A Wonderful Man

A Worthy Cause

**Please excuse this pure bleg. I tend to frown on this sort of thing when other people do it. If Ace wants to delete this, I understand completely.**

David Heim is a disabled man who runs a non-profit business, The Wheelchair Recycler, that provides motorized wheelchairs to needy people.

Very often these folks have been refused a wheelchair by Medicare, even though they are incapable of walking or standing on their own.
He has provided independence and indoor and outdoor mobility for hundreds of people in the US and around the world who otherwise would be stuck in a bed the rest of their lives or sitting waiting for someone to give them a push.

David has given this extremely costly equipment to these folks for FREE or for a pittance. He has sent FREE wheelchairs worth tens of thousands of dollars to the VA hospital when even the VA would not or could not provide them to some of our disabled vets.

His little shop even customizes wheelchairs with big round tires for traversing the beach, snow plows, or tank-like treads for folks who like to take rugged outdoor jaunts.

David has a soft spot for the plight of disabled children, and will redesign small wheelchairs for their needs and even put nifty touches on them, like special seats, paint jobs, cute backpacks and bike horns.

He does all this with funds he can generate through the wheelchair donation process and through monetary donations. When Christopher Reeves' widow donated her late husband's wheelchair to David, he used it to improve the lives of six other people with refurbished wheelchairs. I know you'd rather the Federal Government take over providing all forms of health care, but you just don't get this kind of passion and efficiency with government-run 'charity' (snort).

David has recently had some health difficulties and is now in the uncomfortable position of needing help himself in order to continue his mission.


That's all I got to say.
