Here we go again! Black Rock City, Republic of Burning Man. Countdown 1: two months to burn. Countdown 2: one month to get the Post Office funded - we 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!

how is this post office different from the OTHER BRC post office?

are you just a totally unrelated thing?

or are you another branch of the postal system.

We are another branch/theme camp entirely. A city of 50,000 people needs more postal fun. We have our own commemorative cancellation stamp, postcards, o-grams and bureaucracy!

That answers that.

When I was a kid I used to pray every night for a new bicycle.
Then I realised that the Lord doesn't work that way so I stole one and asked Him to forgive me.

Even more than financial donations, the PO needs participation! Check out all the ways you can avoid being a dreaded BM spectator: http://brcpo2oh.weebly.com/participate.html

I had a delightful window experience with the BRCPO2.Oh last year, and I fully intend to volunteer a bit delivering mail this year!
