Two Texas children are spending the remainder of their summer giving back to their community by mowing lawns free of charge.
Two siblings, 12-year-old Nathan and 10-year-old Zoe, recently accepted the nationwide 50 Yard Challenge created by Rodney Smith Jr., according to the San Antonio Express-News.
Smith made headlines by cutting yards of elderly people, veterans, and others in all 50 states.
Smith recently went on his fifth cross-country lawn mowing tour and started encouraging other Americans to take up the mowing challenge.
He recently applauded Nathan and Zoe on social media networks for “making a difference” in San Antonio, Texas.
The brother-sister duo had mowed five of the 50 yards as of Friday, Aug. 9. They are focusing their lawn-mowing efforts on helping the disabled, veterans, the elderly, and single mothers in their community.
Their mother, Analee Arias said her children are “not at all” overwhelmed by the 50-lawn goal, adding that they have a system for splitting up the work and staying hydrated.
The children enjoy giving back to the community and are working on adding more people to their lawn-mowing initiative.
