Sydney Copeland is 13 years old and has been inspired to help sick children after she read about Jacob, a boy with cancer who donated Pillow Pets to his local hospital for other patients to enjoy.  Sydney followed his lead and in memory of Jacob, created “Jacob’s Wish” to collect Pillow Pets and donations for Dayton Children’s.  This year, Sydney collected 105 Pillow Pets and $1,055 to purchase new red wagons for the hospital!  Past ambassador, Justin Skinner, was on hand to accept the donation along with Karen Muller, child life manager.
