Look to the horizon: it’s not a mirage, it’s a Desert Bus for Hope!

We’re LIVE and back on the road for our fifteenth (!) year. We’re doing half our shifts in-person and half remote, but near or far, we’re here for the children.

The drive begins with $30,780 already raised so let’s hit the gas and keep going. HONK HONK!
