via: fox17 Meet Rodney Smith Jr. from Huntsville, Alabama. This Champion of Community Service is on a mission this Summer to mow 50 lawns in all 50 states for those in need of a little extra help. His website: 50states50lawns has this simple mission statement: "Raising Men Lawn Service provides free lawn care to our elders, those who are disabled, single mothers and our veterans, who do not have the time, resources and/or money to manicure their yards."
However, he knows there are those across our entire Country that could always use a little help. So he's visiting each State to spread the word and encourage others, especially kids to participate. As you can imagine, there's been a huge outpouring of support for his mission, from places to stay to meals and resources, to media support. Here's a recent piece from his trip to Nashville on Fox17 News
