Metallica launches charity campaign to help affected by Covid-19

With the world suffering from the Covid-19 pandemic, Metallica announced another charity action. Called the Month of Giving, the iniciative will extend throughout May. And aims to support a different organization each week so that it can receive donations.

According to the band, their non-profit organization All Within My Hands (AWMH) approached all it’s partners in the United States. And asked them what they needed most in each location. The group hopes to help each institution according to their need.

By the beginning of April, the AWMH foundation had gathered an amount of $ 350,000 for Feeding America, Direct Relief, Crew Nation, USBG National Charity Foundation, among other organizations around the world.

Watch Lars Ulrich statement and Metallica official release:

“In more typical times, we would be hosting our All Within My Hands Day of Service at local food banks across the country this month. But this year is different. Inspired by #GivingTuesdayNow, we decided to make May our Month of Giving. To do our part in meeting the unprecedented need caused by COVID-19.”

“Rather than focusing on one campaign this year, every Tuesday throughout May we will spotlight a different organization we are supporting through our AWMH grants for COVID-19 relief. Each week we will share with you what these organizations do. And show you how you can chip in. The Metallica Store will also feature select “Month of Giving” products and donate proceeds to our partner organizations throughout the entire month of May.”

“Week one kicks off with Feeding America. AWMH reached out to our partner food banks across the United States and asked them what, in their own words, they need most at each location. Stay tuned to AllWithinMyHands.org for updates on how you can continue to join us throughout this #MonthOfGiving.”
