CORRECTION Burned Girl Christmas Cards

Safyre Terry, 8, opens a gift Wednesday, Dec. 9, 2015, at a post office near her home in Rotterdam, N.Y. Safyre, who lost her father and three younger siblings and was burned over 75 percent of her body in a May 2013 house fire, has been receiving cards and gifts from across the country since her custodial aunt posted a photo of her on Facebook with a message saying she’d like to get cards for a Christmas tree display stand. The post has been shared tens of thousands of times, and a crowd funding site has generated more than $177,000 for the family.
