Jones Day- Partner
Want to join a non-profit where you feel like you’re really making a difference? Look no further than Bounce.
There are plenty of places to make a gift, but none as satisfying as Bounce according to Nicole Henning, Partner at Jones Day. “I really identify with the mission and with being part of the actual programs. It’s hard to be passionate about giving if you don’t see where the money goes. Bounce allows me to give sick kids and their families a chance to forget, and I love seeing that happen.”
Bounce offers plenty of ways to help and ensures you feel the difference you make. “If you donate tickets to Bounce It Forward™ you receive photos from the family having fun at the event and a note. The kids’ comments are hilarious!” notes Nicole.
Recalling the Bounce Bash™ Halloween Party sponsored and hosted by Jones Day at their downtown offices, Nicole said, “This event more than any other, brings our office together. It’s something every single person can get behind. Our impact really hit me when I overheard a family talking amongst themselves say ‘I can’t believe someone that has all of this would share it with us.’”
According to Nicole, the Halloween party also shows that Bounce doesn’t just provide respite for families: it brings joy to the children as well. It gives them something to look forward to, outings full of fun and real friendship, and amazing memories to look back on with a huge smile. “One of our Bounce kids isn’t verbal, but her mother can communicate well enough to understand what costume her daughter would like. Mom works on that costume for months. It allows her to connect and enables her to give her daughter a chance to participate in Halloween, just like all the other kids.”
If you want to have an impact, Bounce is for you. “Making the families happy is so rewarding; it feels good to show someone cares and wants to help them be the best they can.”
