Committed to fully digitizing Deaf Education in the region, NMS Cares launched a crowdfunding campaign through one of the world’s largest open-funding platform IndieGoGo.
The campaign that calls for help in improving the learning experience of less privileged Deaf learners was rooted from the organization’s Share-an-iPad campaign that was initially launched in March. The project aim to collect second-hand tablets that will be installed with educational applications that will help the students in their Math and English subjects. As of press time, NMSC has already received six iPad units, three of which are actually brand new, donated by Martin Eyking, CEO of New Media Services and his family.
Through crowdfunding, NMSC hopes to receive online donations to be used for the purchase of more tablets and hit its short term goal of having a one tablet per pupil ratio for the organization’s pilot subject grade level pupils (Ages 3 to 7 years old) from SPED Center Baguio.
Long term, NMSC’s goal is to provide one tablet for each Deaf student beneficiary in all grade levels.
A sampling of the perks available for donors on IndieGoGo includes:
$10 donation – Virtual Hugs and Kisses from the kids at the SPED Center Hearing Impaired Sequence.
$25 donation – Special online shout-outs on all of NMSC’s social media accounts.
$50 donation – A photo of the Deaf students holding a personalized thank you poster with your name on it.
$150 donation – One of the Deaf kids will sign your name as part of a special thank you video.
$500 donation – You become an Honorary Member of NMS Cares.
