Today is JumpBecause's 3rd Jumpiversary celebration!
We're celebrating with a Potluck for a Cause to benefit the Central Virginia Food Bank.
The vision of the Central Virginia Food Bank (CVFB) is "…that none shall go hungry."
The CVFB is looking for the following donations: non-perishable food items (in cans, boxes, etc.), especially peanut butter; canned tuna, salmon, chicken & ham; canned fruits and vegetables; hot and cold cereals; pasta and rice.
Are there any causes you feel passionately about? Send your Jump for a Cause idea to us at email@example.com!
Jump Because wants to give a shout-out to Chris and his 88 in 888 blog.
In his own words... "I have decided to create an "88 in 888" list, which isn't the usual structure for this type of thing. The reason I chose this is simply because I wanted to choose a significant day to set as the deadline. The day...my 30th birthday! Dun Dun Dunnnnnnnnn!!!! Anyway, "88 in 888" is much less depressing than "Things to do before I'm 30." Anyway, if you couldn't figure it out, this list is comprised of 88 things I want to do in the next 888 days (starting 9/14/2010)."

"I jump in front of the Bean because the airline had lost my luggage on the way to Chicago. Without the heavy luggage, I was free to wander the city without constraint, jumping everywhere." - Sly: www.wherethehellissly.com
"Jumping" from INXS's album "INXS"
A subset of the lyrics from "Jumping"
Say when you get down
Look to your left
Say when you get up
Look to your right
Figure out the puzzle
Make sure the pieces fit tight
All night long
Jump and jump and it's up to you.
