McKee Zajfen then concluded her caption, calling on her followers to support the Alliance of Mom's latest campaign.

"Please join us in this year's very special campaign and purchase your t-shirt to support in the link in bio," she wrote. "Don't forget to tag @allianceofmoms so we can shout from the roof tops how amazing you all are for supporting this wonderful community of mothers."

McKee Zajfen's post comes just days ahead of Mother's Day on Sunday. This year will mark her first since the tragic death of her young son George in July 2022. He was 9.

Meghan and husband Prince Harry previously donated $5,000 to a GoFundMe that was set up in George's honor after his death, The Daily Mail reported. They made the donation in the names of their two children, Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet, the outlet said.

Last summer, McKee Zajfen announced the death of her "sweet baby boy" in an Instagram post.

"My world is shattered into a million pieces," the philanthropist wrote at the time. "I have little ability to breathe. Walk. Function. Sit. Stand. You were the light of my life. Your smile made the room so bright and your heart was the most perfect and sweetest."

McKee Zajfen continued, "You left this Earth and left behind so many people who loved you. I don't know how I'm able to go on. How I can function. How I can be the light and have joy ever again but I'm going to try."

The entrepreneur, who is also mom to daughter Lily with husband Julian, said she will "try hard for your beautiful twin sister," adding, "I can't comprehend any of it."

McKee Zajfen also thanked her "world and tribe" for their support in "pulling me off the floor." She said, "I can't do it with you."
