Media Release: KNP to honour Mandela through music & service

Date: 2011-07-11

As an organization, the Park will donate food and clothes worth R10 000 to the homeless children at Field of Dreams, a home outside Malelane; some of the staff members will spend time with the kids as well on Mandela Day.

People around the world can devote at least 67 minutes to a good cause; one minute for each year Mandela devoted to worthy causes since he began his struggle against human rights infringements as a young attorney in the apartheid era.

The KNP’s Head of Public Relations, William Mabasa says “ As a tribute to our beloved Madiba, let us sacrifice one minute of our time for every year Mandela devoted to social justice by getting involved in issues such as gender equality, education, poverty, peace and reconciliation to mark the day. Something as simple as baking a cake or emptying the fridge and giving food to the homeless, can make a difference in somebody’s life”.

KSB, who will be on a concert tour to South Africa and, will also be celebrating their 10th anniversary decided to travel to the country during the hero’s birthday month. Each day of the tour, the boys will perform 67 minutes of community and musical service in various parts of the country in honour of Mandela. Having toured South Africa it its first season, KSB will return to the country with the distinction of being the only choir to have sung on all seven continents, including Antarctica.
