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.

Ways to make it better...

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

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.

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!!!
