ネルソン・マンデラ
(25)

Dear Madiba,

I want to wish a Happy Birthday. During this past year, you have enriched my life more than I can say with your kindness and generosity of spirit. It means so much to me that you consider me an honorary granddaughter. From you, I have learned how wonderful it is to give back to society by helping those in need and those whose voice most need to be heard. You are a true inspiration to the world and to me.

Working together on the "Versace for Africa" fashion event to benefit the Nelson Mandela Children's Fund was an amazing experience for me and, I hope, for the children as well. I know that in coming years, we will have even more opportunities to bring energy and love, hope and commitment to meaningful new projects working towards a more free and compassionate world.

Madiba - your vision and humanity inspire me every day I aspire to follow your example in action large and gestures small. Again, many wishes for a wonderful birthday, a bright upcoming year and many, many more.

With love,

Naomi
