Metallica have announced that they will donate $500,000 to World Central Kitchen to help feed Ukrainian refugees who fled the war.
The donation is in addition to the rockers’ recent $100,000 grant – with the goal of bringing that number to a total of $1 million over the next two months.
The aid is being released through Metallica’s charity foundation All Within My Hands, which has organized a number of fundraising events to raise money for Ukrainians.
Through May 31, the Metallica.com store will feature exclusive merchandise for sale, and donate all proceeds to WCK.
Andrew Cremeans has created a one-of-a-kind shirt piece for this campaign, and those who are interested can pre-order the shirt now.
“We’ll also have auctions and raffles, including the guitars James and Kirk will be playing the National Anthem on at Metallica Night with the San Francisco Giants on May 24,” Metallica said in a statement.
Those who would like to contribute can visit the AWMH donation page and choose the World Central Kitchen Ukraine Relief Fund.
World Central Kitchen’s #ChefsForUkraine campaign has served over 5 million meals to refugees across six countries since February 24.
