Metallica Rocks for a Cause: $3 Million Raised at ‘Helping Hands’ Concert and Auction

Metallica‘s latest charity extravaganza, the “Helping Hands Concert & Auction,” raised a whopping $3 million for All Within My Hands, the band’s non-profit dedicated to sustainable communities through education, hunger relief, and disaster response. The December 16th event, hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, was held at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles and featured musical guests St. Vincent and Greta Van Fleet.

Leaders from six non-profits graced the stage to receive grants from All Within My Hands, including Baby2Baby, First Star, Feeding America, World Central Kitchen, mikeroweWorks Foundation, and The Skatepark Project. Peter Delgrosso, executive director of All Within My Hands, expressed gratitude for the “lasting impact” the funds will have on the charity’s initiatives, including the Metallica Scholars initiative and disaster relief efforts.

This year’s “Helping Hands Concert & Auction” was not the only way Metallica is giving back. The band’s 2021 tribute album, “The Metallica Blacklist,” raised over $1 million, with profits divided equally between All Within My Hands and charities chosen by the contributing artists, such as Happy Hippie Foundation (Miley Cyrus), RAINN (Phoebe Bridgers), and Outlaw State of Kind (Chris Stapleton).

Founded in 2017, All Within My Hands has a history of charitable giving, including a £40,000 donation to a Manchester homeless charity and a $100,000 donation to California wildfire relief efforts. As Metallica prepares to release their 11th studio album “72 Seasons” and return to the UK for Download Festival 2023, they continue to demonstrate their commitment to making a difference through music.
