This UP Org's Initiative Aims to Help Students Get Resources for Online Classes
Rise for Education Alliance - UP Diliman is holding a donation drive for providing assistance to students of UP Diliman that need help in transitioning to an online class and remote learning setup. The donation drive is called Tulong Isko and is launched in coordination with UP Diliman University Student Council.
The first wave of donation was held from July to September. Through this, they were able to gather P57,198.80 in monetary donations, four laptops, one iPad, and one iPhone. They were also able to raise a total of P31,224.04 from all their Sunflower Shirts, Iskovention, and Art and Poetry Commissions.
The second wave started on October 12 and is set to run until December 6. It's composed of four initiatives: Among Us Tournament, Isko Line Merch, Iskonvention, and (A)kala ko ba (W)alang (I)wanan (T)ayo: An Online Benefit Gig.
Among Us Tournament
The Among Us Tournament is an electronic game tournament. The elimination and semi-final rounds were held from November 5 to 7. Due to unexpected circumstances, however, the final round was postponed indefinitely.
Isko Line Merch
The Isko Line Merch is designed by their team especially for the fundraising initiative. Products include SALAMAT UP Shirts, Sunflower Shirts, Tatak UP tote bags, and Isko Icons (waterproof vinyl stickers). This initiative was launched last October 17 and pre-orders are accepted until November 22.
Tulong Isko partnered with student-run businesses for Iskonvention. In exchange for free promotion and publicity of their business in all of Tulong Isko's initiatives and platforms, 20 percent of these businesses' sales will be donated to Tulong Isko. This initiative will run until December 5.
(A)kala ko ba (W)alang (I)wanan (T)ayo: An Online Benefit Gig
