Month of Giving Supports Feeding America and Direct Relief With $100k Grants

Jun 14, 2021

With your support and enthusiasm, and of course shopping prowess in the Metallica Store and on the auction site, we took our second annual Month of Giving to a whole new level with $200,000 raised to split between Feeding America and Direct Relief!

Exceeding all our expectations, 59 Metallica Fan Club Chapters raised $69,383.40 for the Foundation. The All Within My Hands Board and its advisors committed to matching the first $50,000 of those gifts, bringing the total to $119,383.40 raised by the fans! Major congrats to The Outlaw Corn - their chapter raised the most with $10,512.79!

Thank you for believing in the work that AWMH does and joining us in our mission. Our partners at Feeding America and Direct Relief thank you too!

“We are grateful for Metallica and its fans for their continued commitment to help provide meals to our neighbors. Their gift of $100,000 will help the Feeding America network provide at least 1 million meals to children and families, many of whom continue to face hardships in light of the pandemic. Together, we can provide hope and nourishment to people in need.”
-Lauren Biedron
Vice President of Corporate Partnerships at Feeding America

"Direct Relief is deeply committed to honoring the generosity and intent behind every donation by stretching every dollar in the most efficient way possible, recognizing that contributions to Direct Relief are not for Direct Relief, but those we serve. We are profoundly thankful to Metallica and Metallica fans worldwide for their support, which will translate directly into helping people who need, but cannot afford, critical health services."
- Thomas Tighe
President and CEO of Direct Relief
