9 Things to do this Madiba Month

 
 

1 – Spend time with the elderly

There are many South Africans of the older generation have incredible stories to tell and really just want someone to spend some time with them. Read to them, make some tea, play a game of crazy eight or just enjoy their company cause they will definitely enjoy yours.

 

2 – Clean up the beaches/parks

Get your friends together and take a trip to your local beach and see how you can help keep the beaches and oceans clean. Or if you are too far from the beach go to your local park and help keep the playground safe and clean for you and your friends.

 

3 – Spend some time with the kiddos

Go volunteer at a local school or orphanage and organise a sporting event or talent show to get the kids involved and watch the smiles spread across their faces just becasuse you are there and spending time with them.

 

4 – Get your hands dirty

Organise with your friends to find a local cause in your community and help support it by helping planting a garden, building or painting something in your community even if its just a mural to brighten up your area.

 

 

5 – Clean up your community

You would be totally amazed at what a difference you and your friends could make by spending just 67 minutes walking around your neighbourhood and picking up litter. Don’t believe me? Try it for yourself and find out!

 

6 – Donate something

Don’t take what you have for granted, if there is something you don’t wear, play with or use anymore, why not donate it? There are many people in South Africa and beyond that could use that old shirt or toy you’ve outgrown and would definitely appreciate it.

 

7 – Buy a book and donate it

Take a trip to a second hand or charity book store and pick out something fun. Give it a quick read and then donate it to a children’s shelter or an underprivileged school nearby and help spread literacy across Africa.

 

8 – Volunteer at an animal shelter

Spend your 67 minutes at a TEARS or SPCA shelter and offer a helping hand to a furry friend by playing with them, taking them for walks, buy and donate some animal food or if you’re feeling really generous consider adopting one of your own.

 

9 – Knit something warm

If you don’t know how to knit, now is a great time to learn! Get your family and friends involved in projects the 67 Blankets for Mandela Day and help keep SA warm in those cold winter months with a lovingly homemade scarf or blanket for someone who needs it.
