i read about this organization in a cancer newsletter, a small ad. I decided that I would like to see if the mission behind the name was the same. So i wrote a small section about my family and our experiences with cancer. I was well received. The mail came for at least 3 weeks after that with such an outpouring of love in the way of cards, trinkets, you name it. And to my brother as well, who is in the battle. We both want to pass on this same affection and say thank you again and again.

Hi, I can't remember if I've already written a review, if I did please excuse me. I met Meaghan when she came to Brigham and Women's Hospital, where I work. She was a delight to be with, very inspiring and kind. I participated in Spirit Jump last year and it made me feel good on the inside to send a little something special to a very sick little boy. I recommend Spirit Jump for anyone who wants to spread some cheer and/or do a good deed.

I have been involved in charity work for many years and I can honestly say that Spirit Jump is the one that I like the most. My cousin is an inspiration to everyone that hears her story and her dedication to this group is an example that all charities need to look at. She never gave up and her strength is now the catalyst for one of the most wonderful organizations in existence. I would strongly urge anyone who reads this to devote whatever spare time and resources you can give to help people who truly need it and will genuinely appreciate every second and every penny you can give.

I've been participating for a few months now, and find the opportunity to give whenever I can. Not only is the Spirit Jump a worthy cause in lifting so many spirits, when you participate, the benefits are monumental to the receipient - and to you.

I think that Spirit Jump is a truly lovely thing to be a part of! I am grateful to have been given the opportunity to volunteer. The idea is simple and yet so huge. It is so simple to volunteer and there are no pressures, it is really fantastic. It is a real example of what the human spirit can accomplish when put to the test. I'm proud to be apart of such a group and hope to contribute as often as I can. Sometimes just knowing you are not alone makes all the difference. Spirit Jump allows strangers to connect across the the world in a really unique way. It also supports and encourages handmade artisans and their businesses. People continue to amaze me everyday. The founders of Spirit Jump...amaze me. Spirit Jump is wonderful.

Spirit Jump is such a worthy organization! Helping to boost the spirits of people fighting cancer, letting them know that other people care about them and what they are going through, can help those people better muster their own inner strengths to keep on going. This sincere, enthusiastic, and well organized non profit changes lives!

I think this is a beautiful idea. Having had many close to me fight the cancer battle I've seen how important it is to feel you're not alone.

I haven't been too involved in Spirit Jump but my mom has, and somedays it's all she talks about. She loves sending cards to people who have cancer and other diseases. My sister died in May of 2008 and my mom is a Spirit Jumper in my sister's honor. I think Spirit Jump is a great thing.
