Mandela Day, on the 18th July, celebrates the idea that each individual has the power to transform the world, the ability to make an imprint. Nelson Mandela has spent 67 years making the world a better place. Organisers of Nelson Mandela Day are asking you for 67 minutes. It is a global call to action for people to recognise their individual power to make an imprint and change the world around them.
‘We would be honoured if such a day can serve to bring together people around the world to fight poverty and promote peace and reconciliation,’ according to a statement issued on Mr Mandela’s behalf.
A global movement for positive change begins with small actions. MandelaDay.com was created to inspire people to embrace Mr Mandela’s values and make an imprint through service to their communities.
The hope is to empower people to find opportunities that address social issues such as: Human Rights & Civil Liberties, Hunger & Poverty, Education & Literacy, Health Issues & Medicine, Environment, Ecology & Energy Conservation, Social Enterprise & Economic Development.
This could mean any number of volunteer activities in your community, including, feeding the homeless, being a big brother/big sister, or visiting someone who is sick.
