Heeding the plea for all South Africans to rally together and dedicate one minute for every year Mandela spent in politics to community work in celebration of Nelson Mandela’s 92nd birthday, a plea endorsed by Old Mutual, a team from communications agency, Draftfcb Johannesburg, headed to the Ekhukhanyeni Crèche on Sunday July 18.

Here Percy Matee, Natalie Noel, Khuthala Gala, Vuyo Otto, Rose Ralinala and Craig Page-Lee spent longer than the 67 minutes asked of them to clean and paint the crèche, and play with the children.

Many other members of the agency gave of their time to community initiatives in other areas. And some even reached out in a manner that showed appreciation – Romaine McKenzie took her son Max to the Douglasdale Police Station to hand out coffee, muffins and a smile.
