67 minutes is all he asks for! Happy birthday Madiba.

July the 18th, now known as Mandela Day is a day that every South African and many others across the world hold close to their hearts. This is the day that former South African president Nelson Rolihlahla “Madiba” Mandela was born. After years of service and sacrifice to “his people”, he finally reaped what he had sowed when apartheid in South Africa was a thing of the past. He sacrificed his own freedom for the freedom of others and in this respect he became a global icon.

Madiba is known as the minute with the “magic” to make things happen, which is why people believe in “Madiba Magic”. The Nelson Mandela Foundation, Mandela Day and the 46664 (his prison number) campaign are just some of the great initiatives he has dedicated his time to. He has called on the world to give to those in need, spread the awareness about HIV/Aids and secure education for all. For he believes that “the future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams” and what better way to start dreaming if not through education.

Today is Mandela Day and as we celebrate this great icon on his 92nd birthday, let us not forget to spare at least 67 minutes of our time to do good and spread the love to those in need (be it community service, donations, praying for the sick or simply lending a shoulder to cry and an ear to listen).

Much can be said about this global icon but sometimes words fail to describe his nature. Madiba is most definitely one of a kind, and as the phrase goes: When Madiba asks, the world answers! (I hope you will answer to his call on Mandela Day).
