British model Katie Price has announced plans to launch a new charity.
The model, formerly known as Jordan, wants the new Katie Price Foundation to focus on helping sick and disabled children enjoy a better quality of life. Her experience with the cause is a personal one: her son Harvey was born in 2002 autistic and blind.
“Harvey’s condition has caused her years of pain and she understands the struggle parents go through with a disabled child,” a source told the Daily Mirror. “She wants to help other parents like her who are less fortunate.”
During the weekend, Price made an appearance at the Duke of Essex Polo Trophy for Vision, a charity which raises money for the benefit of blind, visual impaired and dyslexic children. Earlier this year, she ran the London Marathon to raise money for the charity.
