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

the sense that I was able to do something good for somebody in need

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

getting the oppurtunity to meet Meaghan in person

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

amazing and inspiring

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

lift the spirits of so many people fighting cancer.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

One time

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 personally experienced the results of this organization in...

My own family and many others.

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

donate every dollar I had and work every day I could to make these peoples lives better

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

Seeing how it impacts people every day and how much joy it brings to their lives

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

Passionate

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

Do everything it wants to.

Ways to make it better...

I had more money and time to give.

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

getting everyday people to put aside some time to make someones day a little brighter

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

It feels good to see a charity do so much with so little.

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.

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

The good feelings that are received from giving and being apart of a worthy opportunity.

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.

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

well, it's actually really great. They always post feedback about patients, how they are doing, their response to their "spirit jump", etc. So it's nice to hear that you made a difference. Then you move on with your day. It's all very simple.

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

that it has uplifted my spirits just by simply reaching out to help a stranger. We all could use more of that in our everyday lives.

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

sincere, helpful, and kind.

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

reading the blogs of greatful recipients.

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

The feeling I could really contribute to make someone's life a little better. I was able to do something specific for individuals, and it was a very good feeling for me, and I hope for the jumpees.

Hear about this great organization at Christmas time... When my IRL friend AmyB was diagnosed with cancer. The outpouring of uplifting cards and gifts not only for her, but her oldest son Philip (who has other serious medical issues) has been fantastic! I have seen how much SpiritJump has blessed Amy, Philip and the whole family.

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

Spread the simple joy of putting a smile on faces of those that are I'll and sometimes feel alone.

Spirit Jump helps to fill a much needed void. Those affected by catastrophic diseases often feel alone and are unable to enjoy the lives they once had. Being able to touch the lives of those in need has filled a void in my spirit as well. I have lost several people I love due to cancer. It is uplifting to be able to bring some happiness to others in their time of crisis.

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

Those who we have sent Spirits Jumps to have said those cards, gifts, and thoughts have made a difference in their lives.

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

being able to bring some joy to those in need.

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