No matter how little your contribution, Mandela Day is all about making a difference in the world, just like Nelson Mandela did every single day.
It was his obligation to serve the people of South Africa, whom he saw as his first and most important responsibility, and to lead them by example. To honour Nelson Mandela's legacy, we must accept his call to action and make positive change a part of our lives. This is your chance to join a worldwide movement for good in the spirit of Madiba and his desire to spread social justice and freedom for everyone.
On Mandela Day itself, individuals are asked to devote 67 minutes to assisting those in need. These 67 minutes honour the 67 years Nelson Mandela spent fighting for justice, equality, and human rights for everyone.
