Our charity for Mandela

Shaker Events and Shaker BarSchool South Africa have decided to support the Haven Night Shelter.

We at Shaker have decided to make something simple for all Facebook users to give their contribution to our 67 minutes of giving back tomorrow for Mandela Day

Nelson Mandela gave 67 years of his life fighting for the rights of humanity and since 2008 South Africans have been giving 67 minutes of their time supporting or serving their local community.
The celebration of Mandela Day aims to serve as a global call to action for people to "recognise their individual power to make an imprint and help change the world around them for the better", the Nelson Mandela

The first 67 new likes on Shaker Events Facebook page will mean 67 warm blankets we will deliver to the shelter tomorrow afternoon.

We have set a record target, if we reach 500 new likes on Shaker Events Facebook page we will buy another 200 blankets on top of the 67 blankets

We will be delivering the blankets tomorrow at 15h00, so get those likes in.

Thank you in advance for your support
