Jump! is a nonprofit organization that helps seniors achieve what’s left on their bucket list, and highlights those special seniors who continue to live extraordinary and inspirational lives.
What’s on your bucket list?
The first thing to remember is, there are no bad bucket list items and everyone should have something on their bucket list! Once you decide to participate you have a friend for life, just ask Estelle Eisenberg. In 2011, Estelle was the first participant who fulfilled her dream by skydiving on her 90th birthday. Since then, we’ve picked out the cake and helped blow out the candles on each of her birthdays. We want you to be a part of Jump! so the dreams you fulfill become moments that we can celebrate together & forever!
Each “Jumpisode” will forever be a part of your legacy. What we create are 4-6 minute videos that you can share with your children and grandchildren. Why are these so important, because in addition to your immediate family, seniors across the country get to witness how many options they have when it comes to fulfilling a bucket-list wish. Whether it happens on a plane, a train, a truck or a race car, what matters is how your story will inspire other seniors to do the same.
There’s something for everyone, just ask Lois! At 96-years-young, Lois Goodman fulfilled her dream by making over 400 blankets for Children’s hospitals and Homeless Shelters in Minneapolis, MN. The day she got to meet the recipients of her blankets, in her words, was one of the greatest days of her life!
Aside from our BOD, we are blessed with having a strong & passionate advisory board with members already established in the Senior Enrichment sector. We thank each of them for their continual efforts to strengthen Jump!
Ways to Give
People give for many different reasons and in 2015, US citizens gave nearly 375 billion dollars to charities, which was the highest charitable giving year in our country’s history.
In addition to writing a check or using our PayPal link, you can also make a charitable bequest through your Estate. We are fortunate to be working with the Desert Law Group (http://www.leelawyers.com) in Indian Wells, CA, who can answer any questions about these planned gifts and other tax-deductible donations.
We thank Kimberly Lee and her staff for offering this free service to anyone looking to donate to Jump!
