I have know Meaghan for many years. My wife and I visited her at the hospital many times and she recovered at our home after many of her surgeries. Spirit Jump was an idea that she talked about throughout her cancer battle and I am so excited to see it come to life!

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

Meaghans smiles, pictures on the website, emails updates from those who have received spirits jumps.

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

Do nothing different

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

Seeing how it improves the lives of everyone involved.

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

Kind and generous. They work endlessly and do it without any compensation. The joy they experience is enough for them and thats amazing

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

The things it could do....endless

Ways to make it better...

Could not have been better. Im so impressed with everything they have been able to do without any funding!

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

Funding...they have none yet work all day everyday with passion and determination

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

I hope they win this contest because as a small charity the exposure would be wonderful for them!

I have known Meaghan, the director of Spirit Jump, for just a few years. In that time I have been inspired by her courage, touched by her compassion and astonished at her commitment to helping other people. I have seen her not only deal with her own cancer, going into the hospital for regular surgeries every few months, but simultaneously reach out to help others as director of Spirit Jump and as leader at school. This organization brings a light when some people only see darkness. Its a wonderful charity and I am proud to be a Spirit Jumper.

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

helping support people in need off having their spirits lifted

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

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

professional and compassionate

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

create a network of hospitals that desire Spirit Jumps for ICUs

Ways to make it better...

I am Meaghan's best friend and have watched her through this terrible battle. Spirit Jump is the product of her own experience with cancer and I believe that's why it works so well. Spirit Jump is about lifting the spirits of those battling cancer and I see it work every day

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

the stories Meaghan has shared with me and the look on her face when she received Spirit Jumps herself

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

everything they have done

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

Watching it grow and hearing of all the wonderful people it touches across the world!

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

Passionate, full of life and people who really know what its like to fight cancer.

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

The obvious...help more people battling cancer

Ways to make it better...

I wish I could be more involved and I hope to be soon

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

finances and the growing pains of being a start up

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

Keep up the good work

I have watched my daughter battle cancer, survive and now create this wonderful organization. Her battle was not an easy one but it inspired her to reach out to others in hopes of lifting their spirits.

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

in my daughter face, voice and heart! I have also personally sent spirit jumps out and this warmed my heart as a jumper

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

do exactly what they are doing.

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

Watching how it has helped my daughter over come her personal battles. Meaghan feels that she had cancer for a reason and now that reason is clear to her.

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

full of heart, compassion and love

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

help even more people

Ways to make it better...

my daughter never had cancer

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

Finances. I know they work tirelessly and do not make any money. What little they have is used to improve Spirit Jump and I know if they had more money they would immediately invest in making Spirit Jump bigger and better than it already is

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

I love all those who are involved

What a great group of people! One of the founders I knew from blogger, before she started the Spirit Jump program. She directly dealt with cancer so she knows what its like. I believe they both did... they send cards and gifts to cancer patients around the world, to lift their spirits. WHAT A GREAT IDEA!!!! God bless all of them!

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

the lives of the cancer patients it touches. People who might possibly have no one, have support and love through the spirit jumpers!
