Metallica Donates $279,000 to a Romanian Pediatric Hospital

As they have done for the last two years since founding the All Within My Hands charity (AWMH), Metallica has donated money to needy organizations the world over during their World Wired Tour. According to a published report, Metallica has donated a quarter-of-amillions Eueros (279,000 USD) to a pediatric hospital in Romania this week. 

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.

In every city they perform in, Metallica collects and donates money to local services. 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(c)3 non-profit organization.
