A little over 18 months ago, METALLICA announced the formation of All Within My Hands (AWMH), a 501(c)3 non-profit foundation focused on creating sustainable communities by tackling the issues of hunger and workforce education and encouraging volunteerism. Now the band and everyone on the All Within My Hands board are excited to celebrate the foundation’s first full year with the All Within My Hands Foundation Helping Hands Concert And Auction on November 3 at the Masonic in San Francisco. This very special evening will provide a unique opportunity to learn about the organizations METALLICA and AWMH have supported, to bid on one-of-a-kind auction items, and to experience a rare acoustic METALLLICA show. Also contributing an acoustic set will be the band’s friends CAGE THE ELEPHANT.
AWMH was established in 2017 as a way for METALLICA and the entire METALLICA family to give back to communities around the world that have supported the band on tour. In its first six months of operation, the Foundation donated more than $750,000 to local food banks around the world — a practice the band and AWMH have continued on the North American “WorldWired” tour, donating $10,000 to local food banks in every city and meeting dedicated people who focus their daily lives on helping others.
The METALLICA family and the All Within My Hands Foundation board members are committed to running an organization of the highest integrity where expenses are kept to a minimum and are paid for entirely by the band, the board, and friends who have worked with the band over many years and are excited to help in this mission. As such, 100% of all donations from fans and third parties go to the organizations AWMH supports.
