“Upon arriving in the Chinggis Khaan Airport, I was greeted by so many people, children and adults alike,” wrote the star. "I was excited to be here for the first time – especially for something that I love to do, which is charity. Mongolia has some of the worst air pollution in the world and even before I landed, I could see the smog. The new government wanted to do promotion for clean air and asked me to help out. I didn’t just want to come to Mongolia to do one thing, so I asked if I could do charity as well.
“A lot of people said to me, “Jackie, thank you for coming to Mongolia.” I said, “Why not? The planet belongs to us. I am the citizen of the world.” When I am in Mongolia, I am Mongolian. If I am in Beijing, I am Beijingnese. Ha ha. If every person thought that they belonged to the planet, they would treat every country as if it were their own country. They would treat people as their own people, no matter if they were white, black, red or yellow. Also if we belonged to the planet, we would treat the environment better too."
