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.
When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
Donor & I'm just trying to let people know I care; one at a time.
