Girl Who Lost Family in Fire Gets 350,000 Christmas Cards
By Rebecca Cressman on December 15, 2015
In 2013, Sa’fyre Terry lost her father and three younger siblings in an arson fire which also left her with burns over 75 percent of her body and claimed her right hand and left foot. The now 8-year-old told told her family the only present she wanted for Christmas was cards and that she “couldn’t wait” to fill up a thrift store Christmas tree stand with them. Her aunt, Liz Dolder, didn’t want to get her hopes up, so she simply replied that they might “get a few.”
Hundreds of thousands of cards, letters and packages later, little Sa’fyre has experienced a true Christmas miracle, fueled by social media and made possible by the kindness and generosity of those affected by her story. Thanks to ABC News for the story and update!
