Make Every Day a Mandela Day

Mandela Day

We are all aware of the current situation of our former president Nelson Mandela. We all know that his birthday is also upon us. This day is known as Mandela Day / Madiba Day and we would like to invite and encourage you as a loyal Junk Mail user to go out to your community and embrace the true ubuntu spirit.

You can do whatever you feel like doing. You could pay a visit to the Jacaranda Children’s home and spend some time with the kids there. If reaching out towards abused animals, you can always pay Wet Nose a visit and spend some time with them. Make sure you get involved with some of these organizations in Cape Town too. If you are keen on having a braai, why not make some boeries and hand them out in your neighbourhood?

See what good you can do with your old items lying around by placing a free ad on Junk Mail as a giveaway! Didn’t think of that now did you?

Whatever you do, make sure your 67 minutes count towards something positive; even if you are only seeking for a self-enriching activity then go for it.

The main idea is not only to do this once a year for 67 minutes, but to make every single day a Mandela day. You don’t need a specific day to do some good for your community. It is an on-going relationship like any other relationship.

Love your community. Embrace ubuntu. Spend time with them this Mandela day, and every other day to come!
