The Month Of May Is Metallica’s “Month Of Giving”
The Band Continues To Help People Amid The Global Crisis
For the last two years, Metallica would urge their fans every May to volunteer at food banks for the band’s “Day of Service.” This is their way of giving back through their All Within My Hands charitable organization. Because of the coronavirus pandemic, they decided to do something different.
In a video, drummer Lars Ulrich said: “Inspired by today’s #GivingTuesdayNow, a new global date of giving in response to the global need caused by COVID-19, we’re going to spotlight four organizations we’re supporting throughout this crisis. Each week this month, we will share with you what these organizations do and show you how you can chip in to help. We’ll be contributing proceeds from special weekly featured merchandise in the Metallica store and continuing to donate funds raised during the #MetallicaMondays streaming concerts.”
He added, “We know times are tough for so many right now, and we truly appreciate the phenomenal support you’ve given us, our All Within My Hands, and these other worthy organizations. If you would like more information and/or contribute, all the details are on AllWithinMyHands.org right now.”
