METALLICA Surprise Donates 25,000 Euros To Finnish Charity
Metallica has been doing quite a bit of good with their All Within My Hands foundation ever since its inception in 2017. The foundation's goal is to help local communities with issues pertaining to hunger and poverty and is doing just that with Helsinki, Finland's Veikko and Lahja Hursti Charitable Trust.
According to YLE, Metallica surprised the trust with a 25,000 Euro donation after two of their shows on May 9 and May 11. "We are still in shock. My daughter and I just met the band and we took a photo together," said Heikki Hursti, the head of the charity, who added that the band sought out the charity's contact information after their meeting and surprised them with the donation. For those curious, 25,000 Euros equates to about $29,901.
