“Nelson Mandela turns 91 on 18 July, and the call has gone out for people everywhere to celebrate his birthday – and the global launch of Mandela Day – by acting on the idea that each person has the power to change the world.” (http://www.southafrica.info)
The HavServe Team for Haiti is answering this call to action by launching their own “Inspire Change & Promote Access to Primary Education for ALL Children by 2015” campaign. We are inviting all volunteers, existing and potential, to give at least 67 minutes of their time, symbolized by Mandela’s 67 years of service, to the cause of educating children in Haiti. A great place to start is a click on this link to HavServe’s Kits for Kids page http://shop.kitsforkidz.org/catalog/havserv,245.htm and place a donation for the School Supplies Drive. I just did that on Jean Baptiste KATTIE’s own fundraising page, http://www.firstgiving.com/fundraiser/jean-baptistekattie/give-a-child-a-backpack-with-school-supplies and it was easy to do. There is a link there to post the information on your facebook page to share with friends and family members. The drive will be going on for one month (July 18th- August 18th) and Jean’s goal is to raise $1000.
Be Part of Something Special – Only 1 Month To Go To Take Action and Inspire Change! Happy Birthday Nelson Mandela!
