Metallica Is Still Giving Back to Detroit – Here’s How

Metallica rocked Ford Field last weekend on Friday (Nov. 10) and Sunday (Nov. 12), and boy, did they deliver. The place was jam-packed both nights, and the guys gave what were by the the best performances I've ever seen from them. I mean, they also rock, but this time, they sounded incredibly solid, tight and focused. As it turns out, Metallica is still giving back to Detroit. Metallica Is Still Giving Back to Detroit - Here's How The guys of Metallica are very involved in charity work, including thorough their own charity, All Within My Hands. Following the band's Detroit shows, Metallica donated $100,000 to several Detroit charities. Their All Within My Hands charity donated a whopping $100,000 to Gleaners Food Bank, Alternatives for Girls and The Farmlink Project. Specifically, All Within My Hands donated $35,000 to Gleaners, which helps give households access to sufficient, nutritious food and other resources in Wayne, Oakland, Macomb, Livingston, and Monroe counties. They gave another $35,000 to Alternatives for Girls, which helps girls and young women experiencing homelessness and other risks to avoid violence, early pregnancy and exploitation. Finally, they gave $30,000 to The Farmlink Project, which is a national organization fighting to help get people access to food they need and connect farmers to food banks. The Farmlink Project has been with Metallica throughout their M72 World Tour. By the way, did you know that Dan Campbell of the Detroit Lions is a huge Metallica fan? He couldn't be at either show last weekend, though, due to flying out to Los Angeles for the Chargers game. It was worth it, as the Lions brought home an incredible win.
