The Nelson Mandela Foundation today announced Mandela Day 2015, urging the public to register their actions on http://www.mandeladay.com.
“Nelson Mandela’s legacy has created the opportunity for us to achieve a bright future,” commented Sello Hatang, Chief Executive of the Nelson Mandela Foundation. “Madiba aptly said: 'What counts in life is not the mere fact that we have lived. It is what difference we have made to the lives of others that will determine the significance of the life we lead.'”
It was Nelson Mandela’s humble humanitarian philosophy and how he sought to live it every day that made him one of the most inspiring leaders in the world – free yourself, free others and serve every day.
Madiba believed that every person has the ability to change the world for the better, no matter how big or small their contribution. In his twilight years, he encouraged all of us to carry his life’s work forward when he famously said: “It is in your hands now....”
In honouring Madiba’s legacy, the Nelson Mandela Foundation asks that you create or join an action on the Mandela Day website, share your story with the world, and help inspire global change.
The hashtags for Mandela Day are #Time2Serve and #MandelaDay. The website, http://www.mandeladay.com, has all of the resources needed for visitors to choose a meaningful action in memory of Nelson Mandela.
