EDISON - Twenty third-graders from Paterson Charter School for Science and Technology sang "Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree" for Safyre Terry as she gets her Christmas wish fulfilled through a social media campaign.

The 8-year-old New Yorker was badly burned in a fire two years ago that killed her father and three younger siblings.

Safyre's holiday wish this year was to fill up her tree stand with Christmas cards. Since then, she has received hundreds of thousands of cards from around the world.

The Baking Memories 4 Kids charity is sending Safyre to Disney World for a week.
