While donors receive a Tax Deduction for their generous contributions – there are other intrinsic benefits to donating to our evergreen charity. We help cut back on the fines someone’s grandparent receives due to overgrowth. We help those who can’t afford landscaping contracts or can’t do it on their own due to physical limitations. A myriad of “Mowments” we help facilitate, such as giving back to a Vietnam War Veteran dealing with the effects of Agent Orange. Lawn care for a recently widowed woman with property upkeep while trying to sell her home. We provide mental relief for those grieving at home with a loved one’s final days in hospice care. A visually appealing lawn has many environmental benefits, such as reducing high temperatures, improving flood control, and preventing erosion. You might be supporting a med student volunteering their time – and who knows, that person can save a loved one’s life in the future. We inspire people to get off their couch and do something that matters — in real time. Couple that with the idea that we are forward-thinking with our mission by encouraging and incorporating the use of Electric Battery-Powered Equipment. Nevertheless, the prospect of bringing people and communities together outdoors while recovering from a global pandemic!

No Tips. Practicing Social Distancing!
During the Covid-19 Pandemic, our organization’s story has been featured in over 300 media outlets globally across TV, Radio, Print & Online (see all the news here). And while our service is entirely free of charge for Senior Citizens, Military Veterans, People with Disabilities, Cancer Patients & Single Parents; we are accepting donations from others to help cover for gas money, supplies, operations, volunteer insurance coverage, etc. We do not have any paid salaried employees and completely volunteer-driven. We’re a labor of love!
Lifetime to date (through mid-summer of 2023), we’ve made over 2,000 lawn visits resulting in over $250,000* in Economic Impact (*national average of a lawn service visit is $125) – with over 500 volunteers enlisted in 46 states (and a bunch now in Canada and as far as South Korea!) through our volunteer network.
