Posted by on January 8, 2020

In a great act of kindness, Metallica has donated $750,000 to the NSW Rural Fire Service and to the CFA (Country Fire Authority) to aid in the relief efforts of Australia’s wildfires. Metallica is known for their generosity as they gave $100,000 to California’s wildfires back in November and again back in 2017 for the North Bay wildfires.

Below is Metallica’s statement:

We are totally overwhelmed by the news of the wildfires sweeping through millions of acres across Australia, with major impact in New South Wales and Victoria. The resulting destruction and devastating effects on all residents, animals, the environment and the incredible land in Australia is truly heartbreaking.

Please join us and do whatever you can to assist as we, along with our All Within My Hands Foundation, are pledging A$750,000 to the NSW Rural Fire Service and to the CFA (Country Fire Authority) in Victoria to aid in the relief efforts.

NSW Rural Fire Service is the world’s largest volunteer firefighting organization and all funds donated during this State of Emergency are directed toward services related to and victims of these particularly destructive Australian bushfires.

CFA (Country Fire Authority) is a volunteer and community-based fire and emergency services organization which helps to protect 3.3 million Victorians, and works together with communities to keep Victorians safe from fire and other emergencies.
