Each year since Nelson Mandela's 90th birthday in 2008, 18 July has been marked by global volunteerism and a call to action for people to recognise their individual responsibility to change the world. Mandela's living legacy of service is taken up by individuals, communities and corporates on Mandela Day, with people devoting 67 minutes of their time to community service as a display of commitment to fighting poverty and promoting peace and reconciliation.
