We Did It! FIRE to Hire Video Fellow Thanks to Donors

January 14, 2010

Yesterday, FIRE reached our goal of raising $25,000 for our Video Fellow Matching Gift Fund! FIRE donors Raymie Stata and Kimberly Sweidy have agreed to match our donors’ generosity and double the amount we raised, enabling us to immediately begin the process of hiring our first-ever Video Fellow. Thank you so much to everyone who contributed to the fund, and most especially to Raymie and Kimberly. We are very eager to begin to capture our amazing cases on film so that we can better share with the public the real people and stories behind our work. With a Video Fellow, we’ll be able to bring our issues before the public to an extent never before possible—and we can’t wait to get started! Please stay tuned for the official job opening to be announced sometime next week. And again, thank you!
