About Giovanni’s GI Project
The 501(c)3 charity was founded by Giovanni Marotta to put his own personal philosophies into action: honor, courage, commitment, and “leave no man behind”. Giovanni first started to provide bathroom accessibility support to veterans in 2014 when he met Marine Corps Gunnery Sergeant Guillermo “TJ” Tejada who lost both of his legs in an IED explosion in Afghanistan in 2010. The cost of remodeling TJ’s home was more than the family could afford. Giovanni helped TJ find a monetary grant to support the necessary remodeling at his residence, and did the project for TJ at cost.
