It’s not often that people lose their entire families in a tragedy, but for Safyre Terry, that’s exactly what happened. Two years ago, a suspected arsonist burned down her home, killing her mother, father, sister, and two brothers. Safyre was the only person to survive the fire, but she is scarred from her head to her feet. She also lost a hand and a foot in the process.

This Christmas, Safyre is asking for a little joy in her life. Since she has no family, she is asking people to send her some Christmas cards to bring her a bit of cheer.

Safyre Terry is in need of some Christmas joy this year after losing her entire family in a fire.

After losing her family and going through multiple surgeries, Safyre received a ton of community support.

The little girl was given a Christmas tree that holds holiday cards. Even though she doesn’t have any immediate family left, people have taken to the Internet to ensure that she gets a whole bunch of cards this year.

(function(d, s, id) { var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0]; if (d.getElementById(id)) return; js = d.createElement(s); js.id = id; js.src = “//connect.facebook.net/en_US/sdk.js#xfbml=1&version=v2.3″; fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, fjs);}(document, ‘script’, ‘facebook-jssdk’));

Cards can be sent to Safyre at P.O. Box 6126, Schenectady, NY 12306, USA. Make a difference this holiday season and send a Christmas card to someone in need.

Jasmine is out of this picture because she has pink eye and I didn’t want her in the school around other children.
