July 18 is Nelson Mandela’s birthday and the United Nations has confirmed this day as International Nelson Mandela Day in his honour. Out of this initiative and to celebrate his life and the 67 years that he was in public service an idea was born. This idea became the 67 minutes of community service initiative. On this day and during the whole of July people from all walks of life, all over the world stop what they are doing to donate 67 minutes to community service. From cleaning schools and nurseries to visiting sick people in hospital to feeding schemes and public park clean-ups the ideas to participate are endless.
