5-year-old Schenectady arson victim who lost siblings and father wants only cards for Christmas
Two years ago, an act of arson ripped apart a Schenectady family. Safyre, 5 years old, was the sole survivor of the arson, and she has burns on 75% of her body. She lost her father, 32, her brothers 2 and 11 months, and her sister, 3. The internet has been passing around her story and address lately as she has asked for cards to fill her aunts card tree, since they never have before.
Dolder bought a tree to hang Christmas cards on this year, and Safyre instantly got excited: â€œI canâ€™t wait to fill it up.â€ Dolder said her response was, â€œHoney, thatâ€™s probably not gonna happen. We maybe get 10 cards a year, and the card tree holds 100.â€
Cards can be sent to Safyre Terry, P.O. Box 6126, Schenectady, NY 12306. You can make a donation to her aunt and uncle, who now have custody of Safyre and have recently lost their primary source of income, via YouCaring.
