ORGANIZATION: I Want To Mow Your Lawn Inc.

Help 61 yr old Disabled Veteran w/ Cancer in Hilton, NY w/ Lawn Services as Volunteer. She has served 17 years and 9 months in the Army until she was in a car accident that left her with 13 herniated or bulging discs. She was medically discharged. This April, she was diagnosed with non small cell carcinoma in both lungs. It is inoperable due to her COPD (she would never make it out of the anesthesia because her lung function is so low). Needless to say, her husband has been taking care of her for several years due to her breathing problems. On May 31st this year, her husband was in a horrible motorcycle accident which put him in the Trauma Unit for 2 weeks at Strong Memorial Hospital. A man pulled in front of him and he flew over the handlebars, hit the man’s windshield with such force that the windshield was inside his car. Her husband flew over the roof and back of the car and landed approximately 30-40 feet away. By the grace of God he is on the mend. He sustained a break in his back at T-5, a fractured left hip and elbow, multiple broken toes and a broken right collarbone. As of last week the neurosurgeon said his collarbone is approximately an inch and a half away from joining the remainder of his collarbone. By the end of the day, he is in incredible pain just trying to take care of her.

Mission Statement

To preserve dignity, enable independence and build community by providing eco-friendly essential lawn service for the elderly, veterans and others in need.

Description

Founded in 2020, at the onset of the coronavirus pandemic, I Want To Mow Your Lawn(tm) provides 100% free lawn-mowing to people over 65, military veterans, disabled, and under-resourced individuals / families - with green initiatives in mind. For I Want To Mow Your Lawn(tm) founder, Brian Schwartz, laid off from a digital-advertising job, it was something to do, some way to help, at a time when everything in the world seemed upside down.

In time, demand grew - and other volunteers joined Brian. Currently, over 175 volunteers enlisted across 37 states have helped clean-up over 500 yards. For the people that I Want To Mow Your Lawn(tm) is helping, the grass may not always be greener but it is cut, kempt, edged, and raked.

Media coverage of the organization across the globe to date has resulted in six times more volunteer enlistments for the 2022 spring-summer season.
