Everyone loves a feel good story, and this one rocks. WD-40’s one-of-a-kind customized Mustang just helped raise more than $200,000 for needy children.
Childhelp, an organization that provides services to abused and neglected children, and Victory Junction Gang Camp, which offers camping experiences to special needs and chronically ill children, were the two charities to benefit from the recent car auction.
The ride, known as the WD-40/SEMA Cares Mustang, was sold at the Barrett-Jackson Classic Car Show for $100,000 and it generated another $125,000 in donations. It features a custom interior, an entertainment system and paint that mimics the WD-40 brand– but in a good way.
SEMA Cares has been raising money for Childhelp and Victory Junction Gang Camp for more than three years. The sale of the Mustang represents the single biggest contribution to SEMA Cares to date. Nice!
