Welcome to the Chickobo Shift Parade! Each Desert Bus for Hope shift now has a chocobo chick representative! Orange for Dawn Guard, red for Alpha Flight, blue for Night Watch, purple for Zeta Shift, and chaotic rainbow for the inevitable Omega Shift. Each chick also comes with their own shift banner attached to stands via magnets. You know what that means? You also get epic ‘fridge magnets!

Each chocobo chick is lovingly constructed with acrylic yarn, polyfil, wired poseable feet, and semi-precious stone eyes (jade, obsidian, tiger’s eye and amethyst). The banners are constructed of felt with embroidered detailing, and reasonably powerful magnets sewn between felt layers. Stands are made of wood, clay, and iron wire for the magnets to easily stick to, with tiny green trees to mark their front side and dark green velvet underneath to assure no furniture will be harmed in the display of your magnificent parade.

Sign up for or log in to your Donor Account, then donate $5.55 (or multiples thereof) for a chance to win this prize. We’ll run this giveaway until 4am PST.

There is less than an hour to go on the final silent auctions of Desert Bus 2018! See what’s on offer below!

Provide a keg of beer for the Desert Bus after-party! The high bidder for this lot will receive an official “Beer Provider” certificate, our eternal gratitude, and the satisfaction of knowing they helped get the Desert Bus crew tipsy (on something other than sleep deprivation) after a week of utter insanity. Currently sitting at $2696.90!


Do you harbour a deep desire for a chocobo of your very own, but have found they’re just too big? Drake Chocobo Ranch has the solution for you, in the form of Sable the House Chocobo, with a high bid of $1666.66!


Soft as Elven skin, and warm as the fires of Mount Doom, your little one will be as content as Hobbits at a feast bundled up in The Hobbit Baby Blanket, going for $600!


These auctions close at 6PM PST!

Let’s talk about some of the fine items we have going for auction now, or in the near future!

Bidding ends on these three silent auction items at 6pm local time (about 2 hours from now). First up is Ch0c0b0 Charlene, a one-of-a-kind, fully-poseable, 10-inch Chocobo, handmade from acrylic yarn! There is also a World of Goo light box: this unique item makes a fine addition to any room and is a sure conversation-starter! Rounding out the selection is the Desert Bus Fleece Wreath, lovingly handcrafted by our own Tally! Say “Happy Holidays” in style this year while giving props to your favourite livestreamed charity event! Makes a great gift!

We also have a live auction coming up at 7:30pm this evening!

 Leonard the Not-Yet-Elder-God is another piece from that Michelangelo of Plush we know as Tally. This 10-pound, 5-foot mega-xeno-cephalopod hopes to one day make a feast of the cosmos, and is a great hugger!

Of course, this is a one-of-a-kind piece, so make sure to get your bids in because you will literally never find another item like this!
