Burn survifor FACEBOOK Safyre Schenectady Super Survivor

Thousands of people have fulfilled an eight-year-old’s wish for Christmas cards — and also donated $300,000 for her future. According to the Good News web site, Safyre Terry survived an arson attack on her upstate New York home two years ago that killed the rest of her family. She has endured 20 surgeries since then. When her aunt, Liz Dolder, brought home a tree that could hold dozens of Christmas cards, the little girl wanted to fill every spot. Dolder mentioned her nieces request on her Facebook page and it took off from there. Hundreds of people spread the word about Safyre’s request. Focus on the Family’s Jim Daly even shared about it in his blog. Since then more than 200,000 cards and 4,000 packages have arrived for the holiday-loving orphan.
