ORGANIZATION: I Want To Mow Your Lawn ®

Certainly! Here is the revised version:

A 42-year-old single mom is on Social Security disability income due to a heart condition. Her lawnmower broke, and she can't afford to replace it. The grass is really high, causing concerns about field mice and embarrassment. She also has a 15-year-old son with autism who needs a lot of care.

Can you be their angel with a lawnmower or string trimmer?

Note: The yard itself is small, but the grass is high. Additionally, a truck would be ideal to drive the road leading up to the house, as there are many large potholes.

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

Launched in 2020 amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, I Want To Mow Your Lawn (r) , a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization (Tax ID: 853447661), offers completely free lawn care to seniors over 65, military veterans, the disabled, and those facing financial challenges - all while prioritizing eco-friendly practices. Founder Brian Schwartz, who was laid off from his digital advertising job, saw it as a chance to make a difference when the world felt chaotic.

As time progressed, the demand surged, and a growing number of volunteers joined Brian's mission. Currently, over 340 volunteers across 40 states have revitalized more than 500 yards. For those receiving assistance from I Want To Mow Your Lawn(tm), the grass might not always be greener, but it's neatly trimmed, edged, and raked.

Global media coverage has led to an impressive six-fold increase in volunteer sign-ups for the upcoming 2023 spring-summer season.
