Mandela Day: Change the world in 67 minutes

Mandela Day 18 July: it's the one day each year that we are encouraged to give back just 67 minutes of our time. Considering we are blessed with 525,600 minutes every year, that's hardly denting anyone's precious schedule.

Someone once told me that whenever you're having a bad day, doing something for someone else will cheer you right up. You might not change the world but you'll change someone's world. So come on guys & girls, go spread a little happiness!For the Nelson Mandela Foundation, Mandela Day actions, no matter how big or small, should consistently focus on the realisation or restoration of dignity and empowerment through contributions. For the Foundation, the following focus areas have particular significance:
  1. Education and literacy
  2. Food security
  3. Shelter & infrastructure
  4. Environment
