Madiba’s Birthday – 67 minutes of Goodwill – 18 July 2012
This is my first ever Blog entry! I’m so excited to start writing about what we are up to here at Earthstompers Adventures. I could not find a more suitable subject for my first Blog Entry than Madiba’s 94th birthday and what the Earthstompers Tour Group got up to on this day.
On 18 July 2012 The Earthstompers Tour Group did their 67 Minutes of Goodwill for the birthday of Nelson Mandela or better known by the South Africans as Madiba. (Nelson Mandela Day)
Why 67 Minutes and What is Mandela Day?
The Tour Group: Chrissy and Charlie Wolfersberger from the US (Father and Daughter combination), Hillie Aldering and Marco Van Bommel from Holland and Ozum Saygi from Cyprus and Tour Guide/owner/manager of Earthstompers joined forces with the guys from Afrovibe Lodge Myoli Beach in Sedgefield under the leadership of owner/manager Lyle Katzen and we painted 7 doors that was in a Pretty bad state at Masindane Aids Relief Centre in Sedgefield. Lyle Katzen offered our service to the management at Masindane, they were really relieved and excited about our idea.
It was Day 3 of our 6 Day Garden Route and Addo Adventure and it was a lovely sunny day, but the guests on the Earthstompers Tour still opted to do their 67 minutes of Goodwill for the Birthday of Nelson Mandela instead of spending the afternoon strolling the markets and Waterfront of Knysna. Paint, Rollers and Brushes were sponsored by myself ( Earthstompers Adventures ) and Lyle Katzen from Afrovibe Lodge Myoli Beach in Sedgefield – (https://www.afrovibe.co.za/). The guests had a great time doing their 67 minutes of Goodwill and they all promised to keep on doing their 67 minutes of goodwill wherever they might find themselves on 18 July every single year.
