He’s offering to hand wash cars inside and out for $20.

He says all the money will be donated to the families who lost children in last week’s fatal bus crash.

Barnett who is also a parent says the death of those children really made him think about what their parents are going through.

“Those parents; when they let their kids go on the school bus, it kind of really hit home with me because they didn’t know that was going to be the last time they saw their kid. Once you think about it, you realize we take life for granted; the simple things. I felt that in my heart to do this for the families and just try to give back to the community,” said Courtney Barnett.

Again, those car washes are $20 and all the money goes to the victim’s families.
