Amid ban on christmas caroling, rappler turns to online donations for maria ressa’s legl defense fund

MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Rappler CEO Maria Ressa is leaving no stone unturned in her efforts to raise money for her legal defense fund for the appeal for her Cyber Libel conviction and other criminal charges filed against her.

Her very supportive staff had planned to go a-caroling this Christmas season, but the plan all but fizzled out after the government banned caroling this year in an effort to curb the spread of the coronavirus.

Instead, Rappler has turned to Internet crowdfunding to raise money for Ressa’s legal defense, while throwing in some “investigative reporting” to justify its fund appeal.

So, if you’re feeling generous this holiday season, and considering that Rapplerettes won’t be able to serenade you with Christmas carols, you might want to consider donating via Rappler’s crowdfunding.
