The wonderful dudes in Metallica have teamed up with coffee juggernauts Starbucks and streaming behemoth, Spotify for the “Give Good” charity campaign. Starting tomorrow, Tuesday November 28th, 8,000 Starbuck locations will be selling special limited edition Metallica-designed gift cards. The proceeds will be given to Metallica’s All Within My Hands Foundation, which launched only just a year ago.
Metallica issued the following statement:
“As we celebrate the launch of our new website for our All Within My Hands foundation today, we’re also excited to announce that in the spirit of the holidays and their “Give Good” campaign Starbucks and Spotify are donating $1 million to be divided between our foundation, Chance the Rapper’s Social Works and Lady Gaga’s Born This Way Foundation. To commemorate the partnership, starting tomorrow (Tuesday, November 28th) limited edition gift cards featuring each artist will be available at 8,000 Starbucks stores throughout the U.S. while supplies last.
“Visit Starbucks.com to find your closest location and join us in giving back during the holiday season. Not all stores will carry the gift card, so be sure to call ahead to find out if they are available at your local Starbucks. Check out AllWithinMyHands.org for additional information about our foundation and the charity partners we support.”
Here’s more info on Metallica’s foundation:
“All Within My Hands Foundation is dedicated to creating sustainable communities by supporting workforce education, the fight against hunger, and other critical local services.”
“In February of 2017, we announced the formation of All Within My Hands. The foundation 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. All funds raised will be donated to a cross-section of national and local charities… every penny from your donations will go directly to our charity partners.”
This is a perfect gift for the holidays. Make sure to visit your local Starbucks tomorrow!
