Christmas is still a few weeks away but one little girl’s Christmas wish has already come true.
All Safyre Terry, a young girl who lost her entire family in an arson attack two years, wanted for Christmas was to get enough cards to put up on her tree. Her family were worried though that they wouldn’t get enough.
In an interview with BuzzFeed News, Safyre’s aunt said the young girl was super excited when they got a tree to hang cards on this Christmas. However, they didn’t know whether they’d be able to fill it like Safyre hoped. So her family sent out a Facebook plea asking for cards to help Safyre’s wish come true, which has since gone massively viral.
Safyre soon began receiving cards from all over the world.
The cards soon began to pile up as this brave little girl began to receive thousands of cards.
She’ll need Santa’s elves to sort through all these boxes!
She’s also received a lot of early Christmas presents.
Including one special bear who came all the way from Hong Kong.
He even came with a special message.
However Safyre’s planning on sending the teddy back home, Safyre’s aunt said, along with “a friend so he is not so lonely on the trip back home”.
We’ve sent our card and encourage you to send your own.
You can send cards to: P.O Box 6126 Schenectady, NY 12306, USA
An online campaign to help support the family has since raised more than $300,000 (£198,002.)
More of a concept than a journalist, Tom Percival was forged in the bowels of Salford University from which he emerged grasping a Masters in journalism.
Since then his rise has been described by himself as ‘meteoric’ rising to the esteemed rank of Social Editor at UNILAD as well as working at the BBC, Manchester Evening News, and ITV.
He credits his success to three core techniques, name repetition, personality mirroring, and never breaking off a handshake.
