Hello! I am Kendra Lee, friend & photographer for Britt Harris & Christian, daughter of fallen soldier Christopher Michael Harris. Chris was KIA on August 2, 2017 a week after learning his wife Britt was pregnant. This account is solely for the benefit of Christian. After the images of her went viral my inbox was flooded with requests from people wanting to support this Gold Star baby and turning them away didn't feel right. Raising a baby is scary enough but alone is even harder. Diapers, clothes, school lunches, healthy food, college...it all adds up and while many like to speculate on the finances of other people, the truth is - any little bit helps and being a single mom hard. With Britt's approval this fund was started and will be a strong start to a savings (529) account for this precious little one as well as assistance for bills, formula, and all of the things little people require.
*totally understand that not everyone loves GFme accounts. If you don’t want to participate, don’t worry! It’s okay. This was created for the people that have asked for it. Be kind or move on. Thank you so much for your love.
Update! We are so excited by the overwhelming response to this story! Your kind words and support mean the world to us. Sharing this story does exactly what we promised Britt we'd do, tell the world about her hero and his legacy. You can find our interview on CNN at the following links:
While the interview was told on so many wonderful new outlets, our friend Julie Wilson with ABC 11 has been with us, helping to tell this story from the beginning. She even joined us, on her day off, at the Cape Fear Botanical Gardens to cover this story. Her story can be found here: Julie Wilson, ABC 11 Story
Again, thank you for taking the time to share and to donate to this wonderful love fund for sweet Christian.
Light and love,
