Happy Mandela Day!
Celebrate Mandela Day 2014 this Friday 7/18/2014 by giving the gift of time.
Do your part to take action and inspire change throughout the world by spending 67 minutes of your time – one minute for every year of Mr. Mandela’s public service – contributing in a positive way that serves others and ultimately makes the world a better place.
Mandela Day was inspired as a global call to action for people to recognize their ability to have a positive effect on others around them by embracing the core values that Mandela shared, including; democracy, freedom, equality, diversity, reconciliation, and respect for others.
The message behind Mandela Day is simple – each individual has the ability and the responsibility to change the world for the better.
Mandela Day is more than a celebration of Nelson Mandela’s life and legacy; it is a global movement to honor his life’s work, consistently taking steps forward, no matter how big or small, to change the world for the better.
“What counts in life is not the mere fact that we have lived. It is what difference we have made to the lives of others that will determine the significance of the life we lead.”
– Nelson Mandela
