MADIBA DAY | 67 minutes of Kindness

"Sometimes it falls upon a generation to be great. You can be that generation." Nelson Mandela

The 18th of July is a tribute to a great man... and more so to what he accomplished.

We couldn't think of a better way to celebrate his life's work , other than spreading the cheer.

Our #1 Initiative | Wednesday 18 July 2018 @ 13:00 | Oudtshoorn CBD:

This happened in town, with the help of our  Wild Animal Volunteers! Staff of the Cango Wildlife Ranch gathered gifts, toys, food, blankets and books which were all handed out to unsuspecting public in mid-town.

Just giving wasn't deemed enough, so to add to the celebration we had them all draw "Random acts of Kindness" from a jar which they had to action. 

These included anything from a hug, to complimenting someone at random. 

On one side we had the privilege to spread the gift of kindness... but one the other, we all realised that it was so much more rewarding to be the giver.

Initiative #2: Change starts at home | Wednesday 18 July 2018 @ 13:00 - 14:07 | Cango Wildlife Ranch

Staff were asked to draw from their own Box of "Random Acts of Kindness" and boy, did it create a buzz of celebration.  Over 90 staff members participated and from 13:00 - 14:07 we witnessed one person giving 67 hugs, another hugging trees and compliments were making their way to one another at an exciting rate. 

Watch a fun video on how our staff took the cheer all the way:
