Spirit Jump is an amazing organization that brings so much to cancer patients without requiring a big investment from those who wish to give. Sometimes it is the little things that can make a world of difference for those who are ill. Spirit Jump provides the pathway to those people who need their spirit jumped. This is something everyone can do.

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

that I was able to lift someone's spirit who I otherwise would not have known about. Although my finances are very tight, I was able to do something positive and possibly help make a difference.

Most of us don’t need statistics to show us the insidiousness of this illness. We have all been touched by it in some way. I lost my mother to cancer one short month ago. When my mother was very ill, Spirit Jump reached out to her offering her comfort and putting a smile on her face. She was touched and moved that someone that had never even met her cared enough to send her a comfortable pillow and to let her know they cared. After her loss, it has been my privilege to join this organization and help reach out to others who are fighting this disease. It’s simple – as a “Spirit Jumper” you remind someone that, even though you might not know them personally, you care about them, you stand with them in their battle, and you are sending up a prayer that God will grant them strength and courage every day. For that, I am humbled and feel honored to be a part of this organization. To Spirit Jump and all the “Jumpees” out there that may be reading this, thank you for letting me be part of this movement. All of you are in my heart and prayers.

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

my own family. Thank you for letting my family know that you care and that this fight is bigger than anyone person.

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

the ability to reach out to people of all ages and see a direct and immediate impact in that person's life. This organization is so much more than writing a check or sending a donation. It is one-on-one and powerful.

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

one of Spirit Jump's founders, Meaghan. She is an amazing person and truly dedicated to making a difference in the world through Spirit Jump.

This is a wonderful charity which provides much needed moral support to those people who most need a 'spirit jump'! The work they are doing is awesome!

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

put so many smiles on people's faces and let people know they are not alone in their fight!

When I was made aware of Spirit Jump, I joined immediately. They are truly an amazing organization that literally "jumps" to be there for people suffering. I lost my mother to pancreatic cancer two years ago. It was an excruciating and long journey filled with sadness and pain. Any kindness during that time gave me the lift of energy I needed to be there for my mom. Spirit Jump is a great idea and it makes a great difference in the lives of people dealing with cancer. When I get the Spirit Jump requests, I happily see what I can do. It is so rare in these hard times to feel great and knwo you are making a difference. Spirit Jump makes a difference. Real people who have taken such a simple idea and brought joy, hope and community to people when they feel at their most alone time. The Spirit Jump concept is easy, inspiring and advances the best attributes in people. I think everyone should join. Every Jump makes a difference and I applaud Spirit Jump for their work.

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

the words of the people that have been helped. Most recently a woman who was alone in a hospital who got over 15 calls from all over the US after Spirit Jump sent out an alert

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

It is easy and it feels GOOD to participate

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

varied, diverse, caring, compassionate, creative and giving

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

expand its reach and help more people

I learned about Spirit Jump on Twitter a few months ago and have been an avid supporter ever since. So many of us feel that we can't spare money to donate to a cause or that it won't really make a difference but you can be a Spirit Jumper and really make a difference in someone's life for merely the price of a card and a stamp. Those battling cancer and other serious illnesses often need the most important treatment of just knowing they are not alone and Spirit Jump helps them know that.

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

increasing fulfillment in my own life by working to bring joy to others. I've also seen the results in the testimonials from those who've received the benefits of Spirit Jump and their gratitude.

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

all the wonderful people that I have met through Spirit Jump and the way that it makes me feel to let someone know that they are cared for and not alone.

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

wonderful, dedicated and caring.

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

make an even bigger impact and broaden its scope to help more people in even bigger ways but what I love most about Spirit Jump is the fact that its members can make such a big impact with so little.

I'm a cancer survivor and I know how important an encouraging note or card from a stranger can be. Just knowing there is someone out there saying a prayer for you gives you strength and brings you comfort. Now I can give back through Spirit Jump and it still feeds my spirit. The founder, Meaghan,is an amazing person and works very hard to uphold the integrity of the organization. Spirit Jumpers are like another family, supporting those battling cancer and fellow Spirit Jumpers as well. It's simple and easy, and you can contribute at your own discretion. I can honestly say that Spirit Jump is like chicken soup for your soul!

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

some truly miraculous ways! The way they pull together and spread the word of those in need and then work to make a genuine, positive difference in that person's life is an inspiration!

I think Spirit Jump is a wonderful program. It helps people with cancer have hope, and it brightens someones spirit. I know it had mine, even though I dont have cancer. I wish i knew about Spirit Jump when my sister in law was sick with cancer. It would of gave her more hope and her family. There was no cure for her cancer, and she passed last year.

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

In some of the Jumpees messages and how it touched them.

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

Try to get more Spirit Jumpers.

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

Hearing the Jumpees stories and comments about how Spirit Jump touched them.

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

I havent met them in person, but online they seem very caring and thoughtful.

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

Bring more hope and happiness to people with cancer, and help them fight even more.

Ways to make it better...

I like the organization the way it is. Maybe if more people became Spirit Jumpers, then it would be better.

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

There are not enough Spirit Jumpers, but I plan on making it known to people I know, and try to get them to become a Spirit Jumper.

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

Spirit Jump is a wonderful organization that Im very proud to be a part of.

Spirit Jump is a wonderful organization that gives cancer patients, or people with close family or friends with cancer, a brief respite from their battle in the form of a gift. Something so simple but so comforting. To receive a small present, card or trinket from someone out there you never met, but who is now fighting the fight with you, makes the world of difference to so many. Support SpiritJump in any way you can" become a Spirit Jumper, donate something to be sent to a Spirit jumpee, send a card to someone who needs their spirits lifted, donate money to the org, give a raffle item to be used to raise funds. There are so many ways you can help please go to www.spiritjump.org today and get involved. I donated a raffle item and spoke to the director of Spirit Jump, Meaghan, on the phone. She is a lovely, dedicated person. Both of the founders of Spirit Jump have fought their own battle with cancer. They provide a unique insight into how to jump someone's spirits.

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

so many ways it is hard to choose just one. The comments left from the individuals who got their spirit jumped, prove that this organization is helping countless people from all over.

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

Step down and let the founders take over. They are doing an excellent job.

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

Getting involved with Spirit Jump is a selfish act. I might be donating something to them but the satisfaction I get in return from knowing I did something to help makes it so worth it.

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

Energetic Warm Compassionate tuned-in Amazing

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

Help so many more people all over the world. And also, if this org had 10 million bucks? 10 Million dollars would go directly to servicing cancer patients or families of those with cancer.

Ways to make it better...

My experience could not have been better.

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

Exposure...We need to get the word out about this organization and get more folks involved.

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

The process to join Spirit Jumpers is painless. The directions and steps you take are clearly and concisely laid out for you. Any possible question you could ask, has already been spelled out and answered. Very organized and user-friendly website.
