An incredible R23,303 has been raised for rhinos!

Wow! I can’t believe what an incredible amount has been raised by you! Thank you so much for all your support. I am sure this will help to make a difference and maybe even raise more awareness to the plight of the rhinos!

The figure so far is $2,773 which is a staggering R23,303!

The final bids on each T-shirt are as follows!

Sassie Black: Daz Johnstone with 100 British pounds

Seb red: Lyn in Canada with C$150

Tara white: Anonymous bidder with $1,000

Marc Grey: Anonymous bidder with $650. (It was originally won by Daz Johnstone with $666, but as he won the other shirt he decided to allow the 2nd highest bidder the opportunity to have this shirt, so as not to be greedy! Thank you Daz!)

Tara Black: Jody Morrison with $125

Seb Grey: Riky ten Berge $160

Marc White: Carolyn Spence with $375

Crew red: Mary Bradley $200.

The auction is still open for this beautiful original painting of black rhino by Dia in Florida. This is open to US residents only due to shipping restrictions. The canvas size is 12 x 16. The bid stands at $325 at the moment!



Richard Millar from South Africa has also donated a photograph of a white rhino which will be printed onto A2 canvas. This has just gone into the auction so there are no bids so far!

The auction on these 2 items is open until 18.00CAT on 28th. The lucky buyers will be announced after the close!


If you would like to bid on either picture please send an e-mail to [email protected] and put in the subject line BID.

Please state which painting you would like to bid on either “Dia” or “Richard” and the amount. Please also state if you wish to remain anonymous and we can place the bid for you.

If you would like to bid through facebook as before, both pictures can be found under T-shirts for rhino day.

Once again thank you so much for your support for the rhinos. I will keep you posted in the comments as to how the bids are doing!

    I am so happy for all the monies received for such a great project. I happened to be on a trip and away from my computer for this time, but hope there will be further auctions for the cause.
