Personal messageIn 2020, the essence of Mandela Day – take action, inspire change, and make every day a Mandela Day – is more important than ever before.
Lockdown has affected the global community in ways that we never thought imaginable. In South Africa, this has meant that over 3 million people have lost their jobs, and millions are dying from hunger.
For Mandela Day 2020, I am calling on friends and family around the globe to help me raise money for The Angel Network, a charity very close to my heart. The Angel Network is run solely by the power of social media, where they enable, facilitate and mobilise acts of kindness. The Angel Network has been helping provide food and basic essential items to destitute families who are stricken by the lockdown in SA and who have lost jobs or who are starving and freezing in one of the coldest winters in recent memory.
I am not asking for a lot, as I know there are so many who are struggling themselves. If you are able to help with a donation of any amount I know that it will be appreciated more than you can imagine. If you aren't able to donate money, The Angel Network is also accepting donations of clothes or dry food to make Meals in a Jar.
We are all in this together.
“ As we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.”
― Nelson Mandela
