I am a volunteer Spirit Jumper and I LOVE this organization! It's great because you can make a positive impact on other people's lives, but you can fit it into your schedule because it's so flexible :)

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

Flexible ways to give of yourself to others!

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

recruit more volunteers and get more people involved in this wonderful experience of giving!

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

being able to use my talents to give to others and lift their spirits in at least a small way.

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

kind, efficient and giving.

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

change the experience of people with cancer!

Ways to make it better...

have more volunteers!

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

growing quickly to a larger organization.

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

I love being a part of Spirit Jump!

I absolutely LOVE this Charity! In the process of dealing with surgeries and also having several friends and family members fighting cancer as well. It has become my passion to promote it, as well as give to it. It's really a positive and rewarding experience to know that anything I make or send is going to bring a smile to someone's face. I love to hear all the updates and see all the different items that people have sent. Thanks Meaghan for turning me onto it!

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

the faces of those that recieve Spirit Jumps and their updates!

I am not quite sure how I found Spirit Jump but it has been such a rewarding experience for me. Sending one of my crocheted hats or other items from my Etsy shop has brought me much happiness. When the call comes that there are people needing jumps ...it can be very emotional reading their stories. Just knowing that there will be a smile on their face when they receive your package makes your heart swell!

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

the responses I have received from those that were the recipient of one of my Chemo Caps

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

am not sure that I would be able to do what these 2 women have accomplished in such a short time.

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

When you are a Spirit Jumper you feel like you are part of a family!

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

OH so willing to make you feel a part of this charity.

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

What a difference this would make. Instead of focusing on getting donations they could do more to focus on those needing help.

Ways to make it better...

I could refrain from the emotions I have when I read the call for Spirit Jumps!

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

Getting enough donations to keep this Charity running.

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

I am happy to be a Spirit Jumper!!

Spirit Jump is such a unique organization. It works on the old fashioned principal of people helping people! My brother recently passed away after a long hard fight with kidney cancer. A blog friend of mine told me about Spirit Jump, and I contacted them right away with our story. They hurried and tried to help Mike before he lost his battle. Unfortuantely, we were too late. However, the organization continued to send me encouraging emails after death. I have since become a Spirit Jumper, and am so blessed to be a part!

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

The joy it brings to people suffering with cancer. The depression is lessened by knowing that they are not alone, and others DO care about how they are feeling!

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

Caring and compassionate. They really understand!

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

Change the lives of so many cancer patients and their families!

I had never heard of such an organization as this before and became instantly involved with Spirit Jump. I have such a great feeling of worthiness when I send a card or small gift to someone who is down. My 10 year old son also sends out cards and pictures he has made to some folks. It's an invaluable way for me to teach him that not everyone is as fortunate to have their health and it enables me to show him that being a loving and giving person is so rewarding. I love being a part of this organization and I hope to watch them grow and become even more wonderful!!

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

being able to help those in need of a smile and some joy. In being able to share in their good news as well as the not so good.

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

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

AWESOME. They are totally 100% committed to this work.

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

Do GREAT GREAT things for many more people!

Ways to make it better...

I hope to see this organization continue to grow and flourish and continue to serve such a wonderful and worthwhile purpose.

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

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

I am so very proud to be a part of this organization

I was brought to Spirit Jumpers on a blog. I was so moved by the stories involved that I became an instant fan. I have done a few jumps and I cannot explain how it feels to be able to reach out to people who sometimes just need a kind word or to know that someone cares. Sometimes it is very difficult to read the stories, but it also makes me greatful for what I have in my life. Thank you for this great organization. Anne Miller

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

the responses I have gotten from my participation. I keep in touch with all of the people that I can.

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

It makes me realize how precious life is and how good I have it compaired to others.

Spirit Jump has a simple but important mission. The organization helps lift the spirits of those suffering from cancer with cards, small gifts, and well wishes. These tokens of support, sent by a network of volunteers, let cancer patients know that they are not alone in their fight and have a community around the country and beyond that are invested in their recovery and well being. Spirit Jump's clear objectives and clever use of social media have helped the organization grow quickly and develop a group of dedicated volunteers. Its mission is driven by an enthusiastic and devoted leadership. Spirit Jump is poised to continue growing and touching more lives of those with cancer.

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

The testimonials of those uplifted.

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

Witnessing the positivity and network of support.

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

Enthusiastic and committed.

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

Touch cancer patients all over the world.

I am so grateful to everyone that works so hard to make Spirit Jump possible. There is true heart, true love, and a total commitment to maintaining a format that connects the brave fighters of cancer with the caring people that want to lift their spirits. I love being a spirit jumper. It has connected me with people that inspire and amaze me so. Thank you Spirit Jump from my heart to yours, Pam Shelton

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

Bringing people together, letting them know they are cared for and loved...when their spirits need lifted the most. The power of positive healing thoughts and energy is HUGE.

Spirit Jump is a fantanstic charity organization! You do what you can when you can and what you can afford, wheather it be simple or something elaborate. It is so appreciated, not only by the person you are sending to but by the women who run this fine charity! I have been involved as a volunteer for the last 4 months, and I am so thankful that I can help others (men, women & children) who are facing some of the hardest times in their lives. SPIRIT JUMP YOU ARE AWESOME!

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

it brings a smile to those who truly need it the most while battling cancer.

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

just doing something for those who at the moment cannot.

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

wonderful, so responsive when a "in need of a jump" request is sent out to the volunteers.

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

become a GLOBAL non profit charity.
