Hope you’ve got the tissues ready, because this story is going to make the tears flow.
Danny Covington is a 6-year-old boy from Council Bluffs, Iowa. He is like most kids his age— he loves video games, playing sports, and spending time with his family. He also loves math class in school, especially geometry.
But something about Danny is a little different. Because of a rare birth defect, he was born with no left hand. And coming from a family of humble means, he was probably going to remain one-handed for awhile.
A pioneer in the 3D printing world, MakerBot devices are able to print all sorts of three-dimensional items. And when CEO Nadav Goshen heard about Danny’s story, he wanted to help out.
So Goshen and the MakerBot team decided to surprise Danny and his family, and 3D printed him a rubber cube to play with… absolutely free!
Can you imagine a more perfect gift for this geometry lover?
I’m not crying, you’re crying.
In these days when we’re constantly inundated with negative stories in the media, it’s so refreshing to see something so positive and beautiful.
Have fun with your new cube, Danny! Faith in humanity restored!
