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!
