Happy Birthday Tata, Thank you for changing my world for the better. I will hold you in my heart with love and admiration forever
Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela – I am also lost for words when I think of him, yet I am overwhelmed with so much of emotion, gratitude and admiration that it brings me to tears. My heart swells with pride from knowing that I have witnessed the leadership of one of the greatest leaders of this century.
Inspired by Nelson Mandela’s words “It is time for new hands to lift the burdens. It is in your hands now.”, the United Nations officially declared 18 July as Nelson Mandela International Day, based on the idea that everyone can contribute to changing the world for the better.
To celebrate our darling “Madiba” today, I pledged my 67 minutes to gift 67 pairs of shoes for 67 little angels in The Valley Primary Farm School.
