I thought I would take a little bit of time today to highlight just one of the many interesting projects that Mercy Corps is heading in Mongolia.

Our Goal

Posted by: Scott In: Pre-Rally

I’ve been posting a lot on the adventure aspects of the rally of late. I must admit that that is one of the big draws for me—the chance to travel to foreign lands and interact with different people and cultures. But that’s not the main goal of this trip.

As most of you probably know by now, we are in this to raise money for our main charity, Mercy Corps. Since its inception in 1979, Mercy Corps has donated over $1.5 billion in assistance to people in 106 nations across the globe. They take a “teach a man how to fish” philosophy to philanthropy—aiming at the root of the problem instead of just providing temporary assistance. Their main goals over the past thirty years have been education, medical care, training, and clean water and sanitation.

Back from my trip to Japan, had a great time, like always. Even got some work done, amazingly.

Stay tuned for more updates in the coming weeks, as well as some web site tweaks and changes.

I’ll leave you with a letter that I received from one of our charities, Mercy Corps, last week:
