For those of you who aren’t aware, today, July 18th, is Mandela Day so I wanted to address it, especially since I’m in South Africa right now.
Mandela day is a yearly celebration where people come together on Nelson Mandela’s birthday to celebrate the former South African president’s life and amazing achievements! He is known throughout the world for his efforts to help people recognize their ability to make a difference and leave an imprint on the world. We live in a society where anything is possible if you put forth the effort, and Nelson Mandela embraced that idea and encouraged others to do the same. Change begins with small actions!
This day serves as a global call to action for people to use their own individual power to do good. There’s so much we all can do today so I hope you all take the time to go out and help those in need. Even something as small as donating clothes to Good Will — won’t take up much of your time and can help so many people!
Today is a day to be selfless! Happy Birthday Nelson Mandela!!!
