The Importance of a Desk

It’s been a while since I’ve taken part in this blog tour. I just couldn’t always find the motivation to find positive stories to share all the time. But this month I’m back with something that’s sure to life your spirits this Friday.

This post is part of the We Are The World Blogfest which happens at the last Friday of the month. Bloggers gather together to share some optimism and positivity, and I think that’s really necessary these days. Click here to view all the other blogs taking part in this tour!

Today I wanted to share a story about a couple who saw a need that existed in their community and worked together to come up with a solution. Jessica and Al Berrellez realized that kids who were working remotely didn’t always have a space to do their schoolwork at home. Sometimes it was relegated to a temporary space like a kitchen table or a coffee table, or sometimes it was juts done on the floor. So they decided to help.

Together they began a project called “Desks by Dads” to help gather and make desks for low income members in their community. They’ve made at least 29 desks so far and are working to provide more. What’s even cooler is that they’re doing workshops and sharing tools and methods so that others can start up a “Desks by Dads” group in their neighborhood.
