The challenge was to mobilise the public to speak up against the crime in South Africa. The aim was to raise money and awareness. The money will be donated to charities that help prevent crime and assist victims of crime. There were over 13,500 downloads of the song in one day, 14,324 unique vistors to the website in the first 3 days, 50,000 Facebook supporters within 2 weeks, 1 million Rand raised in under a week to be used in the fight against crime and a renewed sense of hope given to a nation in distress.

To build a safer South Africa for all South Africans and raise awareness about crime rates and to raise money for the fight against crime.
