Ukrainian metal act Jinjer recently canceled their North American tour dates and launched two new t-shirts to raise funds for the people of their home country. These funds will go to various charities aiding Ukrainians with food and medical supplies, as well as other basic necessities like water. Jinjer has now revealed they've raised close to $150,000 so far with the shirts, with some of the money going to a bomb shelter in Kyiv and other amounts headed to refugees in need of food and clothing.
