September marks Heritage Month – 30 days dedicated to celebrating our country’s cultures, history, language and food.
As a rainbow nation - filled with all manners of races, creeds, religions and beliefs - we can all agree that it’s important to be proud of who we are. With six different colours, M&M’s is essentially a rainbow nation in a bag.

Celebrate Heritage Month by stepping out of your comfort zone. If you need an icebreaker, why not share a bag of M&M’s? As the saying goes, ‘The beauty of the world lies in the diversity of its people’ – so get sharing!
This Heritage Month, M&M’s is encouraging us to get to know another person’s beliefs and interests. So, why not:
o Learn a new word or phrase from one of our twelve official languages (with my shockingly lazy tongue, I'd love to learn Tshivenda)
o Eat something you have never tried before, like anything considered traditional African cuisine (as a food lover, trust me, I excel in this depart)
o Listen to a different music genre (I should start at Mroza Fakude's Van Damme)
o Visit a heritage site such as the Apartheid Museum or Robben Island (I'm ashamed to say I've never been to the Hector Peterson Museum even though I'm a Sowetan - shocking really!)
o Listen to other people’s stories and get to know someone who is different from you (I love people, so this one should not be too hard - YAY!)
