Rock legends Metallica has donated 250,000 euros ($279,000 USD) to a Romanian association that is currently building the country’s first pediatric oncology hospital.
They made the donation to Daruieste Viata (Give Life) ahead of their sold-out concert this past Wednesday at Arena Națională in Bucharest.
The donation was made through the band’s non-profit foundation “All Within My Hands”. The foundation which was established in 2017 supports sustainable communities through workforce education along with fighting hunger with ally “Feeding America”.
The band covers all expenses of the foundation, the board and close friends of the band, so 100% of all donations go to organizations AWMH supports.
Within its first six months, All Within My Hands donated more than $750,000 to local food banks worldwide.
