The only way to play Desert Bus

The ninth annual Desert Bus for Hope charity event raised over $677,000 in donations to Child’s Play, edging out the organization’s largest single-year final donation dollars of $643,242 back in 2014. In addition, the sum of Desert Bus’s total fundraising goals in the last nine years surpassed $3 million dollars. Exact lifetime total for Desert Bus for Hope is $3,112,329.72. The event ended late Friday, November 20th.

As noted earlier, 2014’s Desert Bus for Hope raked over $640,000 for Child’s Play and lasted 158 hours (over 6 days). This year, the charity event lasted for 159 hours (6 days, 15 hours), ousting last year’s time by an hour. Desert Bus, a monotonous game in which you drive a bus for hours from Tucson, Arizona to Las Vegas, Nevada, was originally for the Sega CD game Penn & Teller’s Smoke & Mirrors.
