Nelson Mandela Day 18th July 2017: Celebrating the Life & Legacy of Nelson Mandela
By: Roxane Morgan   (2017-07-19)

Mandela Day is a day for us all to join forces and do our bit to celebrate the life and legacy of Nelson Mandela. Mandela devoted 67 years of his life to helping others, and today many businesses, organisations and individuals took time off their busy schedules to spare 67 minutes of their time to help a worthy cause.

"To deny people their human rights is to challenge their very humanity."
~ Nelson Mandela

In honour of this annual event, we at InfoBluePrint decided to give back to the less fortunate within Cape Town. There has been an increase in the number of individuals living on the streets of Cape Town, who are unable to get the basic necessities to survive. We identified an organisation called "U-Turn" which is doing great work assisting homeless people to become whole again and helping them to lead a normal life within society, hence inspiring change.

In celebration of Nelson Mandela's legacy, we have donated towards this cause to do our bit to help the needy in our city.

We wish all the staff and volunteers at U-Turn all the best as they dedicate their time and efforts to inspire change amongst the less fortunate.
