South Africans will be doing their part for Nelson Mandela International Day (Mandela Day) on 18 July and contributing 67 minutes of their time to community service in a bid to give back to society.
City Sightseeing, the company that runs the iconic red double decker buses in Cape Town and Johannesburg, will be doing its bit through an innovative giveaway that allows others to pay it forward in true “Madiba style”.
The concept behind this giveaway is that people can nominate someone they feel is deserving of an amazing day out. Nominations are open for that special friend who needs a break, the family down the road who have not been on holiday in years or even the granny in the local home that would love a trip around the city with her friends. All nominations will be collected via social media and the lucky recipients will be drawn on Mandela Day. There are 67 sets of one-day double tickets up for grabs.
Enter the competition on Facebook and fill in the entry by emailing through the name of the person you nominate and why you feel they should win. Each winning nomination will receive one set of double tickets to explore Johannesburg or Cape Town on the red double-decker hop on-hop off bus tours. Nominations close at 18h00 on 18 July 2018 (Mandela Day) and winners will be announced on 31 July 2018. This is a fantastic way to give back to someone who you feel needs a well-deserved break – a day out from everything to have fun and make memories with their family.
