IDAHO FALLS, ID — Cardon Car Wash here is donating the profits from two days of washing to an international nonprofit agency called Dando Amor, KPVI reported.
The March 12 story stated that the Cardon family visited Ecuador last June and worked in orphanages with Dando Amor. After the trip, Matthew Cardon, the carwash's owner, knew the family had to do more for the orphans.
"They've been abused or their parents are in prison or something else. Once you start to hear the stories of what these kids have gone through, it just touches your heart and you want to be able to help them. You want to do everything you can to support them," Cardon said in the story.
On March 13 and 14, the business will donate 100 percent of the proceeds from the exterior wash to the charity. The wash is trying to raise $10,000 to provide food, clothing and essentials for the children in Ecuador.
Cardon and his sons plan on traveling to Ecuador the next week to make sure the funds get to the group and all are invested in helping the children.
Dando Amor focuses on building schools, repairing roofs and purchasing beds. The charity also spends thousands of dollars on food and clothing.
