Conservatives around the country have rallied behind Chris Kyle’s widow Taya since his untimely death in 2013.
AmericanSnipers.org is a website dedicated to Chris Kyle, and they recently raised $62,000 for his wife through a very successful rifle raffle. They raised the money by selling five rifles, the best of which was a McMillan .338 Lapua sniper rifle signed by Taya herself.
Instead of just giving Taya the money, they decided to surprise her with the donation. Taya thought she was appearing at one of their events for a raffle, but instead AmericanSnipers.org publicly presented her with a $62,000 check.
“I don’t know what to say. It’s been a bittersweet journey, obviously, and I do feel that Chris is with me,” she said after receiving the money, according to Inquisitr.
This money will undoubtedly help Taya support the two children she is now raising on her own.
