Spirit Jump is such a wonderful organization that lifts the hearts and spirits of those who are truly in need of support. I am touched to know that there are people out there who genuinely care about others enough - even those who don't know eachother - to reach out and send a little TLC and put a smile on someone's face.

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

Knowing that I'm bringing a little joy and something positive to someone's day who is suffering from a disease. Not only does it bring them a bit of happiness, it also makes me feel good inside knowing that I may have made someone's day.

Spirit Jump is an amazing charity with a fabulous goal - to lift up those in need. The organization has a great team of dedicated people working to help this charity grow. Spirit Jump has helped me share the lesson of compassion with my 6-year old daughter.

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

my own family. My daughter has developed an appreciation for life and compassion for those in need by participating with me in this organization.

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

never be able to do as good as the leaders of this organization have done.

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

I feel like I'm making a meaningful contribution to the world.

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

kind and professional

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

the possibilities are endless.

Ways to make it better...

everything was exactly as it is.

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

spreading the word.

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

I appreciate the gift that this organization has given . .the ability to help others in a way that makes me feel valuable.

Spirit Jump is a 5 star organization! As volenteers we get to hear life changing stories of people in a difficult time in their lives and respond with care and compassion. I love to hear the stories about how Spirit Jump helps the Jumpee but the affect it has on the Jumper is amazing as well!

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

on top of things. They are very organized and keep their volenteers well informed

I love being a member of Spirit Jump, where the heart of the matter is the heart matters! I think in this economy especially, it's good to give because even if we don't have money, we can give from our hearts, and that is priceless. I love this charity because they really show us anyone can make a difference, and let everyone know, no matter what they face, they are loved. Spirit Jump is a precious charity. I've had people worry about the people receiving things, but know SJ checks everything out and is trustworthy. It's nice to have that these days!

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

The messages they send from friends/families of the folks we help, we are really making a difference, and it's nice to know that we are!

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

Keep the people who are currently running it! :-)

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

Honesty, integrity, heart.

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

I've not met people in person, but online the SJ staff and volunteers are wonderful, heartfelt, caring, sincere, and strong.

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

It could, and would, change the lives of millions of people who otherwise would go through like without support and unconditional love they need at the time they need it most.

Ways to make it better...

If I only had more time and resources, I'm in a pinch myself.

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

Just getting the word out, but not for long! :-)

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

I feel blessed to be a part of SJ, I feel they are doing something 'other worldly' in the places that need it and are neglected most. They care so much!

I love being a Spirit Jumper! It warms my heart to know that I'm bringing a ray of sunshine to people who are experiencing life's toughest storms. I know that it works because I've received thank you cards for my cards. It's an amazing movement and I'm honored to be a part of Spirit Jump!

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

receiving thank you cards for the cards that I've sent.

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

do exactly what Meaghan and Stacy do. :)

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

hearing the good stories of people who are improving. Knowing that we have made the journey a little easier for patients and their families.

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

I know Meaghan through our blogs. She reached out to me when she found that I'd lost a daughter due to preterm birth. She's amazing.

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

I don't even know what it could. The sky is the limit because God is good all the time!

Ways to make it better...

we had a password protected database with addresses of patients. This would take some of the burden off of the staff emailing volunteers with addresses.

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

it can sometimes be emotionally draining. We're dealing with very serious issues. Sometimes you have to step back, take a deep breath and then move forward.

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

I LOVE SPIRIT JUMP!

To be a part of Spirit Jump as a "jumper" is an honor. I look forward to getting the list of those in need of encouragement every week. Spirit Jump has proven to be a heartfelt organization who really cares. I love the fact that they make it so easy to participate and never ever make me feel like I have to donate lots of money, etc. I choose what I want to send and who to send it to. I am a 13 year stage IV cancer survivor. One of the brightest moments of each long day in bed recovering from chemo and intensive radiation treatments was when the mail came. I still remember (and saved) ALL of the cards that I received during that time. Thank you Spirit Jump founders for coming up with such an AWESOME idea! May you be blessed in your journey!!

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

I'm new to the organzation, so I'd have to say the results have been in the weekly updates and emails to let me know how the folks are doing that I am reaching out to. That is such a nice follow up.

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

have these 2 founders run it for me.

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

everyone's enthusiasm to make a difference. And the founders make it easy to participate!

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

friendly, informative, uplifting and very responsive.

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

reach a lot more people that need encouragement.

Ways to make it better...

I had found out about it sooner.

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

getting the word out. We can all help by telling those we know and putting the logo on our twitter, facebook and LinkedIn pages to help advertise this awesome organization.

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

you should send in the names of people that you know who are battling cancer and need a lift. And/or join the team and become a spirit jumper yourself. Send a card, a gift or whatever moves you to encourage someone who is battling for their life.

Spirit Jump is the most incredible organization I have ever had the privilege to be a part of. The charitable efforts of its founders, Meaghan and Stacy, not only help cancer victims, but uplift the spirits of the people who have answered the Spirit Jump call as well. There is nothing that compares to the “feel good” that comes with helping out another, especially when the chips are really down. Sending cups of kindness to friends in need is what it’s all about, and Spirit Jump affords me that opportunity (right from my own livingroom, no less!). Aside from motherhood, I never felt like I was making a real difference in the world, until Spirit Jump crossed my path. I can’t say thank you enough for this organization. Spirit Jump serves to remind us all that we ALL matter.

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

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

the most generous and loving people walking the planet! (Surely, they will be declared saints!)

Ways to make it better...

WAIT A MINUTE! My experience couldn't have been better. Spirit Jump is amazing!

I love this organization. What a great way to reach out, especially for those of us who can't afford to donate tons of money. Anyone can send a card to cheer up someone with cancer and we all know family or friends that have battled cancer. The fact that it is run by a cancer survivor just inspires me!

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

I was able to reach out to a cancer patient.

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

change nothing.

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

feeling like I can make a difference in someone's life.

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

Sweet, helpful and get right back to you with questions/answers.

Ways to make it better...

I can't think of anything!

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

getting volunteers to help.

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

I am so glad that I found Spirit Jump. I enjoy sending packages out to those battling cancer in the hopes that it will brighten their day.

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

having a daughter of a recipient of one of my packages let me know that her mother hadn't done as much as she did the day she got my package in months.

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

feeling like I make a difference.

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

amazingly generous people.

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

make more and more people who are battling cancer have something to look forward to.

I joined Spirit Jump as a one year survivor of Breast Cancer. I know firsthand how much it means to know that someone is thinking of you, and cheering you on. I also know that not everyone has the support system that I was blessed with. I saw Spirit Jump as a wonderful way to give back. My 10 year old daughter and I have made this an activity we share together. I hadn't expected that we would get as much, if not more out of joining Spirit Jump as the recipients, but we both definitely have. We read the updates together, decide what to send, package up our little gifts together. Janey enjoys addressing the packages, and feels the more stickers and decorations the better, so our gifts arrive wrapped in art. I am so proud of my little girl and the love she puts into Spirit Jump. I know the recipients feel it, and what a wonderful gift for US to be able to lift the spirits of patients and families who are in the same shoes we were in a year ago.

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

the thank you note I received from the family of little Grace who received some coloring books from us. Her parents were sincerely grateful for the support, and the best part was knowing the joy it brought to Grace to receive the gift.
