Give5 2016

Rhodes students raising money from fellow students for students!


The 2016 give5 week will officially start on the 7th March until the 13th March. Give5 is an Annual Fund fundraising campaign run by students to raise money for fellow students.  The beneficiary for give5 can be for any project that the committee members decide on.  For the last three years the committee has chosen the Pocket Money Fund which helps students who might be on bursaries, but  do not have any extra money to buy essentials at the end of the month.

Committee give5


 The success of give5 relies on the Senior Student and Community Engagement Representative from each Residence, including the Oppidans,  to collaborate and involve the rest of the students in their fundraising drives. Every year we have 100% participation from our Residences and this is why the Campaign is so successful.

The one week campaign is intense and last year Dingemans just beat Botha House and won the Flatscreen TV which was sponsored by Pick n Pay.  Hobson Hall received the give5 Trophy. An overall amount of R75 000 was raised by students last year asking for R5 coins!

Give R5 get a sticker - give R10 and get a pen - give R15 and get a key-ring - give R20 and get a wrist band and anything over R25 you get a sticky notebook set.

give5 Fire Walk

We will be holding the Fire Walk on the 11th March where students and staff walk over 5m of red hot coals to raise further funds for their fellow students.  Please contact if you would like to sign up for the Fire Walk.   The Fire Walk represents a set of techniques where the person consciously switches off the motional component of pain and the ability to communicate with yourself in a way that promotes action in spite of past fears and limiting beliefs.

Please have a look at last years FIRE WALK YOUTUBE and sign up today!
