Chas Everitt warms up people in need on Mandela Day - 18 July 2012

Following the success of Nelson Mandela’s 90th birthday celebrations in 2008, it was decided that there could be nothing more fitting than to celebrate Mr Mandela’s birthday each year with a day dedicated to his life’s work and to ensure his legacy continues forever.

The Mandela Day message is simple: Mr Mandela gave 67 years of his life fighting for the rights of humanity. On this day people and or companies gives 67 minutes of their time, whether you support your chosen charity or serving your local community.

Mandela Day is a call to action for individuals – for people everywhere – to take responsibility for changing the world into a better place, one small step at a time, just as Mr Mandela did.

To mark Mandela Day, Chas Everitt International property group will be giving away 1000 warm winter blankets to various organisations around the country that care for needy people.
 “And this is just the start,” says group MD Bery Everitt. “We feel very strongly about the underlying message of the ’67 Minutes’ campaign, which is that every individual should do their part to change the world into a better place and not leave it up to someone else.

“Consequently we have asked all our offices and agents to commit further to this campaign and do something positive themselves for their communities, if not actually on Mandela Day, at least in the month of July.”
Some of the organisations that will benefit from the blanket donation will be the Port Elizabeth Association for the Aged, Marang House in Northcliff which cares for seriously ill children, the Moreglans old age home in Krugersdorp, the Ann Harding Chesire Home in Randburg, the Christway Children’s Home in Turffontein and the Coronation Park camp near Roodepoort.  
“The response to our initiative has been excellent,” says Everitt, “and we are not only grateful but extremely proud that the empathy and generosity that are so much a part of the Chas Everitt ethos are being spread in this way to the less fortunate members of the communities we serve.”
