Metallica‘s All Within My Hands Foundation has donated $500,000 to the World Central Kitchen to help feed Ukrainian refugees, according to Heavy Consequence. The organization was founded by Chef Jose Andres to provide “meals in response to humanitarian, climate, and community crises.”
Metallica’s Lars Ulrich said, “The work that Chef Jose Andres 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. WCK represents everything that Metallica and our All Within My Hands Foundation stand for by providing meals with dignity and hope worldwide.”
Metallica seeks to raise even more money for the cause — $1 million over the next two months, to be exact — so to help meet their goal, Metallica artist Andrew Cremeans has created a special t-shirt which is currently available via Metallica’s webstore. All proceeds from the sale of the shirts will benefit World Central Kitchen’s #ChefsForUkraine campaign. Donations are also appreciated via the All Within My Hands Foundation website.
