Social Media Connects GMM Employee to a Special Family at Christmas

Our very own Margaret Ditty from the Virginia Beach branch traveled to upstate New York over the holidays to volunteer her time with Safyre, an 8-year old girl who lost her father and younger siblings in an arson fire in 2013 that also left over 75% of her body severely scarred. Safyre’s only Christmas wish was to receive holiday cards to fill her card tree.  

With the help from social media, word spread quickly and people all around the world came together to make this little girls’ wish come true…and more. Several semi-trucks are loaded up in a secure location with cards, letters and gifts still waiting to be opened and the local post office is holding their mail. The family was also donated a warehouse from a local business to stage all the mail opening and are in need of more local and out of state volunteers. Margaret was so excited to witness the outpouring of love and support for Safyre, and she also helped open hundreds of cards and gifts. She even made Santa Letters for Safyre and her cousins and brought them special gifts. Margaret explains, “I told my husband the only thing I wanted for Christmas was a plane ticket to New York to help this sweet child and that’s what I got.” What a special way to spread the holiday spirit of giving. Wonderful job, Margaret! To learn more about Safyre’s story, go to: or to volunteer go to:
