All American Baby Blessing on January 27!
The All American Baby Blessing is your opportunity as a #GratefulAmerican to give to a most recent widow of war whose husband was killed only a week after she shared that they were expecting their first baby. Believe With Me is hosting a baby shower on January 27th for Britt Harris!
Christopher (Chris) Michael Harris, 25 of Jackson Springs, NC died in Afghanistan on August 2, 2017, when his patrol vehicle was struck by a vehicle borne improvised explosive device. He was born November 3, 1991 in St. Petersburg, Florida. He attended Grace Christian School in Sanford, NC., where he was a member of the soccer and basketball team, and graduated in 2010.
Chris was an avid fisherman and boater who loved spending time on the water and at the beach. He was an amazing husband, son, and Paratrooper. In October 2013, he joined the Army and as an infantryman was assigned to 2nd Battalion, 504th Parachute Infantry Regiment, 1st Brigade Combat Team, and the 82nd Airborne Division. Chris loved his family and his country with all his heart and was proud to serve as a Paratrooper in the “Devil” Brigade.
He was awarded the Bronze Star (Valor), Purple Heart, Army Achievement Medal, National Defense Service Medal, Afghanistan Campaign Medal, Global War on Terrorism Service Medal, Army Service Ribbon, Combat Infantryman Badge and Parachutist Badge.
Chris is survived by his wife, Brittany Harris; parents, Dennis and Sue Kolean of Jackson Springs; uncles, Mike Harris and Tony Parish of Pensacola, FL ; his Uncle Bruce and Aunt Cheryl and their children, Ryan and Kerri of St. Petersburg, FL.
His sweet wife Britt caught our attention when she was featured in a Pickler and Ben video…after watching this if you don’t shed a tear and thank God for families like the Harris’s then maybe you and I can’t be friends. Her kind heart and ultimate adoration for her sweet mother-in-law is what made the Believe With Me team decide that Britt and her baby deserved a baby shower that would truly honor the life and service of this entire family. Because a hero like Chris deserves to be honored, but the brave souls he leaves behind who must face a life without their precious son, or husband, or father…they are heroes worthy of our recognition and honor too. Join us by giving generously and allowing us to give her a shower that shows this family we are indeed a nation of grateful Americans. The shower date is 1/27 and will be held in North Carolina at a beautiful resort for Britt and her family with many of her close friends!
Consider giving to our All American Baby Blessing and helping us shower Britt and her family with the kind of love and support that Believe With Me has become known for!
