**UPDATE (July 18, 2018)**
IRE is grateful for the overwhelming response. We received more than 370 offers to help the Capital Gazette put out its paper. At this point, the Baltimore Sun, which is coordinating the efforts, said that because of your generosity, they now have "more offers than we could possibly use." However, if you’d still like to help, you can go to this page and contribute to a fund for families and/or for memorial scholarships.
Again, on behalf of the IRE board, a heartfelt thank you. You make us proud to be journalists.
— Cheryl W. Thompson
President, IRE Board of Directors
The Capital Gazette staff needs our help. In the wake of the June 28 shooting, they need journalists to help publish the daily paper.
They are looking for reporters and editors who can commit two to five consecutive days in July, August and/or September. While all help is appreciated, journalists will need to be on-site at the Baltimore Sun office. The Sun wishes to clarify that visiting journalists are being paid.
If you wish to help, please complete this form by Tuesday, July 24. The list will be submitted to The Baltimore Sun, which is coordinating the assistance. The Sun will be contacting journalists with additional details.
If you would like to help the families of the shooting victims and/or support memorial scholarships in their honor, please visit this page for more information.
If you have questions, contact IRE’s Director of Partnerships Chris Vachon at firstname.lastname@example.org.
