According to Reuters, METALLICA has donated 250,000 euros (approximately $279,000) to a Romanian association building the country's first pediatric oncology hospital.The band made the donation to Daruieste Viata (Give Life) ahead of the its sold-out concert on Wednesday (August 14) at Arena Națională in Bucharest.The donation was made through METALLICA's non-profit foundation All Within My Hands, which was established in 2017 as a means to invest in the people and places that have supported the band. It also provides a mechanism for METALLICA's fans to become engaged in philanthropy and volunteerism. The foundation is focused on supporting sustainable communities through workforce education (in addition to combatting hunger through an alliance with Feeding America), and is fully supported by the band, the AWMH board, and by fans. All expenses of the foundation are covered by the band, the board, and a few special friends, so that 100% of donations go to the organizations it supports. AWMH is a registered 501©3 non-profit organization.In its first six months of operation, All Within My Hands donated more than $750,000 to local food banks around the world — a practice the band and the Foundation continued on METALLICA's recent North American and European tours. They've donated at least $10,000 to local food banks in every city and met dedicated people who focus their daily lives on helping others.Back in May 2018, METALLICA drummer and co-founder Lars Ulrich visited the San Francisco-Marin Food Bank to give a helping hand alongside some dedicated and loyal METALLICA fans and hard-working volunteers.Ulrich created a PSA for the food bank in partnership with All Within My Hands. He urged locals to offer a helping hand to those suffering from hunger.
