When Rodney Smith was just 15 years old, he came across an elderly man struggling to mow his lawn.
After helping the gentleman, the Alabama student was inspired to help as many people as he could mow their lawns focusing on the elderly, veterans, disabled people and single moms.
Out of that came an organization that is not only helping those in need around the U.S. but also inspiring other kids to do the same.
As founder of Raising Men Lawn Care Service Rodney has inspired over 700 kids from all 50 states to take up the beautification challenge and mow 50 lawns in their community.
He then sends them a different colored t-shirt for every 10 lawns they mow to eventually reach a black t-shirt in lawn mowing.
