Around this time each year, there’s a tradition in our house. That tradition is called Desert Bus For Hope.
In a nutshell, Desert Bus is a fundraiser for Child’s Play, a charity that works with hospital and domestic violence shelters to provide children with entertainment and distraction through video games and toys.
Since 2007, the team at LoadingReadyRun, a sketch comedy group out of Victoria, British Columbia, has been raising money to support Child’s Play by playing a video game called Desert Bus while entertaining thousands on their Twitch stream, giving away super cool donated and crafted items, and basically having an amazing time.
Here’s the stream that will be live from now until likely next Thursday, November 15th:

This is something we look forward to all year long — like Christmas, but more internetty. It’s a fantastic show, the charity is so deserving, and the community is heartwarming.
I hope you’ll watch along with us this week. We’ll be retweeting them and sharing IG posts in our stories all week to show our support — and entering in lots of giveaways, of course!
Happy Desert Bus season, everyone!
