Each year on Mandela Day, marked on the 18th July in honour of Nelson Mandela's birthday, we are all encouraged to spend 67 minutes doing something to help someone else. One of this year's themes was education and literacy. Sure Travel Head Office staff decided to support this theme and spent their Saturday sorting out their books and on Monday, we headed to our nearest CNA store to donate them.
The Nelson Mandela Foundation Library Project had partnered with CNA this Mandela Day - donation boxes were placed in CNA stores and CNA had set a target of 6000 books that they wanted to donate. The Nelson Mandela Foundation Library Project will then collect the books and set up much-needed container libraries in selected schools.
You can still pop into your nearest CNA store to donate your books. Together let’s give one of the most precious gifts of all – the gift of reading.
