Cutting Lawns For Free Turns into a Movement that Empowers Kids

“One day, I saw an elderly man cutting grass, and something just hit me. God was talking to me (saying)⏤‘Do something about it.’”

It was that one split decision when Rodney Smith Jr. pulled his car to the side of the road to offer Mr. Brown a helping hand to finish cutting his lawnthat would change his life forever. Mr. Brown became the inspiration for Rodney to help more people.

He set an initial goal to cut forty lawns for free. It was his way of giving back to folks who needed the help but didn’t have the money to pay for lawn services. The elderly, the disabled, single moms, and veterans would be the recipient of Rodney’s generosity.

When I first started, I just had my car and my lawnmower; that’s all I had,” explains Rodney Smith Jr., “I was cutting lawns between classes. I was a college student and just graduated recently with a bachelor’s in computer science. All this got me wanting to go back for my master’s in social work because I believe I found my purpose in life, and that’s helping people.”

The purpose that Rodney points out has now turned into a movement of giving back; caring for those in need; looking out for a fellow neighbor; and teaching the upcoming generation skills, generosity, and an appreciation for thy fellow man. After two months of cutting lawns for free, Rodney had reached 100 lawns and decided it was time to put the movement into overdrive. The story continues on the Brink of Greatness Podcast…

The Next Leap Forward

Hundreds of kids have joined the program throughout the country, but it doesn’t stop there⏤kids from five other countries have accepted the challenge of cutting lawns for free. Raising Men Lawn Care Service became the union of an ordinary yard maintenance service and the commitment to establish an inspiring program to keep our youth (girls & boys) on a positive path while learning and understanding their value in society, as explained on their website.

One of Rodney’s methods to incentivize the kids to ‘work harder’ is through the T-Shirt System. When a young man or woman joins the program, they start with a white shirt.  Thereafter, they get a new color shirt for every ten lawns they cut, so ten get them an orange shirt; twenty a green shirt; thirty a blue shirt; forty a red shirt; and finally FIFTY LAWNS earn them a black shirt. It’s called the 50 Yard Challenge.

I encourage you to take the 50 Minute Challenge. Take 50 minutes out of your day, step back and think about your own legacy. What is the lasting impression you wish to leave on the world? How can you make a difference in 50 lives? Think about it.

Washington, DC Today Resembles the One in London in 1776

It’s amazing how much the government in Washington, D.C. today resembles the one in London in 1776. Yet, it seems the American people simply will not recognize this fact. Because of that, we are suffering the same indignities, the same violation of our rights that caused our Founding Fathers to go to war…

The American experiment coming of age… but how is this experiment going? And have we reached the pinnacle of this experiment?

Breast Cancer, Who’s in Charge of Your Health?

Who’s in charge of our health? Is it your doctor, or are we the captain of our own team? Judy Moran offers perspective from her own experience, and it may shock you.

Federal Mandates and The States

What are the American people to do? Once we learn that those in Washington, D.C., and our state houses are our employees rather than our masters, we will have the foundation to fight for our rights. When we develop the intestinal fortitude to stand against their criminal behavior, then we will be able to stop the advance of their tyranny…

The Disparity Between Legal Travelers and Illegal Immigrants

Current threats in the form of drugs and crime, and illnesses are increasing due to open borders and reckless immigration policies. The threat will continue into the future as we spend our tax dollars on housing, educating, feeding, and providing health care to all of these unskilled immigrants…

About These Vaccine Mandates… It’s as if America had a King

About These Vaccine Mandates… It’s as if America had a King

Even without an executive order or regulations from OSHA (both of which would be illegal), companies across the country are instituting vaccine mandates because President Biden announced he was going to issue on EO. That is not the act of free citizens dealing with a federal employee. No, that is the act of a subject bowing, scraping, and kissing the boot of a king…
