SCHENECTADY, N.Y. - A little girl whose father and three siblings died in an arson fire has a simple holiday wish: She wants enough holiday cards to fill up her Christmas tree.
    
Safyre Terry is the sole survivor of the blaze that killed her family two years ago. Safyre, now 8, has endured many surgeries for burns over 75 percent of her body.
    
Her custodial aunt, Liz Dolder, said Tuesday that Safyre was "over the moon" when the first card arrived. But Dolder said the family was unlikely to receive enough cards to fill the card tree.
    
Dolder posted a photo of Safyre on Facebook and told of her wish. She's been deluged with responses.
    
Dolder says "it's just magical. She's so excited."
    
The address for cards is P.O. Box 6126, Schenectady, NY, 12306.

Dolder is being deluged with cards and gifts from strangers around the world who were moved by her simple Facebook wish.
    
Safyre and her aunt, Liz Dolder, went to a mall post office Wednesday to collect the first batch of hundreds of cards and gifts that have poured in from well-wishers.
    
Meanwhile, a crowdfunding post on YouCaring.com has generated more than $174,000 to help the family with medical bills and other financial challenges.
