Ride the Desert Bus

Ends on 25 Nov 2009

All aboard to ride the Desert bus! The Desert Bus for Hope is a charity video game marathon where the members of Loading Ready Run comedy troupe, stars of The Escapist's ENN and Unskippable, play the game Desert Bus for as long as donations come in. Last year, they played the Desert Bus game for five days straight, setting a record total of $70,423 donations! We're hoping to help them beat that record this year, and we'll need your help! All proceeds from Desert Bus for Hope goes to benefit Child's Play, a charity that donates over a million dollars to Children's Hospitals worldwide every year.

The Escapist wants our community to ride on the Desert Bus and pack that bus full of support. All Escapist community riders will have a chance of winning a limited edition badge, depending on where the bus stops and we will keep a running total of how many people are along for the ride!

The rules for participation are simple; pick a Ticket below to the city you think the bus will have last been to when the campaign ends, either Tucson or Las Vegas. The marathon itself could last for days, so keep watching to see if you win the badge or not. At the end of the marathon, if you have chosen correctly, you will get a new, limited edition badge.
