For dreamers like us, (and probably you), a community for us to declare our deepest wishes and receive support sounds like... a dream come true. That's why we're delighted to share this newly-released film on Burning Man and Project Dreambox, a movement founded by Teddy Saunders to get people to share their intentions online so that they can be supported. The film is a whimsical look at how Burning Man dreams are created through friendship, exploration and the pursuit of imagination.

Saunders, (creator of the wildly popular video "Oh the Places You'll Go!") tells us, "We've collected thousands of dreams that people have declared to the DreamBox video camera. We have discovered that whether anyone sees the dream or not, this declaration has significantly changed many lives. Now, we aim to take the project into the rest of the world with a website we built called DreamUs . It's a place to keep track of the goals that you want to accomplish in life. With each dream, the user has the option to publish their dream publicly. This way other people can follow their dream and try to help them fulfill needed goals."

Project Dreambox's mission is "to build a community of like-minded dreamers and supporters, all with the common goal to empower people who are making positive change in the world." Now, with DreamUs, the team hopes to continue giving people a platform to share their visions and to make them realities through positive gentle nudges and collaboration from the community.They're also looking to pin down the next destination where they can allow 24 hour access to the DreamBox for one week straight. Where would YOU like to see the Dreambox?
