My Stone Company was established with the aim of spreading the message of friendship and cultivating stronger connections in people, including personal, spiritual and emotional ties.
“The bond of friendship is one of the most valuable gifts of life,” said Cathy Raff, founder and president of My Stone Company.
My Stone Company was launched in 2007 after a visit to South Africa when Cathy Raff brought back with her amazing Tiger’s Eye’s, semi-precious gemstones. The remarkable beauty of the stone and its ability to change with the rays of light became an inspiration and metaphor for how one can change perspectives and choose to look at life’s challenges with optimism. What started with giving a few stones to a couple of her friends soon grew into The Friendship Stone.
“We believe every person, both young and old needs and deserves to know they have someone to look up to, someone who supports them and appreciates them,” said Cathy. "Big Brothers, Big Sisters’ commitment to changing how our youth grow up in America remains in harmony with My Stone Company’s aspiration to inspire lives." The company continues to give-back to Big Brothers Big Sisters through The Friendship Stone’s Power of Two gift packs sold from their joint website: www.BigBrothersBigSisters-TheFriendshipStone.com.
