Metallica donates to children with cancer!18.07.2019
Who would think that the rock band Metallica would choose children with cancer as their charity? But it’s true! Metallica donates a portion of ticket sales to a local charity in every city they perform, encouraging fans around the world to join both Metallica and All Within My Hands (AWMH) in giving back. During the Metallica WorldWired Tour 2019 in Tartu, the band has surprisingly donated a part of the ticket sales to the Estonian Association of Parents of Children with Cancer.
The representatives of our association Kaili Lellep (Chair of the Management board of the EAPCC), Merlin Bettler and Reimo Möll (members of EAPCC and volunteers) had the unique opportunity to meet the band members shortly before the show on 18 July and receive the charity check directly from the band – this was a moment which will be captured to the history by the charity organization All Within My Hands and also into the memories of the representatives of the EAPCC.
Estonian Association of Parents of Children with Cancer is extremely thankful that such a famous and significant band values our activity and appreciates it with their donation. Chair of the Management Board of EAPCC Kaili Lellep said that “We are honored to have a such a remarkable attention by such a famous rock band and we promise to use every donated euro directly to benefit the children with cancer, who need the treatment or help urgently.” Lellep added that “Metallica’s choice to give a donation to our association came as a very big surprise as you should not expect that world-famous rock band would target their charity activities to children with cancer.”
“From the bottom of my heart, thank you, Metallica!”, she said.
Thank you Live Nation Estonia whose proposal it was to donate to us!
