Video Of The Week - New Yorkers Relive Childhood By Jumping On Beds

By

Most adults are too consumed with their responsibilities at work and home to even think about taking a few minutes to relive simple childhood pleasures like jumping on beds. But place one in front of them and voila, they will instantly be able to recall their inner child.

That's what Chai Lifeline an international non-profit organization whose mission is to bring joy to children that are suffering from life-threatening or lifelong diseases, did for New York residents during the last week of November. The organization's volunteers placed beds in various parts of the city and then challenged passersby to be "a kid again", by jumping on them.

After some hesitation, adults of all ages obliged and judging from the smiles and squeals of joy, had the time of their lives. This holiday, see if you can encourage the adults in your life to do the same and watch them transform into carefree kids again!

                    even though i'm a kid i'm not allowed to jump on my bed so I really want to do that or maybe I can convince my parents to let me jump on the bed at home.
