WJAR: Man mowing lawns in all 50 states stops in RI

A man on a nationwide mission to show people he cares by providing free lawn care made a stop in Rhode Island Friday. Rodney Smith Jr. founded a nonprofit organization called Raising Men Lawn Care Service in Alabama.

‘There’s many ways to make a difference. I simply have chosen a lawn mower to make a difference with and I hope to inspire others. Raising Men Lawn Care Service started in 2016. We have a good bit of young ladies that are taking part in it as well,’ said Smith.

Smith is currently traveling the country to help people in need. ‘What I’m doing now is something called 50 Lawns, 50 States. I’m traveling to all 50 states mowing lawns for free for the elderly, disabled, single moms, and veterans,’ said Smith.



Bellevue Leader: Middle school students unite to make a difference

It all started with an idea and blossomed into so much more. Students at Lewis and Clark Middle School wanted to make a difference in stopping school shootings and bullying. Lydia Torres and Caili McMichael, seventh-graders at Lewis and Clark Middle School, had the idea.

They’d been listening to the song ‘We Are The World’ … and decided to turn it into a tribute for school shooting victims around the country.

‘At first it started for awareness and now we’re trying to raise money for victims of school shootings,’ Lydia said. ‘It brought together a lot of students because we all care about this and want to make a change.’

About 50 seventh-graders sang ‘We Are The World’ on May 21. They used the event to help raise money for the National Compassion Fund. The fund, which was created after the Parkland, Fla., school shooting, donates money to victims and families of school shootings.
