How much is a life worth?

I am starting this GoFundMe for my client’s son who is also a friend of mine. 

PHASE II   

Thanks to the very generous donations received so far, Bruce has been able to place a down payment on a 2002 Ford E350 7.3 Powerstroke @125k miles 4wd Tall box Extended Ambulance, that will be converted and built out by a professional company in Philadelphia. This build will have a composting toilet, a kitchen set up for propane, a double sized bed, solar panels, and the related batteries.  This is a major step forward, but we need a lot more help to reach the final goal.  So please consider donating, asking others to donate, and share with all you know.   The more we share, the more help Bruce can get, and the less stress it will place on his health situation.

We are asking every person to ask themselves, is a life worth $1? 

Is that life worth the few moments it would take to ask all your friends to donate $1 and to share and ask their friends to do the same? Please watch the above video and ask yourself if life is worth one dollar?

Bruce Pringlemeir is a disabled 53-year-old Faulkner County man who has spent the last 13 years taking care of his elderly mother and helping provide a home for them both, focused on her declining years. Bruce has sacrificed his own health and income when no one else in his family had no time or interest in doing so. In the wake of her passing at 82 on June 21st,  after having been connected to a ventilator for two months, he has been left with his own health issues and beneath a load of debt thanks to an immense reverse mortgage his mother set up years before.
 
Having devoted his life to caring for his mother, he will soon be evicted from their home due to inability to pay and no real ability to work thanks to his own health issues. Without the support of the family which has shown no interest in engaging at all, he will be homeless.
 
But he has friends.
 
We are trying to help him get a retired ambulance for conversion into a camper van tall enough to live in. The campaign goal is intended to cover the costs of buying the ambulance as well as the "Tiny House" conversion. Once the rig is purchased, Bruce will be selling his 2012 Ford Fusion to help cover the modification costs. Between the price of the basic ambulance, conversion equipment, and the cost of labor, the requested $40,000 may even be an underestimation of what will be needed. (When all the work must be contracted out and can't be performed by the owner, costs skyrocket.)

Bruce receives $1000 Social Security monthly, no other income, and is overwhelmed with his mother’s remaining bills. This man has served this nation for 30 plus years in Christian ministry helping others around the country and served his community for 2 years in the local sheriff department. He is fiercely loyal. Whom and what he loves, he loves tremendously, deeply. This man puts his family and friends first.  
 
It's time for his community to give back and recognize his sacrifice.
 
If you are able to help, please donate. Also, we respectfully request that you share this on those whom you know via Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, church families, and others. If you know of organizations or businesses that might be able to help sponsor us, please let us know. We don't know when the eviction is coming but it will likely be by the end of September.
 
Thank you and God bless you.
