$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!
