Tomorrow is Nelson Mandela’s 92nd birthday, but it is MUCH more than that too…
It is also the 2nd Annual: ‘Nelson Mandela International Day’ – The guy has done so much for my country (South Africa) and so much to unite the world, that the United Nations General Assembly declared July 18 Nelson Mandela International Day in recognition of the former South African president’s contribution to the culture of peace and freedom world wide.
What can you do? Well 2 simple things, the first is, spend just 67 minutes doing something good for your local community tomorrow on Mandela Day. This is to signify the 67 YEARS Mandela spent fighting for Social Justice. It doesn’t matter where in the world you live, try and spend just 1 minute per year that Mandela spent, helping out tomorrow!

Then 2nd thing is to spread the word about Mandela Day, and you can do so in part by sharing this post. Please post a comment of your support below and I will donate an additional 100Rand to Nelson Mandela’s foundation ($13.70). Once you have posted your comment, please share this post. For every person that posts a comment on this thread by Monday I will donate an additional 100Rand. This means that even if you personally can’t afford to donate, I will do it for you, as a direct result of your action (Taking a minute to post a comment of support for the great man).
