Nelson Mandela Foundation - Global charitable initiative 2016/17

Our current global charitable initiative is in support of the Nelson Mandela Foundation. The Nelson Mandela Foundation sets out to deliver to the world a resource on the life and times of Nelson Mandela, and to promote sustainable solutions to critical social problems – shelter, education, literacy, food and security.

Challenge 67 – the theme of our fundraising

Mandela Day was launched in 2009 as a global call to action which celebrates the idea that each individual has the power to transform the world, and the ability to make an impact. The Mandela Day campaign message is: “Nelson Mandela has fought for social justice for 67 years. We’re asking you to start with 67 minutes.

In the spirit of the 67 minutes for Mandela campaign, we are appealing to all colleagues, friends and contacts to get involved in any type of activity with a 67 theme to help raise funds for this initiative.

The message behind the campaign and the legacy of Nelson Mandela is simple – that each individual has the ability and responsibility to make an impact through public service. The call to action is clear: take action, inspire change and empower communities everywhere. Through a series of events and initiatives, we aim to raise US$250,000 for the Foundation.
