- David MagicHands, HeeBee elder
"Over the almost twenty years of the HeeBeeGeeBee Healers’ existence, many thousands of Burner camps have come into existence and left. Key to HBGB's longevity is the passion and commitment to our mission that we bring to the Playa each year. Serving as Black Rock City's healing oasis, transforming the world one Burner at a time, and interacting with hundreds of thousands of people has enabled the HBGBs to shape a culture of service and caring at Burning Man, and through it, have a major impact on the evolution of Festival culture in the U.S. and throughout the world. Many people feel that a big chunk of the developed world's hope resides in the values we express and what we learn about each other and ourselves, in Festival culture. We are caregivers. We are healers. Most of all, we are lovegivers."
