Great organization that asks volunteers to just provide a lift to people with cancer who need it. No strings attached to participation. You choose when you want to engage and they manage the details. A group like this does make a difference in the lives of those fighting cancer.

This is a charity full of so much love and wonderful people. This charity has allowed me to use my creativity to bring a smile to someone battling cancer. This charity does the most important thing for these people and that is letting them know that they are not alone.

I have been a Spirit Jumper for a few months and I really love this group.  I get such a great feeling after doing a jump, as I feel like I am giving a small boost to someone who really needs to be lifted up.  I requested a jump this past week and it was sent out this past weekend.  The support from this group is really great.

The outpouring of kindness and love from this group is amazing. This wonderful non profit gives hope and comfort to those battling cancer and lets them know that they are not alone. This is how it works: the call goes out to spiritjumpers that there is a person(s) in need of their spirits being jumped and the "jumpers" send a card or small gift to them. This usually results in a flood of well wishes and the "jumpee" feels the kindness and friendship from such a strong network of people and the givers "jumpers" also become the receivers of what is felt within the heart.

I became a "Jumper" about two months ago. Along with sending flowers to a person in the hospital, I have sent positive emails and prayers for those with cancer. This is a wonderful positive site and I recommend it to people that want to volunteer.

Spirit jump is a wonderful organization. When my mom was having a hard time with her brain cancer people sent her "spirit jumps" and it really made her feel so much better. I now send spirit jumps to those who need it and I am proud to belong to an organization like this as i have seen what good they do first hand.

I am a recent cancer survivor. This horrible health wreaking killer ravages your body inside and out. It assaults your energy and attitude. Your very belief in yourself can be difficult to hold on to. I learned about Spiritjump while on Twitter, and started “following”, then joined the movement. I could not help it. Sending spirit lifting letters or gifts to those in the throngs of suffering any disease is simply the right thing to do. Some patients’ are not consoled by many family members or friends. While some have a few visitors major illness can be a long drawn out struggle. All those fighting for their life need and deserve comfort. And it turns out we spiritjumpers benefit almost as much as those that receive the “jumps”. Being a spiritjumper makes you feel good. Imagine reading notes or receiving a gift from someone you don’t even know that took a little time say ” hi there I CARE! So sorry you are struggling. Keep the faith and remember people out there care about you.” This is a wonderful use of time and energy for anyone to endeavor. So recommending Spiritjump is easy. Everyone should consider a little random act of kindness once in awhile wouldn’t you agree? Spiritjump is what’s right with the internet. Spiritjump is what’s right with America. Spiritjump is what’s right with the world.

My name is Lillie and I lost my 26 year old stepdaughter, Annie, May 2008, to an error in a minor procedure she was was having, after having had a tumor removed off her vocal chords. Annie had Schwannamatosis, a type of Neurofibromatosis. After her death, I start seeking out people who had gone through similar situations and I was also looking for ways I could volunteer, in Annie's memory. I was introduced to Spirit Jump through Twitter. After learning about Spirit Jump, I knew that it was something I could do. I am a caregiver for my mom so I don't have an opportunity to get out and volunteer. The first contacts I made through Spirit Jump were to three ladies, all battling cancer. I was given three names, with three stories, and three addresses. It was only three cards that I sent that first time but the feeling it gave me was if I had sent 50. It made me feel sooo good, knowing that I was making someone's day a little better. Myself, I love receiving cards and mail, so for someone who is ill, I know it has to mean more. The next "jumpee" I found out about was a nine year old little girl, Destiny, who has been battling Neurofibromatosis most of her life. I instantly felt a connection to Destiny, because she is battling the same disease my Annie had. I have sent a few packages to Destiny, with just little gifts for her and her younger brother. The joy it brings me is indescribable. I feel such a connection to Destiny, and her mom and I have also become friends. The distance doesn't matter, the dollar amount doesn't matter, the size of the gift doesn't matter, what matters is that someone is thinking of Destiny, and so many others, and someone is taking the time to say, we care. We are here, we love you, and we support you. We don't all know what Cancer patients are going through, but we know that we care because we are human beings. Spirit Jump is such an awesome organization, thw people who run it are down to earth, they care about what WE, Spirit Jumpers are doing. They let us know that they appreciate us, and that what we are doing for others makes them proud to be running the Spirit Jump organization. I have become part of a group of people who are the most amazing people ever. I have never felt so good about public service as I do now. This is so good for me, it makes me a better person, just letting others know that I am here and I care.
