Burners Without Borders is a loose collection of Burning Man participants (or "Burners") who are actively engaged in community-based, civic volunteer projects throughout the year, and around the globe. Their efforts are characterized first and foremost by the adherence to Burning Man's Ten Principles, as well as the skills they learned on the playa around radical self-reliance and community-minded gifting.

Burners Without Borders was unexpectedly and spontaneously born out of Burners' assisting with Hurricane Katrina relief in Biloxi and Pearlington, Mississippi... and it has since grown to include a wide variety of activities around the globe.

Any Burner interested in experiencing the Burning Man ethos throughout the year would be hard pressed to find a better way to do so than to get involved with Burners Without Borders activities — or to start one's own initiative.
