Spirit Jump is a great organization. My wife is a jumper and I think she benefits as much as the jumpees!

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Expand their services.

I found Spirit Jump via Twitter. Being a "jumper" with Spirit Jump has been one of the most rewarding experiences I have ever had with a charity. I know who I am touching and I know their story so it is a much more personal experience than simply writing a check to a charity.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I've seen the testimonials from the people fighting cancer and from their family members expressing how much Spirit Jump has helped them or their loved one. They are sometimes overwhelmed that people they do not even know want to send them a gift.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Continue on the path they have begun and try to expand to help as many people as possible.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Knowing that I am making someone smile. I also enjoy the fact that there is no pressure or long term commitment. You send a jump as often as you like.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Everyone have have met is very passionate about Spirit Jump. The staff have their own cancer battles and are very invested in this cause and it shows.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Greatly expand the number of people it is able to touch and probably expand the services that are offered.

Ways to make it better...

I can't think of anything that would improve my experience. I love Spirit Jump and being a Spirit Jumper.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

I think they face what would be typical challenges for a growing non-profit, but I have confidence they will overcome those challenges as they arise.

One thing I'd also say is that...

Spirit Jump is a truly wonderful organization and I plan to be involved for the foreseeable future.

I don't really know what to say other than my dear friend Amy who is battling breast cancer and her sweet son, Philip who has survived 19 brain operations and is battling seizures and immense pain, have truly been lifted by Spirit Jump. I just wanted to put this out there on their behalf.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I receive 'Tweets' daily and also have a friend who shares her experiences.

I have heard so many positive things from people that received a spirit jump. And those who do the jumping are just as blessed. Even just sending something simple as a note or card can really lift someone's spirits right when they need it. It is amazing how so many people that don't even know each other can reach out and say a kind word or send a small gift. This is just a great idea.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the recipients words of how the organization and its volunteers made them feel.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

try to get some grants and also look for unpaid interns to help out.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the opportunity to help others in just a small way that doesn't take much time but makes such a difference.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

very dedicated.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

hire some help and get some great PR!

Ways to make it better...

nothing. I can't think of anything to change.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

time. As the organization grows, the people running it will likely get overloaded.

One thing I'd also say is that...

this is the only volunteer work that has made me feel so good about my self so quickly. It is my way to give back to others through just a small token that doesn't cost a lot of time or money.

Spirit Jump is a God-send...I'm honored to be a small part of this humble organization. I know I'm lifting up someone, at their greatest time of need, with whatever I am able to offer. These small tokens of extended frendship and love have returned as a blessing to me. God Bless You, Spirit Jump ~ Sparrow

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

The fabulous and humbling response of all who have received a Spirit Jump is captured daily on Twitter.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

It's amazing grace, to receive a new friendship resulting from a small token sent in the form of a greeting card.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

I've not met the beautiful ladies of Spirit Jump although I feel I know them through their powerful and effective "tweets" on Twitter!

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

No monetary amount can match the genuine hearts of the Spirit Jump "family"...although, 10 million bucks would enable the organization to positively touch additional needy souls.

Sprit Jump is an organization that connects people through a "cancer club." As a cancer survivor, I know how much letters, notes, thoughts and prayers help during the dark days of diagnosis, treatment and recovery. That little lift that someone out there is thinking of me or that someone has survived the same illness gives the survivor the strength to "soldier on" and complete treatment and recovery.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Updates by email.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Learning about new people and their fights with cancer and illness.

Spirit Jump is an amazing organization that brings so much to cancer patients without requiring a big investment from those who wish to give. Sometimes it is the little things that can make a world of difference for those who are ill. Spirit Jump provides the pathway to those people who need their spirit jumped. This is something everyone can do.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

that I was able to lift someone's spirit who I otherwise would not have known about. Although my finances are very tight, I was able to do something positive and possibly help make a difference.

The concept of Spirit Jump is amazing. I was drawn to the organization when my Mother became very ill. She often cared for others with her nurturing personality. During her battle for cancer I needed to find a way to boost her spirit and Spirit Jump was it! The caring cards and notes from Spirit Jumpers lifted not only my Mother but my entire family. When my Mother passed we asked individuals that wanted to give something in her honor to become Spirit Jumpers. She would want others to benefit from the kindness of others and this was a perfect way to pay to forward and make an impact in the lives of others!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

how it has touched a cancer patient and someone who lost her spark. It was able to show my Mother a ray of light even in her darkest hours before her passing. THe Spirit Jumpers touched her life in such a positive way!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Ways to make it better...

Mother could have been alive longer to have continued to benefit from the notes, messages, cards, gifts, etc from the Spirit Jumpers.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

One thing I'd also say is that...
