Mandela Day originated after Nelson Mandela's 90th birthday celebrations in London's Hyde Park in 2008 where he said "it is time for new hands to lift the burdens.  It is in your hands now". Nelson Mandela gave 67 years of his life fighting for social justice and human rights, which he did with great personal sacrifice.  The United Nations declared 18 July as Nelson Mandela International Day in November 2009.
