Children's Miracle Network

Children’s Miracle Network® raises funds and awareness for 170 member hospitals, 13 of which are in Canada. Donations stay local to fund critical treatment and healthcare services, purchase pediatric medical equipment, support research, and create healing environments for kids and families. Together with national and local fundraising partners and programs, Children’s Miracle Network is dedicated to raising funds and improving healthcare for children across Canada. Every single dollar raised through Children’s Miracle Network goes directly to the local children’s hospital foundation in the community where the money is donated. Since our partnership with Children’s Miracle Network began in 2014, The Brick has helped raise over $15 million for children’s hospitals in Canada.


  • The Brick is deeply committed to children’s hospitals across Canada. During our ten-year partnership with Children’s Miracle Network (CMN), which began in 2014, The Brick has implemented initiatives such as Brickley Bear sales, New Year 5k run and others. These initiatives have allowed The Brick to work alongside Canada’s 13 children’s hospitals to truly go the distance for kids across Canada.

  • Care to Share Day, our signature campaign initiated in 2021, features tiered savings and donation opportunities. What’s more, every employee in our organization gets involved to help fundraise and bolster support for children’s hospitals.

  • The Brick doesn’t stand still in its work on behalf of children’s hospitals – it continues to innovate and optimize its fundraising approaches to enhance performance over time. Our employee ambassador program, aimed to support our fundraising efforts, along with training and other engagement opportunities, helps ensure our partnership with children’s hospitals is always at the forefront of our organization.

  • Claire


    To her family, Claire is unstoppable. She has cerebral palsy and while she is unable to move on her own or speak, innovative, donor-funded technology called Brain Computer Interface (BCI) at the Alberta Children’s Hospital is helping her use her mind to do things her body cannot. When she’s not making milkshakes or playing games using BCI, or also communicating through eye gaze technology, you can find her on her Trexo Robotics walker, which helped her walk down the aisle as a flower girl. She’s recently started her own business selling products she made using BCI! She also loves Moana and making new friends.

Enduring years of pain and sickness due to sickle cell anemia, she began treatment at CHEO upon arriving in Canada at age 9, when her pain crises worsened.

Charity Day

The Brick always strives to support our community, which is why we pledged to donate a portion of the proceeds from our sales during our Care to Share Day to Children’s Miracle Network – and we haven’t looked back since! Inspired by this successful endeavour, we set aside dedicated time each year to donate proceeds towards this incredible charity.

The CMN Charity Day in 2023 was exciting for everyone; Brick locations from coast to coast set up tables, baked treats and blew up balloons. Our staff volunteered to decorate the stores and our corporate partners stepped up to help contribute funds. We spoke with each of our valued customers, telling them about the amazing children we’ve helped over the years thanks to Children’s Miracle Network.

Our Burlington location accepted an amazing donation from one of our valued customers for $10,000! We are extremely grateful to all our customers who help support children’s hospitals.

From Victoria to Halifax, The Brick works together to help fund cutting-edge research, build family-friendly recovery spaces and support the healthcare needs of every Canadian child.

At the end of this one-day blitz in 2023, we raised a total of $496,000.

This donation would never have been possible without the kind souls and generous hearts of our customers and partners – we can’t say thank you enough!
