Katy Perry made Christmas a lot more special for one very special little girl. Safyre Terry lost her immediate family in a house fire that was deemed arson. She now lives with an aunt. Severely burned in the fire, eight-year-old Safyre bears many physical and emotional scars from that fateful night. She made a request via social media for lots of Christmas cards, saying that's all she wanted for the holiday. When Katy Perry heard of Safyre's request, she sent a card--and a whole lot more.

“Safyre, I heard about your Christmas wish and and am so honored that you saved the top of the tree for me!” the card Katy Perry send the little girl read. “I hope you have a wonderful Christmas and a great New Year. I’ll be thinking of you on Christmas Day. Special girl.”

The care package Katy Perry sent Safyre Terry included a backpack, a hooded sweatshirt with ears, a DVD of her Prismatic Tour, a DVD of the Katy Perry film Part of Me, an iPhone case, and a coin purse.

Safyre Terry was no doubt thrilled with a Christmas card from Katy Perry. The care package was likely her favorite Christmas gift.

Safyre's favorite song is Katy Perry's "Roar." During a visit from Angel Cascio, one of the late Michael Jackson's best friends, she went back and forth between learning to play "Roar" on her keyboard and opening some of the many--more than 10,000--packages she received. She received more than 500,000 Christmas cards.

Kudos to Katy Perry for taking the time to pen a special message inside a Christmas card for Safyre Terry. Her compassion made this little girl's Christmas incredibly special.
