Open Letter to Burning Man, Please Help The Life Cube, which was recently suspended from Kickstarter (-$10,000)

Dear Burning Man, We need your help. The Life Cube has just been suspended on Kickstarter and had over $10,000 in donations instantly refunded. Kickstarter claims that someone made donations in a manner that resembled fraud and will not consider reversing their decision. But that’s not important right now. What’s important is that the Life Cube needs your help. We’ve set up a new fundraiser at Indiegogo and are hoping that you in the Burning Man community would consider helping us out in our time of need. Even $10 helps.

Please help the Life Cube get back to $10,000 and hit our goal of $15,000 so that we can build the Life Cube for the good of Black Rock City.

Please Donate:

About The Life Cube Project

The Life Cube creates electrifying public installations emphasizing interactive and collaborative art. Its dual mission connects art with community, and inspires participants to articulate and share their goals and dreams. This project encourages participants to look at their past, engage in the present, and set goals for the future. It is based on the artist’s belief that if you write down what you want to accomplish in life, the chances of attaining it is much, much higher! Tens of thousands of "Cube-ists" have already been positively impacted by their experience with the Life Cube Project, at Burning Man, in downtown Las Vegas and beyond. We're in the planning stages to bring the Life Cube Project to cities and arts festivals across the country and around the world! At each installation, local volunteers, teachers and school children, artists, builders, performers and other visionaries interact with the Cube every hour of every day. Its exterior, which incorporates many writeable and climbable surfaces, is a constantly changing swirl of painted murals, drawings, and handwritten messages contributed by the community. The Cube is brilliantly illuminated at night, attracting nocturnal artists and celebrants attracted by the colorful light show, with spots and lasers serving as a beacon in the evening skies. The Life Cube encourages the expression of goals, wishes, dreams, and aspirations in mural art, on wish-stick postcards, and with personal inscriptions on message boards. On selected evenings and weekends, area musicians and entertainers perform, culminating in a special closing event that gathers thousands of residents and visitors in a magical community celebration. At the end of the installation, in a spectacular fiery ceremony, the Cube and all of the gathered wishes are burned together and sent up into the Universe in a sacred shower of sparks and flame. Since 2010, the Life Cube Project has inspired over a thousand donors to contribute funds supporting the project, and even more have given of their time, talent and spirit. We're grateful for your support, as we hope to bring the Life Cube Project to more communities of artists and dreamers in days to come!
