Sa’fyre Terry, the little girl who’s been making news lately with her request for Christmas cards, has been given a trip to Walt Disney World.
Terry, age 8, of Schenectady, New York, lost her family in an arson fire in 2013. Terry herself was badly burned in her face and lost her right hand and foot. Earlier this month, she asked for Christmas cards to hang on her Christmas tree and a family friend put out the call on Facebook.
She has received 18,000 cards so far and a fundraising account set up for her and her family has already raised $330,000.
In addition, Terry will now be the recipient of a week-long trip to Disney World, courtesy of Baking Memories 4 Kids, a nonprofit group.

Leah grew up in a little farming town in Illinois, right on the Mississippi River. Her Chicago-born husband, David, left the city for her, and they're now raising their three children (Jacob, Jonah and Lydia) just 12 miles from her hometown. As the Senior Editor of the DIS (wdwinfo.com), Leah spends a lot of time writing about, reading about, and discussing Disney. So, it should come as no surprise that one of her family's favorite ways to spend time is going to Walt Disney World and traveling on Disney Cruise Line.
