"[This] is my oldest son jumping from a swing while our oldest daughter looks on with a look of such awe on her face. This photo looks like the landing must have been painful, but it wasn’t. My son is so athletic and daring he landed on both feet and did it again." -Katrina
"We jump because 'my chick's bad!' (Thank you Ludacris!)" - Dana, Bre, Sally & Katy

Jump for whatever
you're thankful for!
We at Jump Because will be taking a break over the next few days to give thanks with our friends and family. We'd love to hear from you folks about what you're thankful for this Thanksgiving.
Jump for whatever you're thankful for - and then send those jumping photos and thankful jumping stories to us at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Have a Happy Thanksgiving!

And I howled at my ma in the driving rain,
But it's all right now, in fact, it's a gas!
But it's all right. I'm Jumpin' Jack Flash..."
