Give for the sake of giving

Knitting marathons for a variety of woollens to help the needy fend off the harsh winter cold, community drives to help feed hungry tummies and celebrations in aid of a worthy cause.

With details of welfare initiatives to be held on Mandela Day (Wednesday 18 July) already streaming in, it is clear many locals will be sacrificing 67 minutes of their time to do something good this year.

Hopefully others will take a leaf from the book of the late former president, who is being honoured. Madiba taught us to give without asking for anything in return. Now is the time to honour this world-renowned anti-apartheid activist, political icon, philanthropist and Noble Peace prizewinner, who motivated others to inspire change.

Let us pledge 67 minutes of the day, and beyond, to render selfless acts to benefit others and make a difference. No matter how small. Help out at a community soup kitchen. Sort through your cupboards for non-perishables in support of food drives and unwanted clothing to bless those in need, or donate to cash-strapped stallholders to resell at a car boot sale for an extra buck. In a world where nothing is free, “kindness is a gift everyone can afford to give.” We should learn to give for the sake of giving, without self-interest.
