Today is Nelson Mandela Day!

NMF-MandelaDay-Logo-INT-Colour-NEGToday is Nelson Mandela Day!  Celebrate his birthday by answering his global call to service.

Nelson Mandela believed that every person has the power to change the world. To honor his 67 years of public service, people around the world are being asked to designate 67 minutes of their time to make a difference in the lives of others. What will you do?

Here are just some ways you can make today, and every day, a Mandela Day:  Organize a food or clothing drive, make sandwiches to give to the homeless, clean up a local park, arrange a visit to a nursing home, help an elderly neighbor with a chore or an errand, volunteer to help young children read or play a sport, make cookies for the police or fire department, or make a donation to a local charity.
