It is not everyday that you get a call from the Kelly Clarkson Show asking for your daughter, but that is what happened yesterday.
In a previous post, I mentioned that my son had accepted the “50 Yard Challenge” from Rodney Smith Jr. to mow 50 lawns for free for the Elderly, Disabled, Single Mothers, or Veterans in the community. My 11 year old completed the challenge and Rodney Smith Jr. drove over 2,000 miles to present my boy with a brand new lawn mower, leaf blower, and weed eater.
It is a great program that can be found here: https://weareraisingmen.com/
When Rodney came to our home, my daughter decided she enjoyed what her younger brother had done and told him she would like to take the challenge. She has mowed 19 lawns so far and should finish by the summer of next year.
It turns out Kelly Clarkson is going to do a show with Rodney Smith about the young women who are taking part in this challenge, and he submitted the name of my daughter, along with a few others, to attend the show with him.
She interviewed with them yesterday and they said they can only select 2 girls to come on the show, but she is being considered. I think it was really kind of him to think of her! We will see if she gets to go on or not, but even just being considered has been awesome for her!
