Robert said (transcribed by MetalCastle):
“Through what we do and how we channel our energy – we can only hope that our fans will then take that next step and get to the shelters to help. It is not always sent it around money [or] how much money can you throw in the pot to help or whatever. You know, sometimes it is just getting over there and helping at food banks and that donating your time and your services.
I mean – you would still go online, and you can find out what is in your area and what you can do to help. You know, it just – [the] time is a great thing. I mean, if people have time to donate their services, even just a little bit, it goes a long way.
“It is always super great when we can, you know, hand off a check and that we know it is gonna go somewhere special. And again, I use the word help as best as we can try, and I know that you can too. So, get up there and do it.”
Metallica captioned, “Robert talks about the importance of the Metallica Family in executing the All Within My Hands Foundation’s mission. Whether through one of our Day of Service events or inspired by #AWMH to act on their own, we have been completely blown away by how our fans have answered the call! And it’s not just about giving money. Your time and your voice are extremely valuable resources as well. Both volunteering at a local organization and spreading the word about a cause you are passionate about are just a couple ways you can make a positive impact.”
According to Metallica, the Helping Hands Concert & Auction is an acoustic show benefitting All Within My Hands, beginning at 2 PM PST on Saturday, November 14. All proceeds from ticket sales will help communities in need.
