Girl who Lost Family in Arson Fire Wishes for Cards to fill her Tree

A five-year-old girl’s aunt posted to Facebook asking for Christmas cards to fill a tree for Sa’fyre Terry.

She was severely burned and lost her father and three younger siblings in a fire caused by arson in 2013, according to The Daily Gazette.

In a Facebook message to The Daily Gazette this morning, Sa’fyre’s aunt and caretaker Liz Dolder said everyone has been moved by the response.

“It’s so overwhelming yet so beautiful that people from all over come together to make a difference in her holiday,” Dolder wrote, noting all the horrible things happening in the world today. Such a response, she said, “renews your faith in humanity.”

Sa’fyre is the only child to survive the fire.

Cards can be sent to:

Sa’fyre Terry, P.O. Box 6126, Schenectady, NY, 12306.
