Rodney Smith Jr from Hunstville, Alabama is wanting to make a big difference with one thing - his lawn mower. He starting mowing lawns for free three years ago to help the elderly, disabled, veterans and single parents.
He came up with the idea of Raising Men Lawn Care Service in 2015 after seeing an elderly man struggling to mow his own lawn. He has already mowed more than 2,000 lawns across the nation. He does it with the help of youth in local communities. He has them hit a goal of mowing 50 yards and once they do, Smith flies down to do lunch with them and give them a brand new lawn mower.
Smith is on a nationwide tour currently where he is aiming to mow lawns for free in all 50 states.
I just had the pleasure of mowing Ms. Sbroglia’s lawn in Cleveland,OH. It was great meeting her. Making A difference one lawn at a time. pic.twitter.com/iP7ptDqzVe— Rodney Smith Jr (@iamrodneysmith) May 23, 2018
