These lawn guys cut lawns only for those who can’t

Rodney Smith Jr. grew up on the island of Bermuda, watching his dad help people by building houses. Today, Rodney is about to graduate from college and says he thinks some of his dad’s giving spirit may have rubbed off on him.
Rodney is one half of a lawn care service in Huntsville, Ala., called Raising Men Lawn Care Service.
This lawn service is extraordinary in many ways, none of which has to do with the quality of their lawn care. (But by the looks of things, they’re doing a great job!)
Their lawn service focuses on people who need the most help. Last fall, Rodney saw an elderly man struggling to cut his grass. “I thought I needed to do something about it,” remembers Rodney. “That’s when I decided to cut lawns for the elderly, disabled and single mothers for free.”

People Refuse To Leave Deadly Louisiana Floods To Save Helpless Animals From Drowning

Since last week, devastating floods in Louisiana have taken the lives of at least 7 people and 20,000 have been rescued but some brave locals are still refusing to leave the area to save helpless animals from drowning.
Last Friday, Louisiana’s Denham Springs Animal Shelter was so flooded that only its roof was visible. “The dedicated staff and volunteers fought to save as many animals as possible from the flood waters, eventually having to unlatch the kennel doors and let the dogs swim out and climb onto the roof,” the rescue wrote on GoFundMe. The animals were then transported with boats to safety and neighbors who didn’t evacuate have been helping the local organizations to provide temporary care for the animals. Many other animals were saved too, for example, a man was seen pulling a boat full of sheep to safety. “It’s Noah’s ark Cajun-style,” Christie Noel commented on Facebook. As of Sunday, Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries has also rescued a total of 2,324 people and 464 animals. Though the rains have eased this Monday, forecasters warn that the threat is far from over.
