A young girl's plea for Christmas cards this season has grabbed the heart strings of the internet.

Safyre Terry, now 8, lost her mother, father, sister and two brothers two years ago in a fire that investigators determined was arson, according to a Facebook post.

The girl suffered burns to 75 percent of her body and numerous medical treatments, including the amputation of her right hand and left foot.

For the holidays, she wants enough greeting cards to fill up her gold-colored tree.


Safyre is thrilled we got our first Christmas card. Thank you Aunt Lonnie. Safyre is excited to fill up the card tree. Sending out lots of Holiday cheer to ALL...... FAITH LOVE HOPE ....HAPPY HOLIDAYS
