Children's Miracle Network


In Spring 2002, ZBT accepted Children's Miracle Network as it's national philanthropy. Since then, chapters and colonies of ZBT have partnered with their local Children's Miracle Network Hospitals to raise thousands of dollars each year. Each year, events like ZBT's original Get on the Ball event raises awareness of new Brothers and college students across the nation. It is through this event and others across the country that Children's Miracle Network can provide necessities that children need. This non-profit orginization is dedicated to saving and improving the lives of children by raising funds for children's hospitals across North America.

Chai Lifeline


Chai Lifeline was founded in 1986 by one very dynamic and talented man, Rabbi Simcha Scholar. Chai Lifeline began with its pilot program, a summer camp for children suffering from cancer, known as Camp Simcha. The camp provided resources, staff and an environment exactly tailored to suit the special needs of these sick kids.

Camp Simcha was an overwhelming success. Not only did it offer the opportunity for seriously ill children to have the time of their lives, it provided beleaguered families with a much-needed respite of several weeks.

The overwhelming response to Camp Simcha was an indication of the tremendous need for such services all year round, not only for cancer victims but for children suffering from all types of serious illness. Chai Lifeline evolved rapidly, identifying the various needs of ill children and their families, and creating the programs to satisfy those needs. Today, Chai Lifeline is an international organization with four regional branches in the United States, associate branches in Israel and Europe, and twenty-four separate programs. Chai Lifeline has earned the acclaim of doctors, therapists, and community leaders, as well as the unending gratitude of thousands and thousands of children and families.
