Not all heroes wear capes. Some plow, and some mow.
1.) Four Kentucky kids banded together to make their community a better-mowed place. Free of charge, a team of young lawn enthusiasts goes door to door offering their lawn services to neighbors and community members. Travis Wilson, 15, was originally given the task of mowing his own front yard for free as punishment, but by the time his mom had returned from work, he had mowed eight surrounding lawns.
Travis’ enthusiasm for his project was contagious, and his mowing team grew to include three more teens. The community is rallying around them, and though the boys won’t accept cash for their services, there is a GoFundMe set up to send the young mowers to Disney World.
2.) Picking up a stranded mother in labor during a storm is possibly one of the biggest snow emergencies a plow driver could imagine. That’s exactly what happened when Hugh and Stephanie Dawson’s truck broke down on a highway in the middle of a snowstorm. The couple was headed to the deliver their baby, already slowed by the weather, and Stephanie knew they wouldn’t make it to their hospital of choice about 40 minutes away. Then, to make matters worse, the Dawson’s truck suddenly died. Hugh immediately jumped out of the truck to wave down a snowplow headed in the opposite direction. The driver diverted from his route and quickly drove the couple to the nearest hospital. A healthy baby boy named Brayden Dawson was born shortly after their arrival, thanks to the quick response of a plow driver.

3.) One 17 year old found that the perfect way to say “thank you” is with a lawn mower. A Minnesota deputy came home after work to find his lawn freshly cut, and a note from a mystery mower. The note, as signed by 17 year old Brett from Bemidji, explained that he wanted to show the deputy appreciation for his service to the community. The note read, “If it is OK with you, I would like to mow your lawn for you because your job is hard enough.” Brett recommends that the deputy spends the time it would have taken to mow to do something he loves instead. The Beltrami County Sheriff’s Office posted the letter on their Facebook page with the caption, “We love those we serve.”
