Nelson Mandela once said, “We can change the world and make it a better place. It is in your hands to make a difference.” In commemoration of the great Nelson Mandela, the global community celebrates International Mandela Day on his birthday each year. It is a day to honor the many ways Nelson Mandela gave back to his community and the world. On July 18th, International Mandela Day asks that everyone give 67 minutes of their time in service to others, signifying the 67-plus years that the former South African President spent dedicated to promoting a culture of peace and freedom, and helping our world.
