About Mandela Day
“It is in your hands to create and a better world for all who live in it”
Nelson Mandela was not only the first democratically elected South African president, he was a much-needed voice that promoted peace, equality, and justice all around the world.
On Mandela Day, 18 July, everyone is encouraged to spend 67 minutes of their time in service of helping others in need. These 67 minutes are in appreciation of the 67 years that Nelson Mandela spent fighting for social justice, equality, and human rights for all. Source
Tata Madiba always believed that everyone has the power to make the world a warmer and safer and better place, no matter how small or big your acts of kindness may be.
This day and every day presents us with an opportunity to do help make a positive difference.

This year their aim was to attempt to break the World Record for the largest food can mosaic in the shape of Nelson Mandela’s portrait in both Cape Town and Johannesburg!
Other ways we could assist were with sandwich making, peeling and chopping vegetables and knitting squares for blankets!
The result? We assisted in breaking the World Guinness Record for the largest food can mosaic, thousands and thousands of sandwiches made, and more!
Let’s continue to keep our Tata Madiba’s spirit alive through the commitment to build a prosperous, fair, inclusive world, leaving no one alive.
