This year’s fourth annual Desert Bus for Hope charity gaming drive will benefit from the backing of managed hosting service provider ServInt.
Canadian comedy troupe LoadingReadyRun puts on the charity initiative each year, which consists of members playing the Penn & Teller-developed game of monotony Desert Bus, which has players man the steering wheel of a bus headed from Tucson, Arizona to Las Vegas, Nevada.
Such a trip takes eight hours in real time, and upon competition, players are awarded a single point.
Last year the charity drive, which benefits Child’s Play, raised over $140,000.
LoadingReadyRun’s Kathleen De Vere thanked ServInt for their contribution, and added, “With their hosting, we know everyone will be able to see us as we suffer for the children.”
This year’s Desert Bus for Hope event kicks off tomorrow, November 19, at 6PM PT.
