6-year-old girl asks for holiday cards for her last Christmas

The only thing six-year-old Addie Fausett has on her last Christmas list is cards—preferably the handmade kind.

Addie, who has a condition called diffuse atrophy, and her family were told by doctors that this Christmas would probably be her last. So when we saw the article on TODAY.com describing this family's wish for their little girl's last Christmas, we thought, who better to make this gift happen than amazing Stampin' Up! demonstrators and their customers?

If you would like to participate and support this family during a difficult time, please take a few minutes to tell all of your cardmaking friends, and then send handmade cards to:
Addie Lynn and Sisters, P.O. Box 162, Fountain Green, UT 84632

    Happy to send a card for every occasion...or none. One a week or one a day. We have wonderful uplifting stamps....& it is so little to ask. Maybe include a gift card or stamped game?

    Hi Addie, you are such a big special girl and what makes you more special is Mrs Clause first name is Addie as well. How special is that. I don't think I have received your letter to Santa yet so ask mom to help you get that too me. If you did send it, it might still be in the stack I havnt looked at yet. Rest assured I will look at all the letters. You have plenty of time. (((((NORTH POLE HUGS))))) Mrs Clause and I along with all the elfs wish you a Very Merry Christmas. We love you Honey.

    I will be reposting this to my FB page. And for those who smell a scam...it's the holidays! Don't you think SU! & the TODAY show did a little research before asking people to send cards & publishing the story publicly. For goodness sake, show a little Chrsitmas cheer instead of being so skeptical.

  • Chrystal

    Sep 24

    For those who are skeptical they are only asking for a Christmas card not a trip to Disneyworld. Her biological dad passed away and daddy Tyler you may have read about on Facebook is her Mom's boyfriend who is a father figure in her life. Come on it's just a card that will bring a big smile to a little girl and her family!

  • Donna Brown
