67 minutes for Mandela Day

Morgan Freeman hosted event

Morgan Freeman spent Monday — Nelson Mandela’s 93rd birthday — as host and speaker of a media-heavy lunch at Manhattan’s Four Seasons Restaurant.

The thesp talked about Mandela Day, a global initiative of volunteerism. “Last year we went to South Africa to promote Mandela Day for his 92nd birthday,” Freeman said, “and we rode motorcycles from Jo’burg to Cape Town, stopping all along the way to do 67 minutes,” which represented the South African leader’s 67 years of public service.

Barbara Walters added, “I talked about it on ‘The View’ and told people they should do an act of kindness of 67 minutes or less.”

Billie Jean King, busy with World Team Tennis, stopped by on her way to Philly. “I’ll be helping kids today,” she said. “We give away more than 250,000 small little baby rackets to kids to try to get them to do exercise because obesity is so rampant in this country.”
