This Man Is Traveling To All 50 States Mowing Lawns For People In Need.
As a child, your parents probably paid you to mow the lawn, or gave you that chore as punishment when you were bad. But as an adult, Rodney Smith Jr. is on a mission to mow lawns across all 50 states. But it's not because he's just cuckoo over landscaping. Oh no! He's not doing this because he needs a little extra cash on the side. Smith's mission is actually quite noble. He doesn't just want to travel, he wants to focus on helping area residents who can't cut their own lawn because of physical issues. He's also willing to lend a helping hand to those who are pressed for time. And best of all, he's doing it free of charge.
For the second summer in a row, 28-year-old Rodney Smith Jr. has been on a lawn mowing mission.
It all began back in 2016, when he was driving home after school and noticed an elderly man outside trying to mow his lawn in Huntsville, Alabama. Smith realized that the man was struggling, so he pulled his car over and lent him a hand. This inspired his lawn mowing traveling mission.

Smith claimed on his Twitter account that he was on a mission from God to help others in need.
Take Mr. Barnett, for example. The Nashville, Tennessee veteran needed a little extra help with his lawn and Smith was more than happy to help. He also thanked Mr. Barnett for his military service before moving on to the next house.
This woman and her daughter's lawn was the first one that Smith mowed in Montgomery, Alabama.
They admit that they have tried mowing the lawn themselves, but they have found it difficult, and the fact that their lawn mower is broken doesn't help matters one bit. Fortunately, Smith came to their rescue and they said that his help meant the world to them.
He likes to keep his followers updated on where he is when he's out on the road lending a hand.
Talk about being considerate! When he arrived in Alabama, he asked his followers to let him know if they knew of anyone who was disabled, elderly, a veteran, or a single mom who could use some help mowing their lawn for free.
While in Jacksonville, Florida, Smith was able to mow the lawn for Sarah and Harris.
This was the second lawn he moved in this area, and since Sarah and Harris are both disabled, they were very happy to get some much-needed assistance from Smith. After that, it was on to the next house thanks to the organization he created called "Raising Men Lawn Care Service."
