“Take Action; Inspire Change; Make Every Day a Mandela Day.”
The Mandela Day campaign message is simple: Mr Mandela gave 67 years of his life fighting for the rights of humanity. Could you give 67 minutes to begin changing the world into a better place, one small step at a time, just as Mr Mandela did?
