If you haven’t heard of Spirit Jump, it’s a FANTASTIC charitable organisation created by two wonderful ladies in the US.
From their website:
“Spirit Jump is a program that directly connects the gift giver with a person battling cancer.
If you have a shop, artistic abilities or even an extra card in your drawer and you want to give it to a person in need, send us an email that you want to be a Spirit Jumper at firstname.lastname@example.org We will then connect you directly with a person in need, or we can give you a list of names, a brief description of what their particular cancer battle is and you can choose. When the match is made, We’ll give you that persons mailing address and then it’s up to you to send the gift. It’s a simple.
If you decide to be a Spirit Jumper you will be overwhelmed with the joy and warmth you feel when giving a gift. Additionally, every Spirit Jumper is welcome to write a post on our website and tell our many readers about your shop, blog or website. You may include links, photos and any information you want to be featured on the site. We encourage you to also include why you decided to donate, who you donated to and maybe even a photo of what you donated. This will be wonderful exposure for your shop, blog, website and you will be lifting someone’s spirit, WIN, WIN!
Want to be a Spirit Jumper just email: email@example.com
Need a spirit jump or know someone who does just email: firstname.lastname@example.org”
I first heard about Spirit Jump through a post on CraftsForum and I didn’t hesitate to join. These gifts and gestures – no matter how small – really DO make a difference and I’m truly honoured to be a part of the project.
