Need a lift? Send a gift! That's the whole idea behind Spirit Jump a wonderful Charity whose mission is to lift the spirits of those battling cancer and other debilitating diseases. I am PROUD to be a SPIRIT JUMPER!!

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

The blogs and Tweets from "Jumpees"

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

Dedicate my life to this organization

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

It's so simple and easy ANYONE can volunteer!

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

Wonderful!

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

Help Million of people!

Ways to make it better...

I had founded this charity!! LOL!

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

Money! They are operating on a donation basis only.

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

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.

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

the impact that they have on those who are fighting cancer; they renew hope and support those in the fight!

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

tell the world about it!

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

knowing that what I have done has made a direct impact on the individual in need.

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

very organized and helpful.

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

get some office space and perhaps a new computer or two; hire someone to assist with the record keeping; not have to rely on donations to exist during tough economic times; have an impact on more people.

Ways to make it better...

I could do more; but I know that others are out there also doing small bits.

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

getting the word out about their work!

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

this is an amazing group that is letting those who are fighting cancer that they are not alone. They are doing so well in connecting people to support those in need.

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.

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

Is knowing how happy the jumpees are when they receive there jumps.

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. 

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

the people they help.

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

not change a thing

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

the ability to make someone feel good.

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

great.

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

really help a lot of people who are needing their spirits lifted

Ways to make it better...

nothing. This group does a good job as is.

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

lack of funds, but they are doing a great job with what they have.

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

this is a very deserving organzation that has a very big heart.

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

with twitter

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

that it is from the heart and it is something you can do to give back.

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

be awesome. The founders and donators are what make it run. It is a lot of work for the founders which they do out of love for what they created and what is has done. With more money they could reach more people.

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.

it's growth and positive feedback.

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.

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

Spiritjumps comes from the hearts of those that care. TO individuals in need. Spiritjump provides random acts of kindness...

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

This organization is in the right hands. May the good lord bless Magan and Stacy

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

Make be feel good

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

Fabulous

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

Assist Millions of people suffering life threatening disease feel better. See a brighter future. Understand people care about THEM. Is there a better more noble use of funds than that?

Ways to make it better...

WILL BE BETTER when I can do more to help Sriritjump help those in need

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

They need operating capital, staffing as they grow. More and more volunteers

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

If you can afford a little time; a get well card or a letter. If you have compassion and a big heart; you're in luck. YOU TOO CAN BE A SPIRITJUMPER. How wonderful it is that you get to send "jumps" and you do not need to receive them. Sign up today!

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.

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

the closeness that I feel with so many others who are doing the same thing I am. Personally I don't know any of the others "jumpers" but in my heart I know that they are all there, and that they appreciate what I am doing for others.

Ways to make it better...

I had known about this organization sooner. I would have loved to be involved in this group from the beginning, when it was first started.
