The family of a little girl in Baker City involved in a terrible accident two weeks ago is asking for people around the country to send her words of hope.

According to the Baker City Herald, 6-year-old Moira Reeves' dress caught fire when she was standing in front of a wood stove.

After being initially taken to a nearby hospital she was transferred to the Legacy Oregon Burn Center.

About 30-percent of her body is now covered with second and third-degree burns, and she will have to undergo several skin grafts.

While Moira goes through this difficult time, her family has come up with a creative way to cheer her up - they are asking for people from each state to send her letters.

The letter can be sent to the following address:Moira ReevesPO Box 24Baker City, OR 97814Family members have also started a GoFundMe campaign to help cover Moira’s medical expenses.
