Are you tired of long lines and seemingly endless mall traffic? This holiday season avoid the tomfoolery and come buy some jewelry!

The Life Raft Group is hosting an online shopping event in collaboration with our dedicated volunteer photographer Kim Tallau and Touchstone Crystals Jewelry (a member of the Swarovski Group). You can shop their online store from now until December 20 with 15 percent of all sales going towards helping the LRG achieve its goal of curing GIST and to helping those living with it until then.

Everyone who makes a purchase will also automatically be included in a raffle to win the eloquent Inspire necklace. All items will be delivered within a few days of purchase (They will be immediately shipped from Rhode Island, so while most orders will arrive in 2 days, orders from the western US may take longer).

Online instructions for this event to ensure LRG receives the contribution:

1. Go to When you are ready to purchase your items, proceed to checkout, until it asks you to register with a log-in. You MUST choose the “Checkout as Guest” option under New Customers.
