This past year has been an incredible one for All Within My Hands. We jumped at the opportunity to expand our giving and reaffirm our commitment to our charitable partners. And we got to enjoy some much-needed camaraderie courtesy of the M72 World Tour. While we reflect on 2023, we’re even more inspired to hit the ground running in 2024.

When we started thinking about this year’s Giving Tuesday, we thought, let’s keep it mellow… and then we laughed so hard we nearly hurt ourselves. Mellow, what’s that?!?! Needless to say, the ball started rolling, the team came together, and we built out a Giving Tuesday as we’ve never curated before.

For four years running, we've worked with the master craftsmen and our friends at Wolverine Boots & Apparel to create something unique to support our Metallica Scholars program. This year, we’ve leveled up with a stunning high-top leather sneaker!

Ford Field in Detroit hosted Metallica’s final M72 Weekend Takeover of 2023. It was bittersweet for the fans, but a bonus for three important organizations receiving a combined $100,000 grants: Gleaners Food Bank, Alternatives For Girls, and The Farmlink Project.

The World Central Kitchen Relief Team arrived in Mexico City shortly after the storm passed, airlifting thousands of meals and bottles of water into areas cut off by damage.

Wildfires that started on Tuesday and moved quickly across the island of Maui have ravaged the historic town of Lahaina.

These devastating fires are the product of a confluence of weather conditions: dry vegetation, low humidity, and the vigorous winds of Hurricane Dora fanning the flames.

Metallica has officially kicked off the North American leg of the M72 World Tour at the Meadowlands Sports Complex. Now, the band and AWMH are continuing to give back to local communities, resuming our campaign in New Jersey and New York.

The March AWMH auction is here and this month’s featured item is a Master of Puppets Remastered Deluxe Box Set autographed by all four members of Metallica!

A primary focus of Metallica’s All Within My Hands Foundation has been the fight against hunger. With every stop on the band’s WorldWired Tour, at home and abroad, the guys have made a donation of $10,000 to a local community food bank. That act of touching the lives of people in cities the tour visits inspired members of the crew to start a campaign of their own.

Ten colleges from across the country will receive $100,000 to support more than 1,000 students training to enter the American workforce. These students will become the first cohort of Metallica Scholars.

All Within My Hands has had a lot to be #ThankfulFor during 2018 - primarily YOUR generosity and support!

As part of Giving Tuesday, we’re excited to announce that we’ll be releasing Helping Hands…Live & Acoustic at The Masonic on limited edition, 140g colored vinyl with proceeds donated to All Within My Hands.

The audio of the concert is now available on both CD and digital download with a portion of all proceeds going directly to the Foundation.

We would like to encourage you to join us in supporting those in need and our first responders in any way you can. Every little bit helps.

As we gear up to hit the road again, All Within My Hands is also preparing to assist our partners at Feeding America along with their network of local food banks.

The inaugural Helping Hands Concert and Auction held in San Francisco raised over $1.3 million and there are so many people to thank who made this event happen that we don’t know where to start!

Road Recovery is an entertainment industry-based non-profit organization dedicated to helping young people battle addiction and other adversities by empowering at-risk youth from all backgrounds to face their struggles, while teaching them comprehensive life skills. Last week James hung out with some of the Road Recovery kids in NYC.

The All Within My Hands Helping Hands Concert & Auction was a celebration in all ways and respects, and perhaps one of those occasions where the music was never meant to be the full story. Let me explain further…

The All Within My Hands Foundation benefit concert & auction is coming up this Saturday.

We are proud to announce our first day of service on Wednesday, May 23rd as we invite Metallica fans across the United States to join us in volunteering for a day with our friends at the community food banks we supported during last summer’s North American tour.

Last month we kicked off the All Within My Hands eBay auctions including autographed memorabilia, music, and Metallica experiences with all proceeds benefiting the foundation.

A little over a year ago we proudly launched All Within My Hands. Since then Metallica and the foundation have contributed to relief efforts in hurricane and earthquake-ravaged areas.

Today we had the pleasure of hosting representatives of The Mission Continues at Metallica HQ. It was a real honor to meet some of the team who assist veterans in adjusting to life at home and finding purpose through community impact.

We were honored to be a part of the Band Together Bay Area benefit concert held at AT&T Park in San Francisco on November 9th. Thanks to you, $17 million was raised through ticket sales, sponsorships and online donations for low-income communities hit hardest by the North Bay fires.

To celebrate the holidays, we’re excited to announce that in the spirit of their “Give Good” campaign Starbucks and Spotify are donating $1 million to be divided between our All Within My Hands, Chance the Rapper’s Social Works and Lady Gaga’s Born This Way Foundation.
