Greetings all, and welcome to the official site of the first annual “Desert Bus for Hope” Our goal is simple, raise as much money possible for one of the best charities out there right now. I think it would be safe to say that the diseases that children face everyday are horrible and we would all like nothing more than to see everyone of them cured and home in time for the holidays. Unfortunately that is not the reality with many of them, and while there are hundreds of charities out there contributing to the research and cure for them, some might lose sight of what the children have to go through on a day to day basis. That is where Child’s Play comes in. The basic principal is simple, give people the option to either contribute cash to the charity or go online to individual hospitals wishlish site and purchase a video game or a toy for the children in the hospital.
Our goal is even more simple. You donate money, one dollar, ten dollars, one-hundred dollars and not only are you donating to Child’s Play but you are also making a bunch of idiots up in Canada play a very boring and never ending game. So for anyone that donates to Child’s Play on a yearly basis, think of it this way. You could donate twenty dollars through the Child’s Play Website, or you could donate your money through our website, your money is going to exactly the same place but you get to force us to play Desert Bus for just that much longer.
One thing i can’t stress enough, if you want to see us keep playing you must donate through our paypal account. Rest assured that every cent that you donate is going to go to the Child’s Play Charity. To keep it easy for us to keep track of how much we earned we needed our own paypal account. And as an added bonus we have decided that we would front the Paypal service fee. Which means none of the money you donate is going to get taken away as a transaction fee.
If this sounds like a good way to donate some money this year to a great cause please hit the “Make a Donation” button to the right. If you would like to learn more please check out the Pages category to the right of the page. You will find what Child’s Play is all about under the “About Child’s Play” link. Find out exactly how your money is going to factor in to how much longer we are going to be playing under “The Donation Process“. And finally under “The Rules of Desert Bus” you will find a short blurb about the game in question, how we are going about playing it, and a video of the game being played.
Thank you once again for your time. Happy Donating
