To mark the second annual Nelson Mandela International Day on Monday 18 July, the United Nations is encouraging people around the globe to perform 67 minutes of public service -- one minute for every year of the South African leader's own service to humanity.

The call is part of the "Take Action! Inspire Change" campaign by the Mandela Foundation in recognition of the contributions made by Mr. Mandela, as a human rights lawyer, freedom fighter, prisoner of conscience, international peacemaker, and the first democratically-elected president of a free South Africa.
