Did you know that Desert Bus for Hope is a lot of work? Like, a LOT of work? Our organizers and volunteers put in an incredible amount of effort both during the run and in the year leading up to it to make sure that everything goes as smoothly as possible.

After the run is over we host an after-party to thank everyone for their hard work and dedication. This auction is your chance to be a part of that as the Official Sponsor of The Desert Bus for Hope 2019 After-Party. You will receive a certificate honouring you as the Official Sponsor, and we will make James always refer to the after-party as “The Desert Bus for Hope 2019 After-Party, Sponsored by (Your Name)” every time he talks about it. He does not know this clause has been included.

There is still an hour left to bid on this, as it closes at 11:00PM PST! Our volunteers and organizers thank you for all your support! <3

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!
