Would you like to own an entire hour of Desert Bus for Hope? Today, you can!

Owning an hour of Desert Bus comes with such perks as:

  • The personal satisfaction of knowing that you’ve extended our misery another 60 minutes
  • A stellar excuse to twiddle your fingers mischievously and say something evil
  • nothing else, really.

So, if you’re a charitable, frugal sadist, (you know who you are!) donate and get in while the gettin’s cheap!

Each hour of our time increases in price by 7%. That doesn’t sound like much now (and it isn’t) but it increases fast.

AS IS TRADITION Loading Ready Run has donated the first $100 (30 hours). The rest is up to you!

Here’s a basic cost breakdown of the first $5000 of Desert Bus for Hope donations:
