can make a banana split and you'll be autmatically entered to win the daily prize of $50 for sweet treats and for the grand prize of a set of stand-alone Electrolux refrigerator/freezer!

Enter on TWOFERMOM to win a $25 American Express gift card

Three easy ways to enter. Do one, or do all three for maximum entries! Leave a comment though for each one so I can track. Thanks!

1. Visit and make a banana split then share with me your recipe in a comment.

2. Post a link to this giveaway on Twitter (include @Twincident) or Facebook and leave a comment with the URL for that tweet or Facebook posting

3. Subscribe to this blog via email (click on the coffee cup in the upper area of my sidebar) and leave a comment like "I subscribe" with your email in the comment (but use "yourname {at} emailservce {dotcom} so crawlers don't pick it up).

The giveaway for the $25 AMEX card ends Monday, 7/26/10 at 11:00pm ET. Giveaway is open to all US & Canada residents 18 and over. Winner will be drawn using from all valid entries and notified via email and/or Twitter.

Good luck and happy splits! You better come back and tell me if you win the fridge/freezer too. Also, if you can still do 'the splits' without too many margaritas I'd like to know.


Disclosure: I received a $25 Amex gift card from BSM Media and Electrolux as a thank you for participating in this blog campaign. All opinions expressed here are my own and this post was neither reviewed nor approved prior to publishing.
