BEHEMOTH Donates Money Turned Away By UNICEF To Children's Hospital

Behemoth, doing actual good in the world.

Behemoth recently sold a bunch of black teddy bears to raise money for the Polish arm of UNICEF. The band's donation was unreasonably turned away by UNICEF due to "the nature of the messages accompanying the products you sell," or basically because Poland's UNICEF doesn't like Behemoth's overall message and imagery.

Behemoth has now revealed that they've successfully donated the 10,000 złoty (about $2485.80 USD) to the children's hospital Szpital Dziecięcy Polanki, who clearly give a damn about who they're helping in the world. Behemoth's webstore admin posted the following message on Instagram alongside a photo proving the donation.

"Legions! The whole profit from sales of 100 teddies turned out to be (rounded up) 10 000 PLN (around 2200 EUR). We’ve decided to directly support the biggest children’s hospital in Nergal's (and mine) hometown, @gdansk_official – Szpital Dziecięcy Polanki. They are making the real miracles saving kids lives. Thank you Legions for being so generous. The document attached is a transfer confirmation which I wanted to post as a proof we’ve done it."
