We thought we were done. We thought we had parked the bus for the year. But then. Oh, but then. After all of the numbers were crunched for this year, with all of your generous donations, all of your merch purchases, and one last Fangamer drop for t-shirt sales, we realized something. We figured out that we raised a total of…


That’s right, 2020 is the year that we broke one million dollars raised for Child’s Play. There were tears, y’all. Thank you all so, so much. 2020 was a rough year, and for you all to show this much amazing generosity floors us. You all did so much to help an amazing cause. We go live and act ridiculous, but you all make the donations for The Children. Each year, we are staggered by what you do. Thank you. You even got us to bus one more hour, bringing us up to a record breaking 165 hours!

As a reminder, if you want to re-watch your favorite moments, check out our youtube, and keep an eye on our social media for news on next year’s run. We’ll be posting there before you know it.


We’ll see you next year. For real, this time.
Thank you, we love you all.

This year has been tough for a lot of folks, and we weren’t sure how we were going to bus this year. But we knew that we were going to bus. That was certain. Even though we couldn’t be together in person, we still came together. And we bussed. We bussed so, so much.

This year, we broke so many records. We raised over $7,000,000 lifetime. We bussed for an amazing 164 hours, and thanks to you, this year we raised…


That is amazing. We cannot thank you all enough for all of your generosity, your humor, and your constant support as we drive from Tucson to Las Vegas, and back again. We are so blown away by the giving nature of our community, and how much you donated to Child’s Play Charity.

While we may have parked the bus for another year, don’t worry! If you want to re-watch your favorite moments, check out our youtube, and keep an eye on our social media for news on next year’s run. But for now, we’re all going to bed.


Thank you. You made it a great one. We’ll see you next year.
