It’s Desert Bus time again, and I was thrilled to send in two cat cubes this year. For those of you that don’t know, Desert Bus is a live-streamed, week long fundraiser for Child’s Play charity, and it is pretty much my favorite thing on the internet. It’s in it’s 9th year, and for the past few years they’ve sent out a call for crafters to donate crafts to auction and raffle to help raise money, and this year my contribution was these cubes!
There are better pictures on the website, but here are some in-progress pictures from this year’s batch.
The Question Mark Block cube will be up for giveaway sometime today between 1 pm and 9 pm EST , so obviously that means I’ll just have to watch DB all day. This one came together really well, and I got to learn how to make little plushies!
Edit: The giveaway has finished, and we raised $1739.10! Thank you to everyone who bid, and congrats to Kuroji Zero who won!
The Cat-panion Cube will be in the Cats, Cats, Cats! silent auction lot that runs from 5 am to 1 pm EST on Thursday. I’ve made some improvements to the cube from last year, and I’m hoping the early morning crowd will hype the cat lot and raise at least as much as last year.
Edit: This silent auction has also finished, and we raised $1100!
If you have an idea for a custom cube, hit me up on Etsy and we can come up with something awesome. And stay tuned for Desert Bus next year, I’ve got a few ideas and hope to be able to contribute again. 🙂
