About 2 months ago I met Ramona Rusell, founder of Type A Solutions over the phone. After we spoke I went to her website and browsed around for a while. I found a page on her site talking about her sister Liz. My heart sank reading the story Ramona told. Her sister passed away from Breast Cancer at the age of 28. At the time Ramona was raising money for Relay for Life, a walk celebrating those who have passed away from cancer. Ramona and her team raised $22,000 this year.

Last night I received and email from Ramona about a new website called Uptown Liz. Uptown Liz promotes products from companies whose proceeds directly give back to charitable organizations. Liz was a fashionista and Uptown Liz was created in her memory.

So, next time you plan to do some online shopping check out Uptown Liz first. Why not give back to a charity close to your heart while shopping?
