A man who sells an aluminum spiral pipe at an online auction has raised more than $30k for a Colorado charity.
The auction, titled “The Spiral Pipe Project,” listed a pair of pipes with a combined price of $30K, but no further information was provided about the buyer.
The pipes are made from aluminum and are designed to be used as an emergency medical aid device.
The sale of the aluminum spiral tubes comes as medical costs for those in need have been rising in recent years.
In March, Colorado Gov.
John Hickenlooper signed a law requiring hospitals to accept medical equipment and other medical supplies from hospitals and health care providers that are eligible for reimbursement from the state’s medical aid program.
The law also allows individuals to use the funds to pay for medical services provided at the state level.
Hickenloopers office has also reported a spike in the number of people needing medical treatment since the law took effect.
