Your Family recently became aware of a fun cause where your enjoyment of knitting, crocheting – or any manner of creating a blanket – can support a drive to produce 67 blankets for Madiba Day. This worldwide effort is also an attempt to make a record count of blankets accumulated for the Guinness World Records!
Mandela Day is a call to action for individuals – for people everywhere – to take responsibility for changing the world into a better place, one small step at a time, just as the late Mr Mandela did for more than 67 years.’
Top ‘Knit-wit’ Carolyn Steyn’s dream is to do an aerial shot of all the blankets made in SA – a sea of blankets! – at the Union Buildings around the feet of Mandela’s statue, in the first week of July before handing them out on his birthday on 18 July.
