Do you paint? Sew? Use found objects to create adorable sculptures of pets from video games? Good, because it’s that time of year again.  On June 15th submissions for the Desert Bus 2017 Craft-Along will officially be open.  You will have until June 30th to get your submissions in, so that we can get back to you with enough time to complete your crafts.  We endeavor to provide everyone with a response to your submission by July 15th. The deadline for receipt of finished crafts will be September 30th.

If you are new to the Craft-Along, and have a great idea for a craft for DB, the process is simple just follow the link for Craft-Along submissions (http://craftalong.desertbus.org/), and fill in the form.  We will need contact information, a description of the craft, and a few other pieces of info.  If you are a returning crafter, well that’s old news; however, this year we will only be taking one submission per crafter.  As this year we have a new Prize Mistress, and Craft-Along Coordinator, we are reducing the total number of prizes, both in terms of awesome crafts, and in terms of those donated by our amazing sponsors.   This gives us a chance to learn the ropes, and give each of you and your projects more attention.

The Desert Bus For Hope Craft-Along community is full of incredibly kind and gifted people who give so much of themselves, and for that we are eternally grateful.  Its people like you who make Desert Bus what it is, a positive gathering of people from across the world to help kids be kids.

You folks rock.

DBX Game Jam – The Games

This year during DBX some of our community got together to form the Desert Bus for Hope 10 Game Jam which resulted in 11 new games. If you’re missing Desert Bus a little bit, here’s a chance to experience Desert Bus in a whole new way. Thanks to everyone who shared their creations with us.

That’s all for us here at Desert Bus for Hope. We have bussed, danced, auctioned, cheered, laughed and BOY HAVE WE CRIED. We did more than we ever thought we could this week. We raised more than any previous Desert Bus. We raised over $690,000.00
We are off to go sleep somewhere. We’ll see you on the other side of the road. Much love from everyone here at Desert Bus for Hope HQ.

Good Night Everyone!
