The Clinton Foundation Celebrates Nelson Mandela Day

Dear friends,
Like so many around the world, we have been inspired by Nelson Mandela. For more than 20 years, we have also been blessed by his friendship, which has given us the chance to witness, in different ways, the power of his commitment to peace, reconciliation, personal kindness, and the possibilities of each new day.
On July 18, we will once again join with people and organizations across the globe in celebrating Mandela Day – a day that inspires us to take action to help change the world for the better. This year, we are honored to join with Graça, her family, and his foundation to help capture the outpouring of support around this day. At their request, the Clinton Foundation will collect donations to help preserve Nelson Mandela’s legacy and further his work. 100% of the proceeds will be directed to the Centre of Memory at the Nelson Mandela Foundation.
We invite you to join us in honoring and supporting a truly great leader and wonderful person so that, as Graça has said, "the principles that define Mandela Day are put to work not just one day a year, but every day."
Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton
