A Little Car Goes a Long Way

The Adventurists (the group that organizes the rally) just sent us an update on what happened with the cars from the 2008 rally, and it really sounds like they’re doing a lot of good!

“The 2008 vehicles were officially presented to the people of Zavkhan province, one of the poorest provinces in Mongolia… Over 80 of the little steeds were pimped out and polished up and put into public service as very shiny mini ambulances, doctors cars, vet mobiles, disaster response vehicles and police cars. A fine purpose for any rally car. The remaining cars are being sold by representatives of the Zavkhan Development and Disaster Fund and the money will be directed to the projects being run under their umbrella.”

The Brood is Complete! Let’s Welcome the Silver Bullet (unless you have a better name)!

Introducing the latest edition to our family – our Silver 1999 Micra Inspiration!! The Silver Bullet makes us laugh, but if you can think of a better name, send’em in! 


$4,000 for Mercy Corps – Thank you, Carl and Jacki!

The Airag Addicts are thrilled to announce a $4,000 donation from the Carl R and Jacklyn F Meurk Charitable Trust to Mercy Corps! Carl and Jacki are happy to help Mercy Corps continue to assist Mongolia’s rural populations in becoming more self-sufficient.

This donation along with all of the other wonderful donations we have received will have a major impact in Mongolia’s poor rural regions:

* $2 will buy one tree sapling to help Mongolian herders to not overgraze their pastures
* $10 will allow one unemployed or low-income person to attend a business skills training course
* $39 will allow an unemployed woman to attend a 30-day training course on vegetable growing
* $130 dollars will buy textbooks for children in five rural schools
* $175 allows a family to purchase a goat, which is easy to care for, provides the family with milk, and can be groomed for high-value raw materials like cashmere.
* $590 will fully stock a school library

Thank you Carl and Jacki for your very generous donation to this important cause!
