Submissions are now open for the
Desert Bus 2018 Craft-Along!

DB2018 logo noBG


Do you paint? Sew? Use found objects to create adorable sculptures of creatures and characters from your favourite games? Good, because it’s that time of year again.  On May 5th at 9:00am PST submissions for the Desert Bus 2018 Craft-Along will officially be open.  You will have until May 31st to get your submissions in, so that we can get back to you with enough time to complete your crafts.  We endeavour to provide everyone with a response to your submission by June 15th. The deadline for receipt of finished crafts will be September 28th 2018.

If you are new to the Craft-Along, and have a great idea for a craft for DB, the process is simple just click here to get to the Craft-Along submissions page and fill in the form.  We will need contact information, a description of the craft, and a few other pieces of info.  This year we will only be taking one submission per crafter.  Seeing as last years prize count worked so well, we will be sticking with the reduced number of prizes, both in terms of awesome crafts, and in terms of those donated by our amazing sponsors.

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.

The whole Desert Bus team thanks you! Now get crafting! :)
