I have spent my last few summers working as the Head Lifeguard by the pool in Camp Simcha. Some people may think that being a Lifeguard is all about looking cool, wearing sunglasses and working on your tan… But not at Camp Simcha. Here in Camp Simcha, being a Lifeguard is so much more:
To help a camper with prosthetic legs dive off a diving board…
To help a kid who is paralyzed from the waist down go down a water slide…
To help a child with no arms learn to swim in the deep…
To take a camper who is in the middle of undergoing chemo for his own private night swim the night before treatment…
To help a blind camper go swimming for the first time in his life…
To wheel a handicapped camper down the ramp in a waterproof wheelchair…
These are just some of things that put meaning into your summer, when you have the greatest job, in the greatest camp, with these special kids. I may just be Head Lifeguard, but to be guarding the lives of heads without hair …. is the greatest honor of all.

Chai Lifeline is a wonderful organization that provides year–round emotional, social, and financial support to more than 4,500 children and their families every year. Chai Lifeline´s programs and activities change their lives forever, returning joy and hope and enabling them to live full and happy lives despite the presence of illness. Its most famous program is Camp Simcha and its sister camp, Camp Simcha Special. Every year these two camps offer 450 kids a chance to forget about illness and just be kids again. To get a better idea of what Chai Lifeline does for families, please watch the videos below. I know they will touch your heart the way they touched mine.

So please, push the donate button and help me put smiles on the faces of sick children. Let's do this together! Let's make dreams come true.

Best - Yonah
