It was an initiative started by the 46664 concerts and the Nelson Mandela Foundation whereby they invited the global community to take part and officialise an international Mandela day.
The first Mandela day took place on the 18th of July 2009, on Tata’s 91st birthday.
It has since been a global call to action that celebrates the idea that each individual has the power to to transform the world, and the ability to make an impact.
Mandela day is meant to honor the legacy of Nelson Mandela and his values through volunteering and community service.
To mark the first global celebration of Mandela Day on 18 July 2009, Mandela’s 91st birthday, a series of educational, art exhibit, fund-raising and volunteer events leading up to a concert at Radio City Music Hall, New York were organized by the 46664 concerts and the Nelson Mandela Foundation.
