Mandela Day was instituted after a speech Mandela gave in 2009. His message was that South Africa is in our hands now, and he was right. The future is in our hands.

On Mandela Day we pay homage to the life of our great leader by paying homage to fellow South Africans, and what better way to celebrate his legacy and our country?

You don’t have to be rich to make a difference in the lives of those around you this year.

Via Groupon, you can pay R49 to donate a stationary set to Afrika Tikkun, a non-profit organisation that implements a ‘Cradle to Career’ model. They support children from infancy to adulthood to become more educated and prepare them for employment in South Africa.

The Mandela Day Gift Box includes:

• Pencils
