We love Bounce! We have met several great families and made friends we will always be grateful for. Bounce helps our family go to events that we would never be able to go to. These events help us forget our worries for a day. The staff is amazing and very supportive.
As an employee, my favorite part about Bounce is it takes into account what you are interested in learning, not just where your experience lies. They give you opportunities to broaden your horizons and introduce you to new skills. I have learned more from my one semester of interning than I could have sitting in class all year long. And looking at Bounce from a family's perspective; it is unique, it is considerate, and it is generous. I am constantly overwhelmed by the generosity of donors and sponsors who are so invested in this cause that they are willing to come back year after year with more donations. It is always a pleasure joining the families for events to see all those days of hard work pay off in smiles and new memories. Bounce is an incredible organization. I am proud to have been a member and I am eagerly looking forward to their expansion.
Bounce's incredible staff dedicates themselves to creating thoughtful fun, excitement, and adventure for the children and the whole family, and their specific needs. Everyone is so nice to work with, and genuinely care about what they do and what Bounce represents. Once you join Bounce, you're really joining a great community full of love and support.
This is an incredible opportunity for their interns. I am very thankful for what this organization has done for me. I have grown in my skills, knowledge, and experience in Non- Profits. The nonprofit has and will continue to do great things within the community.
Being a Bounce Family has made an incredible impact on our lives. It can be difficult to plan and participate in activities that are appropriate for my son who has significant physical and health issues. Bounce takes care of all of the challenging aspects. We can simply show up and enjoy! The staff is warm and caring, and it has been a pleasure meeting other families who have similar stories. We are so thankful to everyone who makes this organization possible!
After spending literally years inside the hospital with my daughter, who has been in treatment for pediatric cancer, it has been so wonderful to be able to spend time together as a family at awesome events that we would never have been able to go to on our own. We just went on a lunchtime cruise on the Spirit of Chicago at Navy Pier over Memorial Day weekend, and it was fabulous! Thank you so much to Bounce Children's Foundation for giving my daughter and my two sons the opportunity to be able to enjoy life to its fullest!
My name is Shante I have a 14 year old with cerebral palsy. He is in a wheelchair and has never walked. I thought that he wouldn’t be able to enjoy life like normal kids his age; but becoming a member of Bounce House has gave me a new point of view. My son has done more with this organization then I thought he would. This Memorial Day we attended a boat cruise with bounce house and it was amazing. My son enjoyed everything we did that day. He did arts and crafts, did amazing dance moves with the other parents and children, he is still talking about this cruise. Bounce house is the best organization me and my family has ever been apart of. This was the best thing I did when I signed up for the program, and not to mention the awesome bounce kits that they send to families for holidays, they have enough arts and crafts for the whole family. We would like to thank bounce house and all of there volunteers for the awesome job they are doing. Hugs and kisses the Ollie Family
Our Bounce kid is hospitalized frequently. Big brother often worries, and struggles with going to school. After going to a bounce bash he was super excited and couldn’t wait to show this picture of him helping the light guy. Bounce not only helps the bounce kid but also the siblings. They always go above and beyond to know the bounce kid and their siblings. We are forever grateful for everything Bouce does for our family, but especially for all the smiles and laughter all kids should have.
Bounce has provided our family with opportunities we would not have been able to have otherwise. It's given our boys something to look forward to do with their sister outside of hospitalizations and doctors appointments. It's created memories we will be able to smile about for a long time. THANK YOU BOUNCE!!!
As a volunteer here at Bounce, I have seen the impact it has had not only on the children it serves but the families too. This foundation creates a safe space for the families to bond with one another, and for the children to be children again. No child should have to deal with any of the disorders, diseases, or complications that many of them experience. I love volunteering with them and consider it one of my favorite things I have ever done. To see the smiles on the children's faces alongside all of the giggles and laughs, this would brighten anyone's day.
Since joining Bounce, it has been life-changing for me to witness the importance of bringing some sense of normalcy into the lives of chronically ill children and their families. It hit me at my first Bounce Event this past weekend: I saw the smiles on the faces of the children and their families, and how happy they were to live life normally for a few hours. Their minds shifted away from their illness, and instead to the joy they had on that Sunday afternoon, running around and having fun like every child deserves.
The organization has been wonderful on our recent journey with a child with a terminal illness and her two shattered siblings. We have enjoyed the activity boxes they sent and 2 of us had a wonderful day in the City attending a Cubs game courtesy of them. We are looking forward to the camraderie of meeting other families in a similar struggle.
Bounce Foundation is a great organization supporting families with children with special needs. They sponsor events that educate us and allow us to interact with other families that face similar challenges. Our children are provided with fun entertainment in a safe and caring environment. We love the Bounce Kits which provide us with hands on activities that engage the whole family.
Bounce constantly makes a difference in our daily struggle with chronically ill kids. We love seeing a smile on our son everytime he received a special package from Bounce.
Love going to the special events that Bounce especially organizes.
We are so grateful to be part of this incredible no profit organization.
Thank you Bounce! And thanks to all the beautiful volunteer.
They communicate so clearly. Their events are super fun and easy to be a part of. Their hearts are in the right place. My children and I would never have been able to do the things we\u2019ve done without Bounce.
We had a great time at the roller skating event! We were well serviced, the people were extremely kind and ready to offer their help. My sister (she has cerebral palsy) had a great time, the smile on her face is indescribable. Thank you Bounce!
From the perspective of a Bounce sibling, it’s been amazing to see my little brother attend such incredible events and make new friends through Bounce. The staff and volunteers have been extremely supportive and they make family time special for us! In fact, my positive interactions with Bounce led me to seek out a larger role and now I’m volunteering with the organization. My appreciation for Bounce continues to grow every day because I see how much joy it brings to chronically-ill children and their families! I am very grateful to be a part of the Bounce family and I’m excited to see Bounce continue to impact so many lives!
Our family loves BOUNCE!! Bounce helps our family go to events that we would never be able to go to. We have met some great families that we have become friends with. These events help us be able to enjoy family time with our boys and forget all our worries for a day. The staff is amazing and very supportive!!!
