If your offices are situated in and around Durban, here are some team-building activities you and your colleagues can partake in to make a difference on Mandela Day:
1. Educate a child on Mandela Day
If your team, like the Mtubatuba community in Richards Bay believes in upholding Nelson Mandela’s ideal of “education as the most powerful tool,” join them in donating educational mathematical instruments and scientific calculators to the Ikusasaletu High School in Mtubatuba.

2. Mandela Day Blood Drive
BE A HERO… IT’S IN YOUR BLOOD!
The South African National Blood Service has set a target of 200 pints of blood for 67 donors for the Sunflower fund. If your team would like to be the next heroes, why not visit Kensington Square in Durban North on 18 July 2014 to donate your blood?

3. 67 pictures for Mandela Day
The public is invited to pose for a picture which will be taken behind a Mandela wallpaper for R20. All participants will be given a piece of paper to jot a message that will be put inside a pair of shoes that will be donated to 20 of the most needy school children in the area of Umlazi in the South of Durban. Businesses as well as the public in and around the city of Durban are warmly invited to join.
