Desert Bus 2018
We’ve got an announcement, Desert Bus 2018 has a start date!
Join us on November 9th at 10:00 AM PST! Here are your next steps to get you ready for the big day:
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!
To everyone that’s part of our community – our crafters, sponsors, volunteers, and most importantly, viewers like YOU – thank you from the bottom of our hearts for joining us on this ride. We can’t say enough that this all wouldn’t be possible without your support.

Jer and Tally will be calling Desert Bus on Nov.23rd at 5:30pm (PST)
Jer and Tally are a couple of ordinary folks living in Vancouver, doing app development and administrative work respectively, fussing about the rising cost of avocados and yelling at all the (other) crazy drivers on the road. They were previously part of the Desert Bus crew and are thus calling in to reminisce about the good old days and pester the current crew.
