In 2013, Sa’fyre Terry was severely burned in an arson fire that killed her siblings and father, who died while covering her with his body.

Recently, the now 8-year-old told her family the only present she wanted was Christmas cards and that she “couldn’t wait” to fill up a thrift store Christmas tree stand with them.

A family friend posted her wish to social media, and hundreds of thousands of cards, letters, and packages arrived from those affected by her story, including $388,000 in donations for her care.

In one of those packages was the favorite teddy bear of a 5-year-old boy in Hong Kong, who sent it to Sa'fyre with a note that said “Let’s be friends.” The family is sending the teddy bear back to him along with a “friend” so the bear doesn’t get lonely on the long trip.

She’s also received gifts and messages from Michael Buble, Tim Allen (The Santa Claus himself!) the Boston Celtics, the Memphis Grizzlies, and the St. Louis Cardinals, as well as the casts and crews of NCIS: Los Angeles and The Vampire Diaries.

If you’d like to send a card to Sa’fyre, address it to:
