Wearing your heart on your sleeve

Posted Thursday March 07, 2019 by College Giving

It’s often said: “it’s not what you know; it’s who you know”. This was never more true than with the development and launch of our #GiveHope campaign.

A chance meeting with a College Old Boy involved with the Relate Bracelets initiative ended with us having access to this inspiring “do good” company to help design and supply our own College themed Relate bracelets! Not many schools can compete with that!

Our first order of #GiveHope bracelets was delivered a year and a half ago and to date we have sold over 1300 of these Red,Black&White bracelets.

These eye-catching bands of wrist candy are now noticeable everywhere and are worn with pride by many within our College community.

The #GiveHope name was given to this campaign as all the profits generated from the sale of these bracelets are allocated to urgent and immediate needs that many of our College boys may have. The support offered is to give hope to boys and families who have reached that point in their personal struggle or challenge where it seems impossible to move forward.

The #GiveHope bracelets are offered for sale at the College Shoppe and through the Foundation Office at the school.

For a mere R50 you not only become part of the #GiveHope troupe but you also make a commitment to those less fortunate than yourself.
