MPD’s Advocacy remains strong amidst the Pandemic

The Ateneo Mathematics Society (AMS), the organization for math majors and math enthusiasts of the Ateneo de Manila University is not just any math org. As an organization that pushes for math excellence, math appreciation, and math education, it also hosts various events to reach these goals. One of their projects is the MPD, or the Mathventure Pledge Drive, which is now in its second year.

The Mathventure Pledge Drive was previously referred to as the Mathsaya Pledge Drive. Mathsaya was one of the flagship projects of AMS that catered to public junior high school students, a complementary project of Camp Math, which, on the other hand, is an event for private junior high school students. Last 2019, AMS decided to merge the two projects together hence the creation of Mathventure. As the Mathsaya Pledge Drive raised funds for Mathsaya, the Mathventure Pledge Drive also aims to do the same for the participants from public high schools.

This year, the project heads, Joyce Anne Co and Kahlil Gabrielle Garcia, along with the Marketing and Sales Office Heads Sophia Dominique Dizon and Cha Rev Amour Cruz, find their way to still push for the advocacy despite the situation. Like other projects of the org, MPD also adapts to the online setup and opens its doors to not just the Loyola Schools Community, but also to the public. Previously a week-long event, it also transitions to a month-long event, officially starting on the 8th of October 2020 until November 8. The core team plans to perform the pledge drive completely online, with the logistics to be handled by Geordine Aguilar, Halle Bata, Angela Carabeo, and Sofia Verzosa Romero, along with volunteers that will be helping the team. MPD 2020 follows the theme of the timelessly popular Avatar: The Last Airbender, with its main tokens as t-shirts and a tote bag with original designs by the promotions associates Nina Gorospe and Dino Mirasol. Should the pledger decide to give more, the core team also offers add-on tokens such as pins and stickers also following the same theme.

Despite the event starting on October 8, pre-orders have already started last October 6, 2020. Then starting October 9, the core team will be posting various online events on their FB page to gain traction. Moreover, as part of the transparency initiative and primarily for the expression of gratitude, the core team will also be posting weekly acknowledgement posts for the pledgers every Monday starting October 12. Aside from these, they will also be holding a FB Live event on November 7, at 7pm.

More information on the project will be posted on their official Facebook page, AMS Mathventure Pledge Drive (facebook.com/AMSMPD/). They can also be seen on Twitter under the AMS Infinitweet account (twitter.com/AMSinfinitweet) and Instagram under the AMStore account (instagram.com/amstore_admu).
