Upper Deck Releases A Card Commemorating Sydney


Sydney was honoured by Upper Deck with her very own trading card. Sydney always dreamt about this since she was a little girl. Upper Deck is a global company so the world is going to get to know Sydney!

We have these cards now and would love to share with you all! All we ask is for a donation of your choice for our Foundation. We can get them to you by mail if you are not close enough. We would love the world to have a Sydney card! Thank you for your continued support!

Donate Now Through!

Welcome to the Sydney Wood Purple Butterfly of Hope Foundation.  Since this Foundation was established in 2014 we have been able to donate to many amazing charities and continue to do so. The charities that are close to our hearts are Food4Kids, LadyBird Animal Sanctuary, Interval House, Eva Rothwell Centre, CityKidz, Comfort Bears and of course the room we have adopted in Sydney’s name at Ronald McDonald House. We hope to add new charities each year. Sydney is a wonderful, beautiful and truly amazing daughter, sister and friend. Her love of life and kindness towards everyone she met made the world a special place to live in. She excelled in school and sports. She is a star pointguard for her basketball team and a speedy striker for her soccer team. Sydney was always about helping people. She wanted to make sure everyone was as happy as her. She would often write, “My life is awesome!!” xo

The Foundation

The foundation has been set up by Sydney's family to preserve her memory and to continue the fight against brain tumors on her behalf. Through fundraising, we are able to support charities that are working on combating the condition, as well as fund athletic achievement projects that benefit children with the same love for sport as Sydney.
