Officer Matt Gerald
support for my cousin and his family anything you can donate would help.
All earnings will go to wife and children
After many have asked how legit the page is I don't know how to verify the page I've tried. Matthew was my first cousin my name is Jaylan Gerald if you have any question or concerns you may contact me via Facebook and I will respond ASAP. Thank you all for what you've done in helping my family, we couldn't be more thankful.
All proceeds are going directly to the family of Officer Gerald. Jaylan is currently my probationary firefighter and is working on ways to verify this gofundme as a legitimate campaign. Which is surprisingly difficult to do in this day and age of fake accounts. Your concerns about that this could be fake are reasonable, but in this case I can verify it is real. I hope this helps, Jaylan's heart is in the right place. RIP Officer Gerald.
Could you please verify your identity? Don't want to donate unless I am sure I'm sending money to the right place. Colorado Native, but grew up in Baton Rouge, and no one deserves to lose their family....
I donated 4 minutes ago but preferred to do so anonymous. I am sorry that I am only able to give a 3 diget donation. I want to offer prayers to the family during this time of grief. Also prayers for God to comfort them during this time and restore their peace. Amen
My daughter raised 1380 dollars from lemonade stand to be split between all three families you can expect it to be done wed when we go to the local tv sation that wants to film it. https://www.facebook.com/lovewithlemons/ is her facebook page that has videos from the event. God bless your family.
Also, add some more personal information about Officer Gerald in the above narrative -- that too will help people. How many kids? How old? Etc.
Perhaps put the link from the advocate in the above narrative. That will help people trust that you are who you say. I believe you -- the article will help as we assume reporters verify things.
Please raise his goal up to 500k
Krista Bruns Glaser- My husband is Nick Lambert. His fund is 100% legitimate, as well. There are just separate people over the country trying to collect money for Matt's family. http://m.kcci.com/news/baton-rouge-police-shooting-hits-home-for-central-iowan/40772068
I want to donate but I first want to make sure the account that I am donating to will go straight to his wife & kids. Can you please post who is the legal name on the account that this money is going directly into.
Prayers to his family
