Tsagaan Sar Food Drive Challenge

Join the 2018 Tsagaan Sar Food Drive Challenge and help make the holiday great for some special families in need in Mongolia. Help my family deliver boxes full of holiday essentials (and basic pantry staples) to families in Darkhan-Uul and Orkhon Province that are struggling.

UPDATE 2/2: We'll be donating 50kg bags of flour and full sets of kheviin boov (ceremonial cookies used for the holiday table) to 30+ families so we can expand our outreach. Tsagaan Sar begins on February 16 this year. The closing date of the campaign has been moved forward to February 6!

Seniors and heads of households take out high-interest loans and pawn household items and family heirlooms to pay for a meal that symbolizes all of their hopes for a prosperous new year. Providing families with these essentials will give them a truly auspicious start to the Year of the Earth Dog. The Tsagaan Sar boxes will go to families most in need in Nomgon soum and in Darkhan.

If we go over the goal of $1,500, we'll purchase more for more families! Last year, $1,982 was raised. It would be amazing to exceed that goal, but we'll start with the basics.
