Solar messaging champions have lit Good Light Messages of Hope to inspire the world during the lockdown in the time of COVID 19.
These local everyday heroes have also risen to the occasion to help those in need amidst a global pandemic by lighting the way for others with Good Light Messages of Hope, a collaboration between Good News Pilipinas and the Liter of Light.
Good Light Message of Hope is a social campaign that uses solar lamps to form encouraging words from the everyday heroes into solar messages of hope. The project encourages people to stay hopeful while fighting the virus and its impact.
The Liter of Light aims to provide an ecologically and economically sustainable source of light to underprivileged communities around the world. Filipino innovator Illac Diaz of the Liter of Light, explains that he wanted to inspire people to donate to COVID-19 efforts through solar messaging.
The Good News Pilipinas and the Liter of Light team arranged to illuminate the collected messages at night time. And what better way to light that darkness with than with positive messages of hope!
