Cape Town - To mark the 100th anniversary of Nelson Mandela's birth, forgood.co.za, SA’s largest volunteering platform has compiled a list of 100 different volunteering opportunities from across the country, for individuals or groups to get involved in, either on or offline.
This year’s theme, Be The Legacy, is encouraging everyone to take #ActionAgainstPoverty by devoting 67 minutes of their time to public service on Mandela’s birthday.
Help a worthy cause by doing some admin work or shoot a video to showcase the amazing work they do. There are also loads of things you can do online – help manage their Facebook page, do some translation, design a brochure or write fundraising proposals– it’s that easy!
“Through technology, we’re making volunteering even more accessible for people to get involved in Mandela Day. The internet means that individuals can do their bit from just about anywhere - even if you’re glued to your desk at the office,” says Andy Hadfield, CEO of forgood.
