Christmas in July!

Venue: Central South Africa

Mandela Day Drive

“It is in your hands, to make a better world for all who live in it. What counts in life is not the mere fact that we have lived. It is what difference we have made to the lives of others.” – Nelson Mandela

While winter time can be a magical time of year with the promise of snow and comforting fluffy blankets, thick coats, heaters and hot chocolate, it is also a very challenging time for the most vulnerable, who are unsure where their next hot meal or even warm, safe shelter will come from. Now, even more so as the globe grapples with the Covid-19 pandemic.

Help share warmth and love this winter by joining Central Media Group’s Nelson Mandela Day initiative.

From 6 to 17 July 2020, you are invited to bring, pre-loved or new, warm clothing (for adults & children) and blankets, hygiene products, non-perishables and other suitable donations to various drop-off points throughout Central South Africa. These will then be distributed to local charities on Nelson Mandela Day, 18 July 2020.
