What to do for Mandela Day (Part 3)

Written by: diannem

Mandela Day is tomorrow! If you haven't signed up to a cause already, here are a few more ideas!

1. Assist the San Salvador Home for Intellectually Disabled Women

2. Help up and coming Alex Masina get to Europe for the World Champs

Alex Masina has gone from strength to strength in his training at the Johannesburg Canoe Club (JCC). He recently won all his races at the SA Champs (bar one), and was subsequently selected to represent South Africa at World Champs later this month. Unfortunately, he lacks the funding - and is searching for sponsors! If you want to donate to a young man's career for your 67 minutes - here's an opportunity! For more information call Criag Mustard on 079 433 1768

3. Help CLAW (Community Lead Animal Welfare) with their top 5 wishes!
