The World’s Dullest Gamethon Works!

I just read about the world’s dullest gamethon, Desert Bus for Hope. Dull – driving a virtual bus from Tucson to Las Vegas in real time? It’s gotta be! But, by golly, it works!

This year the group raised over $635,000 and passed the $2 million mark for overall cash given to the charity Child’s Play, which helps children in hospitals, shelters, and advocacy centers.

Check out the story – and cool photo – in this NPR article, “Terrible Video Game, Great Fundraiser: Meet Desert Bus for Hope.”

About Lotus Greene

I started the blog called "Educating Lotus" in 2011, shortly after I began exploring the virtual world Second Life. With friends I met there, I migrated my virtual life to World of Warcraft (WoW) and joined an educators' guild. Lotus Greene is my gamer name, one I kept when I started another blog in 2015 called "Not Quite Ignored," which originally focused on the lighter side of news and now also includes political news and opinions.
