Huggable Hope - Buttercup Pillows

Buttercup is a 4-year-old corgi from Mooresville, North Carolina who can no longer walk due to a ruptured spinal disc and severe hip dysplasia. Thanks to her special wheelchair, Buttercup is living life to the fullest and proving that there is hope in the midst of heartbreak.
Buttercup’s family wants to share her message of joy and determination in a huggable version of her!
We partnered with Illinois-based Lifelike Pillows ( to develop a cuddly, 14-inch, American-made pillow featuring a picture of Buttercup in her special wheelchair on the front, and an inspirational saying on the back. We would like to get these special pillows into as many hospitals, nursing facilities, and other organizations that serve people in need; however, we need your help to raise the funds needed to purchase this huggable symbol of hope!
