Spirit Jump
August 1, 2009

Spirit Jump is such a worthy organization! Helping to boost the spirits of people fighting cancer, letting them know that other people care about them and what they are going through, can help those people better muster their own inner strengths to keep on going. This sincere, enthusiastic, and well organized non profit changes lives!

The Great!

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

emails written by people who have benefited first hand from the support offered to them.

Ways to make it better...

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

continue to work hard to get ourselves known in the community.

More feedback

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

the enthusiasm AND organizational skills of the coordinators. Too often people have one or the other.

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

dedicated, responsible, with first hand experience.

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

reach out to hospital social workers across the country, connecting patients with volunteers to provide support with cards and small gifts, such as reading materials, videos, knitting supplies, whatever may be appreciated.

Ways to make it better...

since I have to complete this sentence, I am now doing so.

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

exposure and funds. People need to know about them in order to donate to them, and they need donations to provide little spirit boosting gifts to the people fighting cancer they wish to support.

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

I was once mistakenly diagnosed with cancer. Unfortunately, it's a lonely battle, and connections with others, and the greater community, really help.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?

MY ROLE:
General Member of the Public & learned more about this great organization and the people they serve, through their media campaigns and online information, and through conversations with their organizers and volunteers.
