Google Donates $300,000 To Charlie Hebdo
TNW states that following the terrorist attack on French satirical weekly Charlie Hebdo donations are arriving to support the magazine. After the French government pledged about $1.2 million, Guardian Media Group and Google are donating $150,000 and €250,000 (roughly $300,000) respectively. The money will be used to restore the building and publish one million copies of the next issues (instead of usual 60,000).
French media groups like Le Monde, state TV and radio companies are also working to collect money for Charlie Hedbo, and the two groups that distribute Charlie Hebdo’s papers will not charge a fee for next week’s issue.
Artists from all over the world have demonstrated their solidarity with the publication by publishing caricatures on the Islamic extremists.
