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).

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 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!

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 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 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

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.

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!
