One man is on a mission to mow lawns for those in need in all 50 states. His goal isn’t really about lawn care — it’s about letting people know he cares about them.

Every time Rodney Smith Jr. visits a new state, he sends out the same Tweet: “If you know of anyone who is elderly, disabled, a single mother or a veteran who needs their lawn mower let me know. It’s free.”

Smith is the founder of Raising Men Lawn Care Service, a lawn care nonprofit he launched in his hometown of Huntsville, Alabama. Raising Men Lawn Care Service helps young people give back to their communities. The kids in the program visit people in need and help them with their yard work. They mow people’s lawns, shovel show, rake leaves and more — free of charge.

Then he came up with “The 50 Yard Challenge”, which challenged kids across the country to mow 50 lawns for people in need. The kids join by posting a photo of themselves on social media with a sign that says they accept the 50 Yard Challenge, and then they get to work.

Smith wanted to complete the challenge himself, but he raised the stakes. He challenged himself to the “50 Yards in 50 States Challenge.”

However, Smith is not limiting himself to one yard per state.

Smith says starting this charity has showed him his true passion in life: to help people. He’s also hoping to start a scholarship program for the kids who complete the challenge and continue to do well in school, according to CBS News.
