Last week,we brought you the story of Safyre Terry, an eight year old girl with a special Christmas wish. Now we are delighted to report that her wish has come true!
Safyre was orphaned in a house fire two years ago, and sustained horrific burns to 75% of her body. With so much to want for, all Safyre requested this festive season was a Christmas card or two.
Now Safyre has 300 000 Christmas cards! In response to her aunty’s Facebook request, Safyre has now received well-wishes all over the world. The local postmaster said this was the most mail received for one individual ever!
Safyre’s aunt, Liz Doler, said the pair have been overwhelmed by this immense public support. “I’ve cried so many happy tears, I think I’m going into dehydration”, Ms Dolder said.
“She’s my reason, I knew that when she was saved from the fire… Never in our wildest dreams did we think that she’d bring the world together over Christmas cards”.
In addition, over 8 000 people have donated to a campaign for Safyre and her extended family. Together, they have raised more than $300 000 for her medical care and living needs.
Did you or someone you know send Safyre a Christmas card? Isn’t it lovely that her wish has been granted by so many people?
