Every Day a Mandela Day

Today is the Nelson Mandela International Day, which the United Nations honored by holding an Informal Meeting of the United Nations General Assembly. The gathering was both a celebration of Mandela’s 94th Birthday and a commemoration of his long-time commitment to serving humanity. In observation of this day, individuals are urged to spend 67 minutes (1 minute for each year of his service) helping others, through various forms of community service. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon’s message, in light of Mandela’s great work, is for us to better serve the world: “take action, inspire change, make every day a ‘Mandela Day’ ”.
