Everybody knows Nelson Mandela, worldwide he is one of the most recognised living icon for freedom and human rights. But not everybody knows that the UN has declared the 18.7. of every year the official Nelson Mandela Day.
And no, it is no public holiday, and the only thing, one is asked is to dedicate 67 minutes for a good cause – symbolising the 67 years, Nelson Mandela was sacrificing for a free South Africa and the recognition that human rights are for all human mankind without any difference. There is still some time until the 18.7. -but I guess you can already think of what you can do in the 67 minutes on the 18.7.2011. And maybe HOPE Cape Town might be a good cause to promote? Just an idea – just a suggestion for those reading the blog… 🙂
