Madiba followed three rules throughout his life:
1. Free yourself.
2. Free others.
3. Serve every day.
Today is the first INTERNATIONAL MANDELA DAY!
“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” – Nelson Mandela
Mandela Day is a global call to action for citizens of the world to take up the challenge and follow in the formidable footsteps of Madiba, a man who transformed his life, served his country and freed his people. Its objective is to inspire individuals to take action to help change the world for the better and in so doing, to build a global movement for good.
The question we must ask ourselves is what we are doing to make the world a better place; what are we doing to make every day a Mandela Day?
Mandela Day is dynamic and ever-changing: it belongs to everyone and can take place anywhere, at any time. We urge everyone to find inspiration for their contribution in the legacy of Nelson Mandela and to serve their fellow humans every day.
