What are you doing this Mandela Day?
Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela’s birthday has become a day on which we honour his 67 years of dedication to our country by giving 67 minutes of our time to a positive initiative in our communities. This movement has spread beyond our borders; now, individuals all over the world are encouraged to donate their time, their unwanted clothing and furniture, and their energy and skills.
You can take part by volunteering or just by saying thank you to people who do thankless jobs to keep the community safe. Looking for something to do this Mandela day? Take a look at this events page on how to spend your 67 minutes.
