The holiday season is a time of joy 鈥 and Addie Fausett from Fountain Green, Utah is about to give you a mega dose of holiday spirit. This year, the six-year-old is asking for one of our favorite types of gifts 鈥 holiday cards. Wait, you鈥檙e prob wondering, why are holiday cards on her wish list and not, say, all Elsa everything? In November, Addie was issued a terminal diagnosis for an atrophy in her brain so her family is asking for a lifetime鈥檚 worth of Christmas cards in case this holiday is her last.


Since the family started spreading the word, hundreds and thousands of cards have poured into the local post office according to the organization helping with the project, Children and the Earth. Pretty amazing, huh?

Not only is this avalanche of cards helping to fulfill Addie鈥檚 wishes, but the cards are also bringing joy and memories to her family during this difficult time. (While dealing with her illness, Addie and her sisters Shayley, 10, and Audree, 7 are also enduring the recent, unexpected loss of their father. So the endless delivery of holiday cards are bringing smiles to the entire fam. Yes, our hearts are breaking too <3)

Though the cards don鈥檛 have to be DIY, it makes them all the more special for this sweet little girl. Don鈥檛 you think!? Here are 25聽to get you inspired! DIY or not, add Addie鈥檚 address to your holiday card list STAT. To send some holiday cheer to Addie and her sisters, address your card to: Addie Lynn and Sisters, P.O.
