JULY 18 IS MANDELA DAY
Nelson Mandela International Day was launched in 2009 on July 18th, Nelson Mandela’s birthday, via unanimous decision of the UN General Assembly. It is more than a celebration of Mandela’s life and legacy; it is a global movement to honor his life’s work and act to change the world for the better.
At The Baby Box Co., we are particularly grateful to Nelson Mandela for his efforts on behalf of children. One of his first actions on becoming President of the newly democratic South Africa in 1994 was to establish the Nelson Mandela Children's Fund. He committed one third of his Presidential salary for five years to ensure the continuation of the Fund as his charitable legacy for children.
We encourage all of you to take a moment on July 18th to give back and share your family’s contribution to helping others on social media with the #Time2Serve and #MandelaDay hashtags. For some great ideas on how to participate from The Stir, click HERE.
The Bed Box is $20 off through Monday.
In addition to donating Baby Boxes via Baby2Baby to NICU this week and serving as a sponsor for the Grand Annual Cord Blood Event, The Baby Box Co. will be acknowledging Mandela Day by offering The Bed Box for $20 OFF with code MANDELADAY at check-out between now and July 20th, making it an even more affordable option for families on a tight budget who need a safe sleep space for their infant.
