The staff of Charlie Hebdo has vowed to keep the magazine alive, and outside help is rolling in to ensure they can keep that promise.
The French government is pledging nearly €1 million (about $1.2 million) to Charlie Hebdo, the French satirical magazine that was the target in one of the most horrific attacks France has seen in years. The pledge, first reported by France 24, is the largest in what has become a growing surge of donations for the magazine.
Charlie Hebdo announced on Thursday via its website that the next issue of the magazine would come out on Jan. 14 with the title “Le Journal Des Surivants” or “The Magazine of the Survivors.”
Other donations continued to come in. Google donated €250,000 ($296,000) to the magazine through its Press Innovation Fund, according to a report from The Guardian. French newspapers promised another €250,000 through the Press and Pluralism Fund, according to Les Echos. Guardian Media Group is pitching in another £100,000 (more than $150,000).
