Mandela Day is an international initiative spreading the message about giving. We are forever caught up in our own social lives and forever focused on what we can get out of life. Let us on this day 18 July, focus our attention elsewhere and start givinging! u’Tata (Xhosa for dad) Madiba gave 67 years of his life fighting and addressing human rights. Nelson Mandela Day is not only a day to celebrate Nelson Mandela’s life but also to encourage people globally to answer the “call” recognising their ability to have a positive effect on the people around them.

PEN is proud to be part of Nelson Mandela Day and encourages you, your family and friends to take part and find 67 ways to make a difference! For further information and PEN’s contribution to Mandela Day contact Anita at 012 323 6688 or
