18 July brings with it Mandela Day. The Mandela Day campaign message is simple: Tata Mandela gave 67 years of his life fighting for the rights of humanity. All that is asked in return is for you to give 67 minutes of your time, whether it’s supporting your chosen charity or serving your local community. Mandela Day is a call to action for individuals – for people everywhere – to take responsibility for changing the world into a better place, one small step at a time, just as Tata Mandela did. I really love the “Pay It Forward” philosophy and this fits in perfectly with that.
