Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Cancer

Mission: The mission of Spirit Jump is to provide hope and comfort to the many men, women and children battling cancer, one gift at a time. Spirit Jump strives to let each and every cancer fighter know that they are not alone in their battle and that there are people behind them as they fight. Spirit Jump’s goal is to help cancer fighters fight strong by providing uplifting cards and inspirational gifts from our “Jumpers” to help fighters maintain the strength they need every day as they battle this terrible disease. The Amazing Part:. The amazing thing about Spirit Jump is that both the person giving a gift (Jumper) often has their spirit lifted just as much as the person receiving the gift (Jumpee).

Results: We have lifted the spirits of over 150 people battling cancer all over the world.

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.

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

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.

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!

This is a wonderful way to help others and I enjoy giving spirit jumps. People need a lift now and then and spirit jumps are a way to help both the person battling cancer and the person giving the jumps !!!!

I am amazed by the work Spirit Jump does. It's all about Paying It Forward and making a difference. You can only truly understand about cancer if you have in some way "been there." I am proud to be a spirit jumper!

I just started as a Spirit Jumper and couldn't be more proud of the decision! I learned about the organization through an amazing and inspiring colleague of mine, Laura Levitan and was eager to learn more. The day I joined I received several warm welcomes from Spirit Jump members and those types of gestures show how absolutely inspiring the Spirit Jumpers and Jumpees are. I am looking forward to getting more involved as a jumper and also looking forward to spreading the word about this amazing organization that provides hope and kindness to those in need.

I'm quite a new Spirit Jumper and I have to say that I admire greatly the dedication, energy and love that oozes from the people at Spirit Jump.To do something for someone is simply wonderful. I like to give back by donating love, hugs, hope and prayers (virtual ones or real). My husband had a kidney transplant in 2000; I was in a foreign country with almost no help & almost no knowledge of the language. I know what it's like to see someone you love in pain and to not know if they would survive or not. We did not have SpiritJump at that time but I know what it is like to feel isolated and in need of understanding and compassion, that's why I enjoy giving to people who are in need of the love, understanding and compassion, and to let them know someone out there is rooting for them with all their heart and soul. Keep up the great work!!!
