Following the 2005 Burning Man event, several participants headed south into the Hurricane Katrina disaster area to help people rebuild their devastated communities. They focused their initial efforts on rebuilding a destroyed Vietnamese temple in Biloxi, Mississippi. Five months later, that job done, they’ve moved to a different Mississippi community, and continue to work hard — gifting their time — to help those in need. Read their story, and learn how you can help.
This is one reason I am proud to be a Burner. So much for being self-absorbed hedonistic hippie ravers!
