As of the end of bussing we had raised an astounding $693,880.29.

That is more money than most of us can comprehend and will go towards improving the lives of countless children all over the world.

From the bottom of our hearts, thank you.

  7. Calling it now. Desert Bus X1: Operation Help 100,000 Kids.

    That’s $700,000. We can *absolutely* get there.

    I have more thoughts than can be expressed here, but should hopefully be linked as my URL. Be well, everybody, and get some sleep. 😀

  8. This was my first year knowing about Desert Bus.

    I will donate greatly next year, this year–not so much as my roommate stole over $10,000 USD from me, tried to kill me, and has been in Jail for the attack since July.

    Then an uninsured driver totaled my car and hers the next week leaving me bedridden and unable to work since the start of summer behind the injuries. I just returned to working this past month and am heartbroken I could not donate behind paying bills to keep my vehicle and home.

    You all did amazing work and I will be proud to support Desert Bus 11 next year–you all have very much to be proud of, your work speaks for itself and you guys rock!!!

  14. Thank you everyone who watched, donated, shared the updates, sent in twitter comments… thank you!
    The team behind the event is the most welcoming and loving group of people I have ever come across, and I am so proud of what they do year after year. Desert Bus means family to a lot of us, I experienced that first hand this year, I appreciate each and every one of you and I love you all!

  15. Thank you guys so much!! I loved every minute I saw of Desert Bus, thank you guys for all of your hard work, for making me laugh through a rough week and a rough semester I’ve had so far. My only regret for this year of DB is that I didn’t contribute more, you guys are amazing in all that you do and I wish I could give more than a couple dollars and a craft that raised a few hundred. Hope to see you guys at PAX East if you come over here!

    Thank you guys so much! I love all of you and I hope you rest well! <3

  16. Thank you all again for another fantastic run! Organizers, “on-screen talent”, volunteers and everyone who donated. It’s always an honor to be a small part of something bigger and far more awesome than can easily be imagined.

    Now I’m going to go recover from the feels bomb since I had to go to bed before the end and only just caught up.
