Raising Men Lawn Care HSV 2016

Greetings, my name is Rodney Smith Jr. I am from the island of Bermuda and currently attending college at Alabama A&M University in Huntsville, AL. In my free time I cut grass for the homes of the elderly, disabled and single parent mothers around town in Huntsville ,Al and near by cities for FREE. It is my understanding that, "To whom much is given, much is required".

In September of 2015 I challenged myself to cut 40 lawns by winter. A month and a half later, on October 21, 2015 I reached my goal. Since reaching my goal way before planned, I decided to aim a little higher and set a new goal of 100 lawns before winter. Now these are 100 different lawns; no two lawns alike. On November 25, 2015 I am glad to say I have completed my 100th lawns i am currently on lawn 125.

On November 10th , WAFF Channel 48 local news contacted me to interview and record me doing a lawn. I shared how this all came about and a week later news channel WHNT surprised me and came out to a lawn i was doing and gave me $300 for their pay it foward segment. A lady by the name of Dawn told them about me.

All of that got me to start the “Raising Men Lawn Care Service". The union of an ordinary yard maintenance service and the commitment to establish an inspiring program to keep our young men and boys (young women and girls) on a positive path while learning and understanding their value in society. This has been my vision since I started with the first yard. All the lawns we do are done for FREE.

The objective is to provide our elders and single mothers who do not have the time, resources and/or money to manicure their yards. I want to restore the importance and understanding of giving back to the community. I want to show our children (our future) that by helping others they too will receive a sense of accomplishment, self-esteem, moral value and purpose in themselves. The message I want to instill is no matter how young or old, small or tall they are or cultural background they come from, they are capable of whatever they put their mind to. From learning to use a lawn mower or weed eater, blower to racking and piling leaves, whilst developing team work, comradery, leadership, and listening skills, we will achieve our ultimate goal.

All funds raised will be used to purchase more t-shirts with our logo for uniformity, lawn equipment, materials and refreshments, just to name a few. No donation is to small!! Please check my Facebook and Instagram page to view all the lawns i have done as well as the lawns that we at Raising Men Lawn Care are doing/done. I Thank you in advance for all of your support!
