First batch of helmets on their way!

by Kara

As I mentioned in a prior post, one of the projects I'm working on is to collect helmets for child jockeys to wear during horse races. Good news! The first batch of helmets are en route to Mongolia! Thanks to some very dedicated folks in the U.S. at least 23 kids in Arkhangai will be safer when competing in horse races this summer. Not only will they be safer, but they will look cool. Along with the helmets, a bunch of awesome helmet covers are being sent. Also, various types of knee pads are being shipped too! 

The organizer of this shipment, Kate, is somebody who I was very fortunate to come into contact with. She has taken a huge leadership role in working with me to organize this project. Thanks Kate!

Only 77 more to go until we reach our goal of 100!
You can help us reach our goal!

For updated info about this project check out my other blog:! (A website is currently being developed.)

Check out these pics of what's being sent - more pics to come of the packages arrival!
