Help Matt Give Bikes to Kids

Matt LOVED biking and suffered his brain injury while out enjoying a ride. Many of you have asked to provide money for Matt's bills. At this time, Matt is not in need of financial support. But there is one way you can turn this tragedy into genuine joy for many low-income kids.

Are you ready to help Matt give bikes and helmets to children who otherwise can't afford them? Are you ready to turn Matt's tragedy into lasting memories for Colorado's struggling kids?

Help Matt and the entire Luther Family support Project Recycle right now! Project Recycle is a Colorado non-profit that refurbishes donated bicycles and provides new helmets to low-income kids who desperately
want to ride! And they do this all for only $50 per child!

It's hard to believe, but even in Colorado 1 in 14 children live at or below the poverty line. That's over 200,000 families who often have to choose food over other luxuries. But for only $50 per child, you can provide a refurbished bicycle and new helmet to one of these kids.

Over the last year, I have been working with Project Recycle (PR) on a bicycle safety campaign. I never dreamed that someday I would be facing my own bicycle related crisis, or that my own life would become so personally tied to Project Recycle's mission. But it has, and, because I already know AJ and all the other staff at PR I can tell you that this is an organization that will put your donations to good work - and fast!

Our new goal is to raise $3700 - $100 for every year Matt has been alive, and enough money to pay for 74 bikes and helmets! Can you help me do that? AND to prove I'm committed to doing this with you, I will MATCH every dollar you pledge until we reach our goal. If you can't swing $50, don't worry - give what you can and I'll work on the rest. If you can give more than $50, I encourage you to do that too. I would love to see this goal met and then surpassed as a sign to my brother that his life continues to make a difference in this world. 

From all of us - THANK YOU SO MUCH! Your support means more than we could ever show.
