About 2 months ago, Sharprint’s heart was touched by the story of a young boy named Jacob McConahay and his quest to bring happiness to sick and suffering children. After receiving joy and comfort from a pillow pet given to him from his Aunt, Jake set a goal to provide all of his friends at the Riley Hospital with a pillow pet of their own. Jake didn’t end his journey once he reached his goal, but instead raised the bar and set out on a new mission to collect 1 million pillow pets to give to children all over the world.
We wanted to help Jake achieve his goal, so we set out to collect pillow pets to be donated to the Children’s Memorial Hospital in Chicago. The next thing we knew, pillow pets were coming in left and right!!
