We still need your help to get the Post Office funded!

A unique and distinctive culture emerges from the Burning Man experience. Rooted in the values expressed by the Ten Principles, this culture is manifested around the globe through art, communal effort, and innumerable individual acts of self-expression. To many, it is a way of life.

Here we go! Black Rock City, Republic of Burning Man. Countdown: ONE month to burn! and just one month to get the Post Office funded - we still need your help!

Kickstarter: http://pdx.be/brcpo

Have you ever mailed yourself or someone you love a post card from the playa? Well, The Black Rock City International Post Office Village @ 9:00 Plaza needs you. Your support enables us to transport, build & store our super funky & fun themecamp™ so you can send mail to people you love. Inside our artistically crafted walls, participants are in for radical participation and fun from the Black Rock City community*, with gifts like bureaucratic performance pieces, postcard making, stickers, stamps and hilarious international shenanagrins. All of those gifts, plus mail!, are spread over Black Rock City and the world each and every day through the PO.

The rewards for donating to this year's amazing Post Office have all been generously donated. 100% of your donation goes directly to supporting our art. To see photographs of the beautiful rewards, please visit http://brcpo2oh.weebly.com/fundraising--donating.html. To see the PO camp, head over to http://brcpo2oh.weebly.com/camp.html.

And better yet, to donate, please visit the Post Office Village site at Kickstarter, at http://pdx.be/brcpo.

We hope you choose to support the PO ~ and send your love out from Burning Man, too.

See you at the burn!

I put in what I could which was less than I would have like. Last year the best part of my Burn was spent distributing the post. The best of Luck to you.

Thanks for supporting us. The fundraiser is successful and the PO is going to be so fun this year! Bring stamps but more importantly bring your postaliciously participating self to volunteer to deliver mail or work a window, send E-Mail Playgrams before you leave and tell all your not-traveling-to-the-playa friends and family to send them to you, make post cards, basically, GO POSTAL at Burning Man!
