Spirit Jump is such a unique charity that lets anyone with a heart help out. You do not have to have a lot of money just some positive words of encouragement or comfort. It is an awesome feeling to know that a simple card or package of goodies could brighten a cancer patient or their family in what may be one of their darkest moments. I am proud to be part of such an organization. Shellie M.

A charity that allows you to directly send a card...its perfect! Instead of just writing a check this charity has given ME an opportunity to help someone battling cancer.

I am very new to Spirit Jump as a "jumper" and I am so proud to be a part of what Meaghan and her crew are out to accomplish. They are the most sweet selfless women who tirelessly devote their spirit to lift others. Many can give money, even presents, these woman give love.I have the highest regards for them. Please invest a small portion of your life, time or money to help those who so well deserve it. I often say in helping those less fortunate you can only discover your own humanity.

I am very impressed with Spirit Jump and Spirit Jump's founders, Stacy Billow and Meaghan Edelstein. They do a great job of reaching out to and supporting individuals with cancer. Spirit jump also makes it easy to get involved and want to stay involved as a volunteer.

Providing hope and comfort to individuals battling cancer; letting cancer patients know they are not alone in their fight and providing support as they battle this very personal disease is as noble a mission as anyone can aspire to have. Spirit Jump's founders, Stacy Billow and Meaghan Edelstein are two of God's finest.

I am a Spirit Jumper and I couldn't be more proud to be involved with this non-profit group. I think it's wonderful that this group aims to lifts the spirits of those with cancer...too often the emotional health of those who are ill is forgotten and it's just as important as the physical health.

I joined Spirit Jump not too long ago. Unfortunately I have seen several people deal with cancer including my mother with breast cancer. It is quite a taxing disease on everyone involved. What a wonderful idea of helping bring some much needed sunshine into a cancer patient’s life day by sending a card and/or gift.

Spirit Jump is a fantastic way to really make an immediate and meaningful difference in the life of someone battling cancer. I recently donated postage stamps and am currently co-ordinating a fundraiser to benefit Spirit Jump.

I have so loved being a spirit jumper. It warms my heart to be able to lift someone's spirits at the time of great stress, grief and fear. It is so unbelievably simple to do and I am always able to decide how I am going to participate week to week so I can adjust what I do to how much time I have at the moment. All the people Spirit Jump serves are so very deserving of support, love and a little attention that I always feel it is a favor to myself instead of doing something for them. I would hope that some stranger would do this for me if I needed it and I am honored to be that stranger to them. Meaghan and Stacy have given so much I want to support them in every way so they can continue to support people who need a lift. Can you help too?

I found Spirit Jump when I visited Meaghans blog. It is an amazing charity helping to lift peoples spirits when fighting cancer or other illnesses. When you are battling cancer or another disease, you need to keep positive and that is what the charity is all about. SJ has managed to organise help for people just out of hospital as well as putting a smile on peoples faces when they are finding it hard to do so. Although I am fighting breast cancer right now, I decided to become a Spirit Jumper, helping other people is helping me. So, Spirit Jump is a two way thing.

I joined Spirit Jump as soon as I met Meaghan....and it was a moment when I was really needing to contribute to something that dealt so directly with cancer. I lost my grandma four and a half years ago to lung cancer, my friend Michelle 6 months to the day later, and my friend Rachael that following March to brain cancer at the age of 14. I got a small break before finding out my aunt was diagnosed with lung cancer and my friend Donna was diagnosed with kidney cancer. I lost both of them in May 2008 within one week of each other. Until the day of my grandma's diagnosis, I had never experienced cancer in any form of the word. I never knew anyone who had it, never watched anyone fight it, never watched someone I love lose their life to it. After that, my life changed....and it became so important to me to become involved in every way I could to help those fighting cancer and to help spread awareness and increase funding for research. I even built a portion of doing that into my business and became a board member of a foundation in memory of my friend Rachael to help fund brain cancer research. Spirit Jump is a fabulous fabulous program. I cannot tell you what cards, letters, gifts, phone calls, even small random notes did for all those people I watched fight the disease. If I can do that for someone.....give them that boost they need, give them a smile, let them know someone cares.....then I want to do whatever I possibly can to be a part of that!!! It's the most rewarding volunteer program I have EVER been a part of. I thank Meaghan and Stacey every day for turning their battles with the disease into something so positive. I love them both and I love my entire Spirit Jump family. We all rock!! And so do our "jumpees!!"

I recently heard about Meaghan and Stacey and their "beauty full" organisation called Spirit Jump. The minute I learnt about these two remarkable and inspirational ladies who have used their struggles to do so much good for others, I knew I had to jump on board and become an Aussie Spirit Jumper. Their organisation is working from all over the globe and it is such a joy to send cards and gifts from Australia to special men, women and children to help lift their spirits in the face of adversity. To truly make a difference in the world is a remarkable thing and Meaghan and Stacey make a huge difference in the lives of so many people. They provide such a special opportunity for people to touch other people's lives and they do this is in such a friendly, caring and positive way. Elise Ellerman Spirit jumper from Australia

SpiritJump -- its purpose and founders -- is extraordinary. Stacy and Meaghan have transformed their struggles with cancer to bring a message of hope, love, and encouragement to others currently suffering from the illness or its treatment. Their movement is growing because of its easy to implement plan: one volunteer signs up to send a message to another affected by cancer. It is a privilege to serve.

I have decided to put my company name behind the efforts of Spirit Jump. Their mission is simple...offer hope. We are expecting to become abundantly involved after August, upon my return. Please read their blog, check the website. Do the research...you will find caring hearts... and sweet souls.

Great idea and very helpful to those who need a lift to get through tough times dealing with cancer. I am on and off struggling with cancer and wish I had the support of an org like this. For now I can help others through this great service.
