Our Trip To Vegas





As many of you know Spirit Jump had the honor and privilege to attend both Blogworld and Sitscation in Las Vegas.  It was an amazing experience and we met so many wonderful people, organizations and business.


Our founder, Meaghan Edelstein, was invited by Blogworld to be a speaker on the Kick Cancer's Ass Panel along with Jay Scott of Alex's Lemonade Stand, Drew Olanoff from Blame Drew's Cancer and Natalie Lent of Stand Up To Cancer. It was an amazing opportunity for Meaghan to meet some very influential, inspiring and brilliant people who fighting to bring cancer awareness to the forefront of peoples minds and hearts.

 

As many of you know Spirit Jump was also invited to Blogworld as 1 of 10 winners of the Name Your Cause contest held on Twitter.  This gave us an opportunity to have a booth at the Expo on Friday 10-1:30 where we gave out "swag" bags and encourage everyone around to sign up and become a Spirit Jumper.  All the items in our "swag" bags were donated by Spirit Jumpers like Live Life Solid, Do Life Now, Pinwheel Girls, Destiny, Amy B.- THANK YOU!




Spirit Jump was also involved in a charity contest called Charity Smackdown put on by PayPal & Ebay. We were the heavy underdogs and won by only $30. We could not have done this without all our amazing supporters who made this win possible! As the winners of Charity Smackdown Paypal will donate $2,000.00 to Spirit Jump!


Spirit Jump knew right away that we had to donate some of our winnings back to the other charities.  Each one of these charities raises money for important causes and were represented by amazing people who we fell in love with.  So, when Spirit Jump receives its $2,000 prize from PayPal we will be donating some of that to the following charities:



Here are some photos of the Spirit Jump team with some of the above charities:

 Spirit Jump was also very honored to be invited to SITSCATION and man did we have a blast with these ladies!





The amazing ladies at SITS threw a fabulous fundraiser party for us last Friday at the Venetian and it was so much fun!  I (Meaghan) met many of the women I have been looking up to for the past year and a half I have been blogging, I danced my butt off AND SITS raised over $900.00 for us that night!!!! This was just more than we could have ever imagined and for that we will be eternally grateful!


To top it all off SITS also hosted an online auction that very day and will be hosting a second one this Friday. We have been in such desperate need for funding and these ladies really pulled through for us....THANK YOU!

Spirit Jump was part of a Historical moment


Some of you may have seen the #beatcancer over the past few days.  This was an attempt by an organization called Everywhere to set a Guinness World Record for distribution of the largest mass message through social media. Four charities were chosen to be a part of this record setting attempt and Spirit Jump was one of the four which also included Stand Up To Cancer, Alex's Lemonade Stand and Bright Pink.  Along with setting a record over $70,000 was raised to be shared between the four charities involved.


We at Spirit Jump would like to extend a huge thank you to MillerCoors, Ebay/PayPal and Everywhere for making this possible and for including us in this important record setting message #beatcancer.

  2. One of my favorite saying is "You are defined by what you give." Sharing your portion of the Charity Smackdown with the other nonprofits says everything about you and your organization -- AWESOME(NESS)!

    We are so honored to have met you, Bryan and the rest of the Spirit Jump team at BlogWorld. Keep up the amazing work that you do.

  3. Meaghan - I have told so many people about you and Spirit Jump!

    I think the untapped opportunity is with PTA's and Service Organizations like Girl Scouts and Daisy's.
