Once upon, a time there was a little girl named Zoe blessed with parents that have a bouncy business. One day, because she could bounce so much, she wished that ”all kids could bounce all the time!” Of course, we do our best in our everyday business to make sure kids all over the valley bounce in a clean and safe bounce houses. But what about those with parents who can’t afford a bounce house birthday package? How could we help our little girl fulfill her wish? That is how we came up with Zoe’s wish… a bounce house birthday party package for the children that couldn't have one.
We have decided to brighten the lives of less fortunate children with the present of a birthday party package. We are not affiliated with any organizations and hope that the community will answer the call and come together to help us pinpoint and help the less fortunate among us. So this year (for starters) we are going to dedicate one birthday party a month, free of charge, for a selected child. The package will include a bounce house and a cotton candy machine with 60 servings delivered to the child's address. We are not a faceless corporation. Our names are Dino and Yvonne and you can reach us anytime at (602) 481-5867 or email us. Let's get involved as a community. A community always proves itself to be a powerful force when stirred into action. Here is our opportunity to use that power and do something really good.
you ever charge anything for these packages?
A. We are committed to 12 free of charge birthday packages in 2010. If anyone wants to sponsor a child above and beyond our dedicated parties, we will meet half way and absorb 50% of the cost ($100.00) and we will do this 12 additional times. That is a donnation of $200.00 to $300.00 each month and a projected average of at least $3000.00 in 2009. Jump Around is not a non profit organization. We do this to give back to the community.
Q. How do I nominate a child?
A. It is important, for the children we are committed to, that we avoid scam artists of all kinds. We want our parties to be dedicated to the less fortunate. Therefore, the only way to nominate a child is to do it through a reputable organization.
Q. Does this mean a private citizen can’t contact you?
A. Unfortunately, we can’t donate through private citizens. Next thing you know, everybody and there brother would try getting a free party for themselves or relatives. However, if you know someone in need, contact your church or the organization of your choice and have them contact us. We will work out the details together.
Q. How far ahead do should we contact you?
A. Please be mindful. Remember birthdays are important. So act as fast as you can so we can coordinate, schedule and help the parents plan the event.
Q. How far do you deliver?
A. Because it is our first year doing this, we will limit our deliveries to the East Valley of the Phoenix metro area (except a few rare occasions). Next year, we are aiming for the entire Phoenix metro area.
Q. Can I give a gift?
A.You already have but if you feel compelled to give a physical gift and you are not going to be at the party, we will pick it up and deliver it for you.
Q. How long is the party?
A. We leave that up to the parents discretion. However, we usually pickup about 6 hours later.
Q. I want to volunteer! How can I help?
A. Spread the word! The more people hear about us, the more donations for the kids. If you want to help out the day of just show up and help at the party.
Q. Can my church / organization nominate more than one child?
A. Yes, but each organization can only have one free party and one half price. After that, they will have to sponsor at market value. Businesses are expected to sponsor at market price and can write this off. If you have any questions about how this works, please ask your tax advisor.
Q. I’m a corporation. How can I help?
A. Contact Dino or Yvonne. You can donate cash, gifts, or food, and as an extra thank-you you will be recognize you on this page. We don’t have corporate sponsorship program but we can discuss how you can help (602) 481 -5867.
