Man spends his summer Traveling the U.S. and mowing lawns for people in need
Rodney Smith Jr. is making a difference, one lawn at a time. Smith, a 28-year-old native of Bermuda, had just earned his master’s degree in social work when he spotted an elderly man in Huntsville, Alabama, having a hard time mowing his lawn. Smith stopped to help, and “that night, I decided to mow lawns for the elderly, disabled, single moms, and veterans,” he told CNN. He started the Raising Men Lawn Care Service, a foundation that finds people who need their lawns mowed and also inspires kids to give back. Last summer, Smith set off on a journey across the U.S. and mowed lawns in all 50 states. He’s doing it again this year, and has challenged kids to join him by mowing 50 lawns, free of charge, in their hometowns. So far, 12 kids have hit that goal, and each one received their own lawnmower.
