As one of the most commercially successful rock bands of the last 50 years, the members of Metallica continue to find ways to pass their good fortunes on to those in need through their non-profit, All Within My Hands. The band’s latest philanthropic initiative will expand their annual All Within My Hands Day of Service, which focuses on providing supplies to food pantries that feed the homeless across the country, into a “Month of Giving,” as announced via the Metallica website on Tuesday.
The band will plan on highlighting a different organization which they are supporting via monetary grants in the name of COVID-19 relief every Tuesday throughout the month of May. The band’s online store will also feature “Month of Giving” products with sales proceeds to be donated to the selected partner organizations throughout month. In total, All Within My Hands is providing $350,000 in grants to four organizations dedicated to assisting those affected by the global COVID-19 pandemic, including Feeding America, Direct Relief, Crew Nation, and The USBG National Charity Organization.
