For a Cause Spotlights: uptownliz

A while ago, I posted about giving back through shopping.
I got a wonderful comment from Ramona Russel about a website she created in memory of her sister Liz, who died from breast cancer. The website, Uptown Liz, "was founded to promote products from companies whose proceeds directly give back to charitable organizations".
The site is beyond amazing. It's set up in a way that you can shop by products or by charity.
They have everything from shoes to toys, supporting almost every cause from autism to ovarian cancer.
I think this site might just be the sight to change my mind about online shopping.
so yea. Shop for a Cause. Uptown Liz calls it "retail philanthropy".
