Change was the gift given to all South Africans by Nelson Mandela. Now it's YOUR turn. In the spirit of Madiba and his vision to spread justice and freedom for all, this is your chance to step up to the plate and become a part of a continuous global movement for good. By becoming a Mandela Day Changemaker you can show that actions speak louder than words by giving a little of your time to make a change that's close to your heart. (or by giving a little of your time to make a difference to the life of someone less fortunate.)
SHARE YOUR MANDELA DAY DEED

SPREAD THE WORD
Mandela Day is a celebration of our collective power to do good and make an imprint on the world. You can add to the initiative’s momentum by telling as many people as possible about it. Use your own network of friends, media connections, corporates and organisations to get involved and make a difference.
Stellenbosch University would once again like to present an opportunity to staff, in the spirit of Madiba and his vision to spread justice and freedom for all, to give a little of your time to make a change in an area that is close to your heart or by giving a little of your time to make a difference to the life of someone less fortunate.
Mandela Day is celebrated on 18th July 2013 and staff members are encouraged to give of their time during 12h00 – 14h00 on this day. This could be a wonderful team-building opportunity for SU Departments and Divisions.
So what are YOU doing on 18 July or any other day in lieu of Mandela Day? Here are some ideas to get you started:
If you are already involved in volunteerism, plan to render your service to your charity/organisation/project of choice between 12h00 – 14h00.
