Not only did Maria Ressa conquer the Nobel Peace Prize but also has hit the spot as a Rappler shirt advertising genius. The CEO and co-founder of the successful online news website Rappler, Maria Ressa went to Oslo, Norway after a court’s approval to formally accept the Nobel Peace Prize award with Russian journalist Dmitry Muratov on Dec. 10, 2021.
A Rappler shirt hits the spotlight
During the award ceremony, Ressa, in her most compelling speech, suddenly pulled out a shirt with a message on it: “Believe there is good in the world.”
The shirt now a hit is available in the Official Rappler Shop at merchiful.com.
Believe there is still good in the world. Wear it.
The message wanted to cut across barriers that the world nowadays has been shaping people, institutions, technology, and breakthrough to restlessly push us to sliding doors moment “triggering the worst in us”. Like any viral contamination, the only antidote for this deleterious circumstance and trend is hope and courage to believe there is still good in the world.
Now, the Rappler shirt “Believe there is good in the world” has started to awaken the minds of those who have been in a deep sleep slowly sprouting to face the evil and choose to believe the good in every one of us.
