EVENT DATE: Jul 18, 2014
CHEESEKIDS FOR HUMANITY is a volunteer activation non-profit agency started in 2007 by a group of 8 social friends. Cheesekids seeks to activate young South Africans & turn them on to community service through different designed programs and events. It makes volunteering fun, accessible and easy to get involved. Many young people are interested in & concerned by social issues but don’t know how to get get up, get in and get involved.
The Cheesekids overall Project Objective is to Graduate young citizens through a hierarchy of social action that asks for the volunteer to contribute their most precious asset, their time!
In November 2009 the United Nationals declared that the 18th of July will officially be known as Nelson Mandela International Day.
in 2009 Cheesekids became an affiliate partner to the Nelson Mandela Centre of Memory and adopted the campaign of "Make Everyday A Mandela Day". Since 2009 Cheesekidshas hosted the biggest annual Mandela Day in South Africa, to date having offered an opportunity to over 100,000 volunteers to partake in doing good the fun way.
In 2014 Cheesekids looks to host the biggest one day Mandela Day volunteer event the world has ever seen by putting together events around the country that will host up to 67,000 volunteers. The 67,000 is a representation of the 67 years Madiba spent in fighting for social justice for the people of South Africa and the rest of the world.
Cheesekids would like to thank you in advance for assisting in ensuring that we as the world continue living Tata Madiba's legacy and values, through volunteerism and community service.
Let us all join in and continue to "MAKE EVERYDAY A MANDELA DAY"
