67 Blankets for Nelson Mandela Day celebrates its sixth year of knitting the country together by creating Magical Moments 4 Mandela. On March 31, all blankets made this year will be exhibited and laid out from 9am to 1pm simultaneously at various places around the country.
The event will celebrate all the hard work, effort and kindness that “KnitWits for Madiba” around South Africa have put into this worthy cause.
Gatherings will take place in Cape Town at the Chess Road Field in Rondebosch, at the Pringle Bay Town Centre, Port Elizabeth, Pretoria, Bloemfontein and Durban.
In Johannesburg, the blankets will be laid out at Nelson Mandela Square in Sandton, at both the Nelson Mandela statue and the newly unveiled 1m-tall replica of it, which is located close to the original.
