Metallica donate $500k to help feed Ukrainian refugees

Metallica continue their philanthropic ways, announcing today that they have donated $500,000 to World Central Kitchen through their own charitable foundation, All Within My Hands.

A non-profit organization that has provided disaster relief for more than a decade, World Central Kitchen is currently serving meals to Ukrainian refugees in six countries.

"The work that 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," said Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich 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."

Metallica hope to ultimately provide $1 million to WCK in the coming months. To that end, they are selling exclusive merchandise via their website, including this Andrew Creameans-created t-shirt, with all proceeds slated to directly benefit WCK.
