A Christmas card and presents from the US singer were all included

Katy Perry has fulfilled the wishes of a young burns victim in Rotterdam, New York.

Safyre Terry had requested Christmas cards to fill her card tree, including one from Perry to sit right at the top.

The eight-year-old, who suffered severe burns and scarring from a fire that killed her father and siblings in 2013, ended up receiving over a million cards, including ones from the US president, Barack Obama and Beyonce.

In Perry’s package was a card that read: “Safyre, I heard about your Christmas wish and am so honoured that you saved the top of the tree for me! I hope you have a wonderful Christmas and a great New Year. I’ll be thinking of you on Christmas day. Special girl.”

There was also a rucksack and hoodie combo with ears, a light-up iPhone 6 case, a DVD of Perry’s ‘Part of Me’ movie about her ‘Prismatic’ tour and a black purse shaped like a cat.

This year Katy Perry was named the highest-earning female music star of 2015 by Forbes.

The US pop singer beat her rival Taylor Swift to the top spot.

According to Forbes, Perry earned £87m ($135m) between June 2014 and June 2015, while Swift made £51.9m ($80m) during the same period.

Perry’s earnings are largely attributed to her 126-date ‘Prismatic’ world tour.

Stevie Nicks and Christine McVie of Fleetwood Mac come third in the list, making £38.6m ($59.5m) largely from the band’s 86-date ‘It’s On With The Show’ tour.
