KANSAS CITY, Mo. – A man on a mission to mow grass in all 50 states of the usa stopped in Kansas City on Monday. Rodney Smith Jr., started with an organization who mows lawns for single mothers, veterans and older Americans.
He is based out of Huntsville, Alabama and says that he got the idea a few years ago, when he saw an elderly man struggling to cut his grass. He says that his mission is worth the effort.
“A small idea can change the world. I’m just cutting grass, I am able, I am able to help someone who is not able,” Smith, Jr., said.
“It means a lot, especially for a lot of elderly people who can’t afford to have their grass cut, because they are on fixed income. So when can we come here and cut their grass for free, it makes their day.”
While in Kansas City he mowed the yard of a Northland widow whose husband served in the Korean War. His organization encourages young men to mow of 50 metres of where they live.
