Metallica donates $500,000 to help feed Ukrainian refugees

Mr. Nimbus | 04/05/2022

Metallica has pledged $500,000 (£381,000) to helping Ukrainian refugees.

The money will go to organisers at World Central Kitchen (WCK) and follows on from a previous $100,000 (£76,200) grant given by the heavy metal band via its All Within My Hands foundation.

Metallica’s James Hetfield, Lars Ulrich, Kirk Hammett, and Robert Trujillo are seeking to raise a total of $1 million (£762, 000) for the organisation by the end of their Month of Giving, which has been extended to two months this year.

“The work that (WCK founder) Chef José Andrés and the dedicated World Central Kitchen cooks do on the frontlines in a humanitarian crisis is nothing short of incredible. We are inspired, humbled, and beyond proud to support their teams currently in six European countries serving the millions of Ukrainians who have been forced to leave their homes,” drummer Ulrich said in a statement. “WCK represents everything that Metallica and our All Within My Hands foundation stand for by providing meals with dignity and hope worldwide.”

For the initiative, the band will also be selling exclusive merchandise – including a campaign designed by the band’s go-to artist Andrew Cremeans – on their website. All proceeds will go to WCK’s #ChefsForUkraine cause.

They will also double all donations made through their All Within My Hands website now to reach their $1 million goal.
