A while ago I posted about becoming a Spirit Jumper. Since then we have participated in 3 Spirit Jumps. A Spirit Jump can be as simple as send a card or sending along a little gift to a person battling cancer, to lift their spirits. This time Lulu picked out the gift (a sticker book) and wrote a card to a 4 year old girl named Grace. "Grace was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia in June 2008, two days after her 3rd birthday. Although Grace is in remission, she still has to take chemo at home everyday and goes to a clinic every two weeks for blood work." I thought it would be more meaningful if Grace received a card from someone her own age.
Spirit Jump is a wonderful organization started by two cancer survivors. See the original post here. There is no long term commitment. If you sign up to be a Spirit Jumper you will receive occasional emails describing the people who need a lift. You decide if you want to send a card or gift to them or not. We try to do one once a month. Especially if there is a child in need of a lift. So if you would like to brighten someones day -- think about becoming a Spirit Jumper!
