Desert Bus for Hope

I'm sorry I haven't been posting as much this week. At first I was feeling under the weather and then Desert Bus started!

For those of you who don`t know, Desert Bus is one of the worst video games ever. The idea is that you drive from Tuscon, Arizona to Las Vegas, Nevada in real time. This takes 8 hours and you are driving a bus that lists slightly to the right. There`s no scenery but at hour five a bug splats onto the windshield. Once you reach Las Vegas you earn one point and then have to turn around and do it all over again.

Why am I telling you this? Well, local comedy sketch group, LoadingReadyRun is raising money for Child's Play, a charity for kids that provide them with video games in hospital so their there time doesn't suck so much.

At this very moment they're driving. There are four drivers that have four hour shifts. People come by to hang out and deliver food and donations. There's a driver cam, a bus cam and a chat room. It's a great charity for kids and is hilarious because the more you donate, the longer the guys have to drive.

If you're interested in donating then click the title of the post to go to their Desert Bus website.
