Giving Tuesday is the annual day following the consumer obsession of Black Friday that focuses on charity and supporting non-profits. It has been a year of giving back for Metallica with the formation of their All Within My Hands charity with concerts, donating proceed from shows at every show to a local charity, a day of services and all kinds of special auctions of merch. Now for Giving Tuesday Metallica is releasing their recent Helping Hands Benefit Concert, on limited-edition, 140g colored vinyl mixed by Greg Fidelman (Slayer). The Met Store is also releasing a limited-edition etched glass featuring the iconic Pushead artwork for “One,” as a glass etching available on Tuesday at 1 PM PST. Proceeds from the sale of both items will be donated directly to AWMH and will be used to support communities in need, primarily in the areas of workforce education and the fight against hunger.
