Desert Bus has officially raised $5,000,000 over our 12 years of fundraising.

There are many things we could say about the incredible generosity of our community. Instead, we have just two words, because we can’t stop the bus and we have more money to raise.

Thank You.

We did it, I can’t believe we did it. Your donations have gotten us to a lifetime total $3,500,000! I can’t speak so I’m going to let some GIF’s do the talking.

We aren’t done yet though, we still have a couple of days of Bussing to go. Stick with us and let’s see what we can do for the kids, together.

db9_kate_chocolaterainThanks to Max Temkin and the folks over at Cards Against Humanity, and to all the donors out there who contributed to the surprise donation drive. With your help Desert Bus 9 has passed Desert Bus 8 in total amount raised.

We say year after year that at some point we have to plateau, that one year we’re going to not up the ante on the donation total.

You keep proving us wrong.

Thank you

And you Donated!

We have hit $3,000,000.00 Lifetime donations to Child’s Play!!!!!!

This blogger is lost for words. The only thing I can say is how amazed we here at Desert Bus HQ are. This event started life as a bunch of folks in a living room playing a really silly game hoping to raise the lofty goal of $5,000.00. Each year we have grown leaps and bounds, both in amount raised and the people involved. It’s hard to believe that we have a volunteer staff of over 45 individuals. This team works year round in order to put this event on, but we don’t do it alone.

We laugh, we cry, we sing, we dance, we sleep (not well) and we bus. But you are the reason that this event works, you are the reason that we put this on year after year. You are the reason that we can continue to help children all around the world. You are the viewers and donors that make this event what it is. Desert Bus for Hope, a bunch of random people from around the world coming together to do something good.

On behalf of everyone here at Desert Bus for Hope, thank you. Let’s keep helping the kids.
