Ubuntu | What are you doing for Mandela Day 2021?
It’s that time of the year. Mandela Day (18 July 2021) is around the corner. Unfortunately, this day of giving falls right in the middle of a global pandemic that affects many aspects of our lives and limits our volunteering opportunities.
So what to do? Mandela Day has always been a time of giving, generosity and going the extra mile. But volunteering has been minimised, due to restrictions to curb the spread of the pandemic.
We can help. Brownie Points is launching a Mandela Day campaign to help support nonprofits and communities, as well as provide companies, schools and everyone else with several options to make a difference. The campaign will focus on virtual volunteering, fundraising and in-kind donations to adhere to Covid-19 restrictions.
Do you know of a Mandela Day initiative?
If you know a nonprofit organisation that is planning something for Mandela Day this year, please let us know ([email protected]). Or you can sign up to Brownie Points, invite the nonprofit and create a cause on their behalf and become a Brownie Points champion!
Champions are digital volunteers who invite their favourite nonprofit organisations to Brownie Points, create causes on their behalf and then share them on social media and beyond. Soon, these champions can get endorsed by nonprofit organisations to unlock extra benefits.
If you work for a nonprofit and want to create a Mandela Day cause, become a Brownie Points nonprofit partner.
Engage your team
Last year, Brownie Points ran several campaigns for Mandela Day. Korbicom launched a virtual campaign and engaged 84 employees who worked remotely. HomeChoice shared the joy of giving back by tracking 20 good deeds.
If you are part of a company and would like to engage your team to participate in Mandela Day 2021, join Brownie Points, invite your team members and track all giving activity. You can request a branded, live report that can be shared and downloaded, including a team comparison section.
You can also create your very own curated Mandela Day campaign or get in touch with us to help design the campaign and find beneficiary partners matched to your team’s interests.
If you are part of a school or university and want to engage your students, you can join Brownie Points here.
Mandela Day Challenge
Why not get a team together and show the world some love by signing up for a cause on Brownie Points with your friends? Alternatively, assemble a team at your school or in your company and challenge other pupils or coworkers to see who can do the most good deeds. You can track your progress with Brownie Points and even use the teams function to get a custom team comparison report.
