Spirit Jump
July 29, 2009

To be a part of Spirit Jump as a "jumper" is an honor. I look forward to getting the list of those in need of encouragement every week. Spirit Jump has proven to be a heartfelt organization who really cares. I love the fact that they make it so easy to participate and never ever make me feel like I have to donate lots of money, etc. I choose what I want to send and who to send it to. I am a 13 year stage IV cancer survivor. One of the brightest moments of each long day in bed recovering from chemo and intensive radiation treatments was when the mail came. I still remember (and saved) ALL of the cards that I received during that time. Thank you Spirit Jump founders for coming up with such an AWESOME idea! May you be blessed in your journey!!

The Great!

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

I'm new to the organzation, so I'd have to say the results have been in the weekly updates and emails to let me know how the folks are doing that I am reaching out to. That is such a nice follow up.

Ways to make it better...

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

have these 2 founders run it for me.

More feedback

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

everyone's enthusiasm to make a difference. And the founders make it easy to participate!

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

friendly, informative, uplifting and very responsive.

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

reach a lot more people that need encouragement.

Ways to make it better...

I had found out about it sooner.

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

getting the word out. We can all help by telling those we know and putting the logo on our twitter, facebook and LinkedIn pages to help advertise this awesome organization.

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

you should send in the names of people that you know who are battling cancer and need a lift. And/or join the team and become a spirit jumper yourself. Send a card, a gift or whatever moves you to encourage someone who is battling for their life.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
