Save a rhino – bid for a hand painted t-shirt! Fri, 23 Sep 2011 08:59:36 +0000

Hi everyone,

Sebastien is working hard on trying to finish the video of the live drive crew, that is Sebastien, Marc and myself, painting 8 t-shirts, which are being auctioned off to raise money to help save rhinos. Once the video is done, it along with the fireside chat we had on rhino day, Sept 22, will be loaded onto YouTube, Facebook and on the Safari channel on between drives.

Where does the money go? 

The crew are paying for the t-shirts, so ALL the money raised will go to a charity that is trying to stop rhinos being killed for their horns. If you are one of the 8 who win a t-shirt, you can put forward your rhino charity of choice. The crew will then pick which one of the 8 suggestions to send the money to.


The auction is open now and will end on Sunday 25th at 18h00 CAT. The lucky 8 buyers will then be announced on the Sunday PM drive after the closing of the bids.

You can either bid on facebook OR via e-mail.

Facebook: Look for the T-shirts for rhino day album on the public pages for the crew, or on Djuma Private Game Reserve page. Place your bid under the t-shirt you would like to bid on.

E-mail: If you would like to remain anonymous or don’t have or want access to facebook, please e-mail bids to and we will place a bid on your behalf. Please put in the subject line of your e-mail “BID”. Your e-mail needs to include the name of the t-shirt you are bidding for and your amount. Please also state which name we should add with the bid or if you wish to remain anonymous.


The lodge will contact the 8 buyers on how they would like to pay for the t-shirt either bank transfer or credit card.

The t-shirts :

Name : Sassie BLACK     Size: Large    Who : Seb, Marc, Tara and Sassie the puppy!

(Please note spray paint was used by the left sleeve, but with a little help it was salvaged and even Sassie added her paw print to it!)

 Name: Seb RED    Size: Large     Who : Seb

Note: The only t-shirt with something on the front and back. The picture on the left is the front, on the right is the back.
