Girl Burned in Fire That Killed Her Family Desperately Wants Cards for Christmas Tree
A little girl who endured a horrible tragedy wants people to spread the love this holiday season.
Sa’fyre Terry suffered burns over 75% of her body and had to have her right hand and left amputated after a 2013 arson fire in her house killed her family. She also faces years of skin graft operations as a result of the inferno.
Sa’fyre, who now lives with her aunt and uncle in Rotterdam, NY, is asking for people to send cards that she can use to decorate her Christmas tree.
Cards have already started pouring in, much to the delight of Sa’fyre’s aunt, Liz Dolder:
It’s magical. You always hear about those horrible things happening. And for this to happen — it restores your faith in humanity.”
Cards aren’t the only thing that have arrived, either. There’s a fundraising page for Sa’fyre that hadn’t been noticed by too many people that has since generated $110,000 in donations, making for one very happy family, as can be seen on her Facebook page:
And there’s even more good news. Sa’fyre and her family are being sent to Disney World, courtesy of the charity Making Memories 4 Kids.
