Rodney Smith, Jr. is the founder of “Raising Men Lawn Care Service.” His service provides FREE lawn care for the elderly, disabled, single moms, and veterans. Here is a little about his mission as stated on his website (http://50states50lawns.com/):

On May 10, 2017, I did something that I had never done before; I traveled to all 50 states (driving to 48 and flying to Alaska & Hawaii) mowing lawns free for the elderly, disabled, single moms, and veterans. The purpose of this trip was to make more people aware of the Raising Men Lawn Care Service and to encourage kids to accept the 50-yard challenge. On May 7th, 2018, I plan to do the same, but this time things will be even bigger in three key areas.

This time around I have three main goals: (1) to teach kids about lawn mower safety, (2) talk to kids about the importance community service, and (3) encourage kids to take up the 50-yard challenge. In addition to going to each state mowing lawns, I plan to stop at schools and community organizations to talk to kids about lawn mower safety, community service, and the 50-yard challenge. I also plan to have at least 1-2 kids at each lawn, if possible. I believe it is critical that kids get involved with doing community service and move away from playing video games and staying inside the house all the time. What better way to do that than to accept the 50-yard challenge! Also, I plan to make stops along the way to encourage the 60+ kids who have already taken the 50-yard challenge.
