“A fundamental concern for others in our individual and community lives would go a long way in making the world the better place we so passionately dreamt of.” ― Nelson Mandela 

Celebrated every year on his birthday, Nelson Mandela International Day “celebrates the idea that each individual has the power to transform the world and the ability to make an impact.” In honor of Mandela’s 67 years of philanthropy, the UN invites everyone to spend 67 minutes of their time this Saturday, July 18th, volunteering and making “a small gesture in solidarity with humanity – one minute for every year of the South African leader’s public service.”  To make finding local (and global) volunteering opportunities easier, this week we share community service organizations as well as information on Nelson Mandela, his foundation, and Nelson Mandela International Day.  We’re inviting our team to have a paid 67 minutes to volunteer this week with the service organization of their choice.
