When we think of the Holidays and Christmas, we often think of happy times spent with family and loved ones. We think of wonderful presents and enjoying delicious homemade food. There are so many things to be grateful for during the holiday season. Unfortunately, not everyone’s Holiday season is as bright as it should be.


Sa’fyre Terry’s world was turned upside down on May 2nd 2013 when she lost her family in a terrible fire which left her severely burned. Her father who was killed in the fire, was told to be protecting her from the flames on that fateful day.

Sa’fyre was 5 years old at the time of the fire. Now 8 years old, she has undergone over 50 surgeries and still has a long road of recovery ahead. Although she’s suffered so much at such a young age, Sa’fyre is still said to wake up every morning with a smile on her face. She has been strong during this tough time. Sa’fyre is an inspirational symbol of strength we can all admire. This year, her sole Christmas wish is to receive cards from all around the world. Out of all of the things in the world, this is her only wish.

The Gallery Collection is proud to announce that it will be sending Christmas cards to Sa’fyre this year and helping in granting her this wish. Employees are currently signing cards and are very happy to be a part of granting Sa’fyre’s wish.

“Out of suffering have emerged the strongest souls; the most massive characters are seared with scars.” ― Kahlil Gibran

If you want to send your own Christmas cards to Sa’fyre, address your cards to:

Sa’fyre Terry

P.O. Box 6126

Schenectady, NY 12306


Have a very safe & happy Holiday Season.

I think it is great that the Gallery Collection gave employees cards to sign and I sent a personal one too. I wish this pretty little girl all the love in the world.

I will be sending this poor girl a card. It is a blessing that she survived and I hope she can smile knowing how many people are sending her good wishes.

I hope this brought her endless smiles. My company sent her boxes of cards. Such a tragedy.

I read that she even got cards from the President and Beyonce, just to name a few. Glad to see people are stepping up to make her wish come true. I hope she had a wonderful Christmas and can smile reading each card she received.

When you can do something so simple as send a card and put a smile on someone’s face can make a world of difference in an otherwise difficult situation.

I can only imagine the look on her little face! So filled with joy as she read her cards. They must have filled her heart with so much Joy. 🙂
