The Lockdown Collection was developed to run during the initial 21 days of the lockdown, to capture the unprecedented times through the eyes of prominent South African artists as a live-online auction. These 21 art pieces by renowned local artists were sold to raise money to support South African artists. Each piece was revealed daily and reflected the thoughts, feelings and vision of artists’ COVID-19 experience. The overwhelming support and demand has led to more collections, such as the Student Collection, a Canadian Green Recovery Collection and also an Open Call Collection launched in 2021.

As the wave of business closures fell during the hard lockdown and funding uncertainty grew, the Rainbow Academy embarked on a fundraising campaign from March–November 2020 to sustain their organisation by building an easily accessible online teaching and learning platform. Learners in the academy come from disadvantaged backgrounds in the Western Cape, with no access to the internet or data services, smartphones or tablet devices; hence this campaign to raise funds for these essential resources to ensure continued learning amidst the constraints and challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic. The fundraising campaign included a successful online Christmas and New Year's show, written and performed by the learners from the academy.

Womandlachallenge was born from challenges exacerbated by lockdown, like food security, health matters and gender based violence in homes. In partnership with GBV dedicated NPOs to raise awareness and funding for GBV and Child Abuse representative organisations, Womandlachallenge was launched on South Africa’s National Women’s Day. The project included a run, a performance, and the launch of a street mural. The mural was designed and created by a group of social creatives mentored by Kathy Berman, the founder of the Museum Store Africa, during a one-year accelerator on a street in Maboneng. Inspired by the BLACK LIVES MATTER street painting, the mural spelt out a colourful WOMANDLA.
