After moving his way across the U.S. and cutting the lawns of those in need for a second time, Rodney Smith Jr. is ready to up the ante. The Good Samaritan turned charity founder plans to take his grass-cutting skills to at least seven yards — one in every continent — starting in May 2019. It’s all in service of veterans, single mothers, the elderly and people with disabilities, but also to inspire kids around the world to become charitable. Smith, who started the Raising Men Lawn Care Service organization, has been challenging young people through social media to take part in the “50 Yard Challenge,” in which they mow 50 lawns in their community His inspiration for the community service project came in 2015, when he drove by an elderly man mowing his own lawn.
