The wildfire saga in California is a sad one and it almost seems like a repeat of last year. Well, Metallica are trying to do their part and kicked in $100,000 to help with the relief effort.
If this story sounds familiar, it's because Metallica also donated $100,000 last year for wildfire relief. The band's All Within My Hands charitable organization will split the donation equally between the Sonoma County Resilience Fund and the California Community Foundation’s Wildfire Relief Fund.
Here's Metallica's statement on the matter:
“Sadly, for the third year in a row, communities we have called home throughout the state of California are again experiencing the tragedy left in the wake of wildfires.
“The All Within My Hands Foundation would like to lend support to those affected in both Northern and Southern California by donating $100,000 to assist in relief, $50,000 to the Sonoma County Resilience Fund – created by the Community Foundation Sonoma County – and $50,000 to the Wildfire Relief Fund – created by the California Community Foundation.
“Both organizations are dedicated to long-term recovery efforts, helping residents resume normal lives as they get back on their feet after the devastation of these firestorms. We would also like to encourage you to join us in supporting those in need as well as the first responders who have been working tirelessly to keep Californians safe. Whether you are able to contribute money, non-perishable food, clothing and other supplies, or your time by volunteering or providing temporary housing, every bit helps.
