Oregon's Elephant Car Wash is an innovative and offbeat way to raise funds for the Wildlife Safari zoo. For $20, you can have your clunker scrubbed with a sponge by an elephant. These gentle giants even rinse off dirt using their trunks!

Dan Van Slyke, the executive director of Wildlife Safari, says that according to elephant supervisor Carol Matthews, the elephants don't mind the work. Moreover, the Elephant Car Wash has been a huge success in terms of raising funds for the zoo.
