In February 2017, Metallica announced the establishment of All Within My Hands, a non-profit foundation that "aims to assist and enrich the lives of members of the communities who have supported the band for years, as well as encourage participation from fans and friends." Through the organization, the group has donated proceedings from ticket and album sales to different charities including the Make-A-Wish Foundation and Gilda's Club NYC, a network of support groups for cancer survivors and their families. In the first six months of its existence, the charity donated more than $750,000 to various local food banks all over the world and Metallica has kept up that precedent by donating $10,000 in every city they stop in on their current WorldWire Tour.
On November 3rd, the iconic thrashers will take the stage at San Francisco's The Masonic to put on a rare live performance, 100 percent of the profits from which will go to All Within My Hands. The event will also feature an auction where one-of-a-kind items will be up for grabs, as well as an additional acoustic performance from Kentucky rockers Cage the Elephant. Tickets are limited, but a contest is being held for fans who donate $10 or more to the foundation — the winners will receive a VIP package including third-row floor seats, autographed posters, tickets to the pre-show reception and more.
