Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Cancer

Mission: The mission of Spirit Jump is to provide hope and comfort to the many men, women and children battling cancer, one gift at a time. Spirit Jump strives to let each and every cancer fighter know that they are not alone in their battle and that there are people behind them as they fight. Spirit Jump’s goal is to help cancer fighters fight strong by providing uplifting cards and inspirational gifts from our “Jumpers” to help fighters maintain the strength they need every day as they battle this terrible disease. The Amazing Part:. The amazing thing about Spirit Jump is that both the person giving a gift (Jumper) often has their spirit lifted just as much as the person receiving the gift (Jumpee).

Results: We have lifted the spirits of over 150 people battling cancer all over the world.

Spirit Jump is such a wonderful organization that lifts the hearts and spirits of those who are truly in need of support. I am touched to know that there are people out there who genuinely care about others enough - even those who don't know eachother - to reach out and send a little TLC and put a smile on someone's face.

Spirit Jump is an amazing charity with a fabulous goal - to lift up those in need. The organization has a great team of dedicated people working to help this charity grow. Spirit Jump has helped me share the lesson of compassion with my 6-year old daughter.

Spirit Jump is a 5 star organization! As volenteers we get to hear life changing stories of people in a difficult time in their lives and respond with care and compassion. I love to hear the stories about how Spirit Jump helps the Jumpee but the affect it has on the Jumper is amazing as well!

I love being a member of Spirit Jump, where the heart of the matter is the heart matters! I think in this economy especially, it's good to give because even if we don't have money, we can give from our hearts, and that is priceless. I love this charity because they really show us anyone can make a difference, and let everyone know, no matter what they face, they are loved. Spirit Jump is a precious charity. I've had people worry about the people receiving things, but know SJ checks everything out and is trustworthy. It's nice to have that these days!

I love being a Spirit Jumper! It warms my heart to know that I'm bringing a ray of sunshine to people who are experiencing life's toughest storms. I know that it works because I've received thank you cards for my cards. It's an amazing movement and I'm honored to be a part of Spirit Jump!

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!!

Spirit Jump is the most incredible organization I have ever had the privilege to be a part of. The charitable efforts of its founders, Meaghan and Stacy, not only help cancer victims, but uplift the spirits of the people who have answered the Spirit Jump call as well. There is nothing that compares to the “feel good” that comes with helping out another, especially when the chips are really down. Sending cups of kindness to friends in need is what it’s all about, and Spirit Jump affords me that opportunity (right from my own livingroom, no less!). Aside from motherhood, I never felt like I was making a real difference in the world, until Spirit Jump crossed my path. I can’t say thank you enough for this organization. Spirit Jump serves to remind us all that we ALL matter.

I love this organization. What a great way to reach out, especially for those of us who can't afford to donate tons of money. Anyone can send a card to cheer up someone with cancer and we all know family or friends that have battled cancer. The fact that it is run by a cancer survivor just inspires me!

I joined Spirit Jump as a one year survivor of Breast Cancer. I know firsthand how much it means to know that someone is thinking of you, and cheering you on. I also know that not everyone has the support system that I was blessed with. I saw Spirit Jump as a wonderful way to give back. My 10 year old daughter and I have made this an activity we share together. I hadn't expected that we would get as much, if not more out of joining Spirit Jump as the recipients, but we both definitely have. We read the updates together, decide what to send, package up our little gifts together. Janey enjoys addressing the packages, and feels the more stickers and decorations the better, so our gifts arrive wrapped in art. I am so proud of my little girl and the love she puts into Spirit Jump. I know the recipients feel it, and what a wonderful gift for US to be able to lift the spirits of patients and families who are in the same shoes we were in a year ago.

I absolutely LOVE this Charity! In the process of dealing with surgeries and also having several friends and family members fighting cancer as well. It has become my passion to promote it, as well as give to it. It's really a positive and rewarding experience to know that anything I make or send is going to bring a smile to someone's face. I love to hear all the updates and see all the different items that people have sent. Thanks Meaghan for turning me onto it!

I am not quite sure how I found Spirit Jump but it has been such a rewarding experience for me. Sending one of my crocheted hats or other items from my Etsy shop has brought me much happiness. When the call comes that there are people needing jumps ...it can be very emotional reading their stories. Just knowing that there will be a smile on their face when they receive your package makes your heart swell!

Spirit Jump is such a unique organization. It works on the old fashioned principal of people helping people! My brother recently passed away after a long hard fight with kidney cancer. A blog friend of mine told me about Spirit Jump, and I contacted them right away with our story. They hurried and tried to help Mike before he lost his battle. Unfortuantely, we were too late. However, the organization continued to send me encouraging emails after death. I have since become a Spirit Jumper, and am so blessed to be a part!

I had never heard of such an organization as this before and became instantly involved with Spirit Jump. I have such a great feeling of worthiness when I send a card or small gift to someone who is down. My 10 year old son also sends out cards and pictures he has made to some folks. It's an invaluable way for me to teach him that not everyone is as fortunate to have their health and it enables me to show him that being a loving and giving person is so rewarding. I love being a part of this organization and I hope to watch them grow and become even more wonderful!!

I was brought to Spirit Jumpers on a blog. I was so moved by the stories involved that I became an instant fan. I have done a few jumps and I cannot explain how it feels to be able to reach out to people who sometimes just need a kind word or to know that someone cares. Sometimes it is very difficult to read the stories, but it also makes me greatful for what I have in my life. Thank you for this great organization. Anne Miller

Spirit Jump has a simple but important mission. The organization helps lift the spirits of those suffering from cancer with cards, small gifts, and well wishes. These tokens of support, sent by a network of volunteers, let cancer patients know that they are not alone in their fight and have a community around the country and beyond that are invested in their recovery and well being. Spirit Jump's clear objectives and clever use of social media have helped the organization grow quickly and develop a group of dedicated volunteers. Its mission is driven by an enthusiastic and devoted leadership. Spirit Jump is poised to continue growing and touching more lives of those with cancer.

Spirit Jump is a fantanstic charity organization! You do what you can when you can and what you can afford, wheather it be simple or something elaborate. It is so appreciated, not only by the person you are sending to but by the women who run this fine charity! I have been involved as a volunteer for the last 4 months, and I am so thankful that I can help others (men, women & children) who are facing some of the hardest times in their lives. SPIRIT JUMP YOU ARE AWESOME!
