Jones Day- Partner
Nicole finds that Bounce not only inspires a giving heart in herself, but others as well.
“Bounce is a dose of therapy – families with real problems handle them with such grace and dignity. They make the best of their situation and help each other – what great perspective and inspiration!”
Leaders across Chicagoland value Bounce Children’s Foundation, and the lasting difference it makes to both to those served and to those who help. Nicole Henning, Partner at Jones Day, is one such leader.
There are plenty of places to volunteer, but none as engaging in her eyes. “I really identified with the mission and being part of the actual programs. It’s hard to be passionate if you can’t see the end result. I love seeing Bounce impact peoples’ lives.”
Want your employees to come together around a common goal? Bounce is the answer. It’s team-building in a way that just giving money can’t be. Reflecting on the Jones Day sponsored and hosted Halloween Party, Nicole concluded: “This event, more than any other, brings the office together. It’s something every single person can get behind.”
Nicole has personally found a great sense of well-being from Bounce. “When you watch someone clean out their child’s trac tube with such love and care every 20 minutes, you’re amazed that they can also be having such a good time at a Bounce Bash™. Without fail, it makes you smile. It’s a great feeling to truly make a difference. Bounce allows me to give sick kids and their families a chance to forget. It’s a dose of therapy – families with real problems handle them with such grace and dignity. They make the best of their situation and help each other – what great perspective and amazing inspiration!”
“You will get back so much more than you give. I am not the only one who feels that way,” says Nicole. “We can tell you how much good Bounce does, but to truly understand, get involved and help create events where a child is free to simply be a child.”
