It may sound superficial, but lawn care is important for many people and some cities will even administer citations to those not keeping up their yards. So when Rodney Smith Jr., a college senior at Alabama A&M University, noticed an elderly man struggling to mow his own lawn, he had the idea to help him—and hundreds more.
Smith originally posted on Facebook to ask friends if they knew elderly or disabled people who needed their grass cut for free, even though he didn’t have his own lawnmower to get the job done. People responded with names of those in need, and he set out to cut 40 lawns by winter.
Since some clients didn’t have their own lawnmowers, he found a cheap one on Craigslist to haul around with him. When he arrived to purchase the lawnmower, he told the seller what he was planning to do with it and the man gave the mower to him for free.
Smith’s goal of 40 lawns came and went quickly in October, so he resolved to cut 100 instead, an ambitious goal for someone going to school full-time and studying computer science.
When he saw the need for free lawn care grow, he decided his small charity work needed to grow as well. After winning $319 from a news network’s “pay it forward” segment, he started an official charity called “Raising Men Lawn Care Service.”
