This is Pat Georgi, Matt's mom. Just a few more days to donate through GoFundMe as I need to close the account. Your response has been heartwarming, Matt has so many friends who are willing to honor him in this way. If you truly want to help a Vet, this is one way to do it! Those of you who need a few days (or the first of the month), I will leave the page open until the weekend. It is our desire to present the check to the Rutgers Vet community at their Veteran's Day picnic (Nov 8). Thank you all!

Thank you ALL! We reached our goal of over $10,000.00. If you wish to contribute to the Vet Fund, please do so directly at Rutgers Office of Veterans Programs, 14 Lafayette Street, New Brunswick, NJ. 08901 Again, thanks! And, mention Matt's name...
Hello, I'm Matthew Georgi, a recent graduate of Rutgers University, and a veteran of the United States Army. While attending Rutgers, I used my GI Bill to cover tuition and books, but the GI Bill doesn't cover everything, sometimes emergencies come up and veterans going to college need financial help in these trying times. Donating to the Rutgers Veteran Emergency Grant & Scholarship Fund will ensure that student veterans can get that help when times get tough. All proceeds will benefit student veterans attending Rutgers University. Please help those who have done their best to defend their country in times of need, and now are bettering themselves by gaining a degree from Rutgers.

This October 13th I will be running the 41st Annual 18 Mile Run on Long Beach Island, and this year I'm running for a reason, my fellow veterans and Rutgers Students. Any donations will help this great group of people, recommended donations are:

(edit... I'm not a smart man... my math was wrong...)
$1.25 a mile (total $22.50)
$2.50 a mile (total $45)
$5 a mile (total $90)


But, any donations will be greatly appreciated and go to a great cause, and help veterans in particular times of need. Thank you all so much and wish me luck!

It was a great day to run for Matt on 10/13/13. Great meeting Matt's friends and family and getting an insight on the great and caring person Matt was and the great people that were lucky enough to get to know him. Matt, rest in peace. You will forever be in our minds and hearts.
