I found Spirit Jump via Twitter. Being a "jumper" with Spirit Jump has been one of the most rewarding experiences I have ever had with a charity. I know who I am touching and I know their story so it is a much more personal experience than simply writing a check to a charity.

The Great!

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

Continue on the path they have begun and try to expand to help as many people as possible.
