Spirit Jump and Cards 4 Cancer - Will you help deliver hope?

On or about Saturday April 10th, 2010 Spirit Jump and the team leaders around the world will bring bags of cards to their local cancer centers to be given to those battling cancer. Cards can be collected by asking family members, friends, neighbors, schools, youth groups or just about anyway you can think of getting them. Cards can be handmade or store bought and should have a positive message to help JUMP the SPIRIT of someone who is battling cancer.

I have volunteered to be a team leader.
My team name is TEAM ROYCE
in honor of my Grandfather
Frederick E. Royce.

By being a team leader I am committing to delivering the cards that my team members make.

Who are my team members?

Will you help me remind those that need it that they are not alone?

Please CLICK HERE to sign up to be a team member for 
Team Royce 
make cards or buy cards 
 spread the word about this cause
to your friends, family, strangers you meet on the street
blog about it, tweet about it, post it up at your work
have everyone make cards or buy cards
collect the cards from them
and then send or deliver all those cards to me
I will then deliver them to a local cancer center
 and give those in need
a Spirit Jump.

The cards do not have to be store bought, they can be made, they do not have to be fancy, what is important is that each card contain an uplifting message for the person battling cancer and the card, in some way, reflects that it is sent "because of" Spirit Jump. 
**Card Writing Guidelines
-Cards should NOT be gender or age specific
-Please avoid phrases like "Get well soon" as; unfortunately, many will not get better.
-Inspirational messages such as "Thinking of You" or inspirational quotes are good.
-Cards without words are okay too-sometimes a drawing can raise someone's spirits.

If you're interested in being a team member go ahead and sign up through the Cards4cancer's blog....make sure you sign up under Team Royce

Then, leave me a comment that you have signed up as a team member and start working on making, getting and collecting cards.

I will send you my address when you are ready to mail the cards to me.  You can send them to me as they come in to you or wait and collect them and send them all at once.

Please make sure your last mailing goes out by April 5th so they have time to get to me.  

I'll update in a few weeks to see how we're doing as the cards start to come in.  I know you all are awesome and I know you're going to make this HUGE.

Lets get started!!
