“Founded in 2017, All Within My Hands Foundation is dedicated to creating sustainable communities by supporting workforce education. The fight against hunger, and other critical local services.”
“Feeding America is AWMH’s primary partner when it comes to combating hunger. While we defer to their numbers in many cases, we remind you that this is an average and a dollar can be stretched further in different parts of the country. In general, for our donations $1.00 = 3 meals. So that translates to 30,000 meals per show.”
“AWMH supports workforce education through the Metallica Scholars initiative. Which we established in 2019 with 10 schools and expanded in 2020 to 15 schools. When it comes to education and the needs of the Metallica Scholars grant recipients, the dollar to impact ratio is less straight forward.”
“Schools are selected through a competitive application process and are given $100,000 each to use in the manner in which they find most beneficial for their programs. That being said, through our partners at the American Association of Community Colleges, we make sure funds are being used appropriately in line with our initiative.”
I am a Brazilian journalist, a Classic Rock and Heavy Metal lover. Music has always been part of my life, helped me through tough moments and was with me to celebrate the good ones. When I became a journalist I knew I wanted to write about my passions. After college I did a postgraduate degree in digital communication. This has helped me to make the website better and bring the best of classic rock to the world! MTB: 0021377/MG
