FiveAlive Fundraising Challenge

The FiveAlive Fundraising Challenge is inspired by you, our supporters in the community.

After receiving inquiries expressing how one can assist Irene Homes to meet their financial demands during the lockdown period, we came up with FiveAlive.

What is the Five Alive Fundraising Challenge?

The most fun and simplest way to support vulnerable members in your community.

Who is it for?

FiveAlive focuses on drawing the community together, to aid Irene Homes to continue caring, supporting, and empowering individuals that are intellectually disabled, by providing services in the Five pivotal areas of need. For just R100 each person can make a difference in the life of 1 woman.

How does it work?

This exciting online fundraising challenge is easy. It starts with you; donate R100 towards one of our focus areas and challenge your friends, via Facebook and or Twitter, with the #FiveAliveChallenge, to do the same. Whenever your friends donate they tag you and challenge 4 or more other friends. Five donors can complete the FiveAlive Challenge, which is a donation to the five focus areas of Irene Homes and thus keeping not only the challenge going (alive) but also the work done at Irene Homes.

The Goal

The effects of Covid-19 have been exponentially detrimental to Irene Homes. With a total loss of approximately R800 000 from the Charity Shop, events, and donors, we are at risk of not being able to provide the basic services to our residents; 88 women varying in intellectual disability, most of which are adult orphans, and depend solely on the homes to fulfill their needs.

Our Goal is to make R500 000, the projected amount we would have made at Feté and the Charity Shop.  By being 1 of 5000 people donating R100 we can achieve this feat. The money raised will be divided towards our five focus areas.
