In February of 2017, we announced the formation of All Within My Hands. The Foundation aims to assist and enrich the lives of members of the communities who have supported the band for years, as well as encourage participation from fans and friends. All funds raised will be donated to a cross-section of national and local charities... every penny from your donations will go directly to our charity partners.
Metallica Scholars Spotlight
“Four years ago I had a massive heart attack and passed away for eight minutes and before that fateful day I was merely floundering through life. After recuperating physically from the heart attack I suffered from severe depression, until I got help through my local Community Health services where I was introduced to welding. This started my upward swing. Fast forward four and a half months where I discovered the Metallica welding scholarship program at Grand Rapids Community College.”
Where Metallica leads, the government should follow. While the rest of us were distracted by stories of America’s aristocracy fake-rowing their way into elite colleges, the heavy metal band just made the right kind of donation: $1 million in grants to 10 community colleges ($100,000 per college) to fund career and technical education programs.
The hottest Metallica ticket of the year, both nights of S&M² sold out immediately! But we saved a pair for night two for a lucky fan and guest to win, with proceeds going directly to the All Within My Hands Foundation.
For the second time in six months I am at the L.A. Food Bank with one of the biggest rock bands in the world. This past December I was here with members of the Foo Fighters for a barbeque and benefit to raise money for the food bank.
This time I am here on a Wednesday afternoon with Metallica' bassist Robert Trujillo, who is here as part of the "Day Of Service." He is here with dozens of volunteers, sorting foods, packing bags to feed the hungry.
At every stop on the WorldWired Tour throughout North American and Europe, either All Within My Hands or Metallica have donated $10,000 to a local food bank within each community the band visits. In November 2018, AWMH held its inaugural benefit: The Helping Hands Concert & Auction. Metallica headlined with a rare acoustic performance.
