Did you know that Wednesday is Nelson Mandela Day? You can learn more about the worldwide event at nelsonmandeladay.org, but I will provide a nutshell version.
July 18 is the South African leader’s birthday. An organization created in his name started an annual event on his birthday.
It is believed that since he dedicated 67 years of service to his community, his country and the world, individuals should try to donate six to seven hours, to make a difference.
Hopefully you know by now that the local assets motto is, “Take a Second, Make a Difference,” and this week, I’d like to know how you do it.
Los Alamos Retired and Seniors Organization, Retired Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP), Irene Powell and I have all agreed that if Wednesday doesn’t work for you, pick a different day. If you can’t do it all at once, split it up.
If you aren’t sure what or where to do it, just ask us. Irene suggests picking up some trash at a park or offering to mow an older neighbor’s yard. You can call Sombrillo or Aspen Ridge and see if they could use a hand with a project.
