A Standing Desk | $442
Amanda, 49 years

Amanda’s wish is to receive a standing desk, so that she can move around as she does her schoolwork and online classes. Sitting at a desk increase swelling in her body and creates intense back pain, which has made it difficult for her to work for long periods at a time. She would really love to be able to stand and move around while she works. The desk would allow her to complete her studies more comfortably, help improve her circulation and reduce her back pain.
