In 5/Under 5: 2x! Send cards from across the world to two special little girls!

Tis the season for giving, and we have a super sweet and inexpensive way for you to bring tidings of joy! Our viewers LOVE projects in this series because it can be done "in 5" minutes and for "under 5" dollars. It's too easy not to participate!

We'd like to introduce you to two lovely little ladies.

Meet Ella. 

Due to medical reasons and ineffective treatments, this will most likely be Ella's last Christmas.

Unfortunately, we don't know much else, but that's enough to want to send her some love! Grab a postcard or make a holiday card and send it from wherever you are in the world!

Sweet Ella

This is Safyre

In 2013, an arson attack that killed her father and three siblings, left Safyre with serious burns on 75% of her body. Firemen found Safyre with her face buried in the chest of her father who was shielding her from the fire. 

After several days in critical condition after the fire, she still faces a number of surgeries as she recuperates two years later in Rotterdam, New York. She's come a long way out of a tragic event and is known to those around her as "a very happy miracle child."

Safyre's goal is to fill up this card tree with messages from all around the world! From where will you be sending yours?

Enjoy this sweet anecdote from The Telegraph, UK:

In September this year a motorcycle rally was held to raise funds for her medical treatment.

One of the bikers, Eric Yesse, told broadcaster News10: "She’s still here, she’s still hanging in. She’s amazing, if she doesn’t give you inspiration, nothing will ... Our goal is to watch her walk down the aisle when she’s old enough to get married, because we’re going to be around that long and we’re going to help her every step of the way.”

As always, let us know that you're participating in this project!
