Burners Without Borders

Burners Without Boarders

Burners Without Borders (BWB) is a program that launched following the 2005 Burning Man event, when several participants headed into the Hurricane Katrina disaster area to help people rebuild their devastated communities. Over the course of the following eight months, BWB volunteers gifted over US$1 million dollars worth of reconstruction and debris removal to the residents of Mississippi.

Since that time, BWB has emerged as a community led, grassroots group that addresses needs where existing cultural and societal systems are under-resourced. In keeping with the Principles of Civic Responsibility and Communal Effort, Burning Man Australia encourages Burners to gift their time and resources to areas of need in their own communities. You can connect and communicate with other burners on the BWB Australia Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/bwbaustralia/
