“There is no passion to be found playing small – in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living.”

Nelson Mandela

 

It has been over 2 weeks since the universally revered leader was admitted to hospital. Tomorrow is Mandela’s birthday, July 18, was declared Nelson Mandela International Day by the UN General Assembly in 2009 as a recognition of his contribution to the culture of peace and freedom.

What is Nelson Mandela Day?

The essence of Nelson Mandela Day is to inspire individuals to take action to help change the world for the better, and in doing so build a global movement for good. Ultimately it seeks to empower communities everywhere. “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. Therefore the task is that everyone gives 67 minutes of their time, whether it’s supporting your chosen charity or serving your local community.
