He sat for dinner with his family for dinner one night and noticed the textbooks of his children scattered all over the kitchen.
He got very annoyed because he had 4 children and binders and even pencils laying here and there.
He had to do something about it because he did not like it.
The next day, he went to a store and spent $50 on supplies so that he could build 2 desks for his children.
Within a couple hours, he had the desks ready and he was so happy that all their supplies were now in one place.
He took a picture with the desk to upload on social media and show his achievements to his friends.
Instead, he received so many messages of people asking him how they can make the desks because they did not know how to assemble wood.
His heart felt overwhelmed and he wanted to help.
He started making a YouTube video for these people with step by step instructions.
The word still continued to spread and a local grocery outlet contacted him.
They wanted him to build desks and they would fund the supplies for their school district students who needed the desks.
He was so excited and he readily agreed to the offer.
Within a week, he made 40 desks with the help of his family.
Him and his wife would make almost 5 to 6 desks everyday in their front yard.
The family set up a GoFundMe account so that they could get funds through which they could make more desks.
He says that the gratitude that comes from teachers, parents and the students themselves is what makes him work even harder.
His name is Mitchell Couch and he is 44 years old.
He lives is Lemoore, California.
