"As I bury my grandmother today in Evergreen, it's great to know that Alabama's next generation will continue to do great things. My uncle is a proud alum and retiree of Alabama A&M, and resident of Huntsville.

- For the second summer in a row, this 28-year-old is traveling to all 50 states to provide free lawn care to the elderly, disabled, veterans and single mothers.
After a chance encounter with an elderly man cutting his lawn one day, then Alabama A&M college student Rodney Smith Jr. became inspired to create a free lawn care service that turned into a nation-wide community service initiative. Smith also personally challenged himself to travel to all 50 states to mow lawns for those in need. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Smith founded Raising Men Lawn Care Service (RMLCS), based in Huntsville, Alabama, in 2016. In addition to providing free lawn care and maintenance, RMLCS also began to mentor youth, teaching them about the importance of community service and practical skills associated with lawn care and lawn mower safety. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The governor of Smith's home country of Bermuda has also acknowledged his efforts by presenting him with an award in 2017 on behalf of the Queen of England. It was also during 2017 when Smith embarked on a personal challenge with his "50 States 50 Lawns" campaign. He began his travel to all 50 states to provide free lawn services in May 2017 and as of last month, he has gone back out on the road to do it all over again. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
"After I finish 50 States 50 Lawns this summer, I’ll be starting to plan out 7 Continents 7 Lawns," Smith said. “I plan to, next summer, travel to all seven continents.” cc: @rodneysmithjr #becauseofthemwecan
