Met_OutsideHQ_0324_HQ_Herring__Herring3000-768x1024

Metallica + Carharrtt have been working on something special for this Labor Day. All sales from Carharrt.com will be donated to Metallica's All Within My Hands' (AWMH) Metallica Scholars Program This event on Labor Day is a powerful way to quickly fund the All Within My Hands' (AWMH) Metallica Scholars Program. AWMH has provided $1.5 million in scholarships (and matching funds $$ from partners) to various community colleges around the country to encourage people to learn the critical trades that keep this country going. After the first year, the Metallica Scholars Initiative demonstrated extraordinary results including job placement rates exceeding 90%. 

This Labor Day, September 6, ALL SALES on Carhartt.com will be donated to the Metallica Scholars Program

In 2021 AWMH expanded their nationwide Scholars program to include 23 community colleges (up from 15 in 2020 and 10 in 2019) and plan to donate $1.6 Million. These scholarships will directly support people interested in learning the trades & filling essential jobs as skilled workers. Since 2019, The Metallica Scholars program has served over 1,000 students at community colleges across the US.

As one of the biggest touring acts of all time, Metallica knows that stage crews and skilled trades-people are the backbone of the live events industry.

40 years ago, Metallica was founded when James Hetfield answered Lars Ulrich's classified ad and ended up with a career that changed his life. This Labor Day, Carhartt and Metallica's All Within My Hands Foundation recreate that 1981 ad to recruit a new generation of passionate job seekers looking to learn the skills that could change their lives.

"To build the workforce of the future, we need to connect more people to the training and education that helps fill essential jobs. With our partnership, we're sending the message that whether you're in high school looking for a first step, or out of work looking for a new start: come join the skilled trades." - Janet Ries, Vice President of Marketing at Carhartt

"Carhartt and All Within My Hands are bound by our shared passion for supporting workforce education. As two organizations dedicated to providing opportunity, we hope to expand the Metallica Scholars program to include even more schools this year, and to get even more students trained for a career in the skilled trades."- Dr. Edward Frank, Executive Director at All Within My Hands Foundation

"Yes… you read that right… LIVE!! We have a new date for our rescheduled Helping Hands Concert & Auction and we're hoping that EVERYONE will join us this time! We'll be streaming LIVE from HQ on Saturday, November 14th for our first-ever worldwide pay-per-view event where we'll perform a special acoustic show to benefit our foundation… as we play, you watch, all in real-time!

This will be our second acoustic concert to raise funds for All Within My Hands, and while we're disappointed that we cannot all be together in person, we're very excited that fans around the world will be able to watch the performance as it happens in the comfort of your own surroundings. We'll kick off the show at 2 PM Pacific Time that day, so hopefully, most of you can join us then, but if not, never fear… your ticket will allow you to watch the show as many times as you like within a 48-hour period once you start the stream.

Tickets are on sale now with four packages available: watch the show, add on the event shirt and audio download, or even join us digitally on our virtual fan wall for one song. Get your ticket at 2nu.gs/Metallica.

We'll also have some incredible auction items and experiences available for you to bid on a little closer to the show. As always, 100% of money raised, including ticket fees and auction items, goes directly to help someone in need; we pick up all the expenses to produce the show.

We're incredibly proud of what All Within My Hands has accomplished, especially this year with so many of our friends in need. In 2020 alone, AWMH has donated $645,000 to a number of COVID-19 related relief funds including Feeding America, Direct Relief, and several charities assisting those suddenly without work in the entertainment and hospitality industries. This fall, the Foundation also donated $350,000 to several agencies aiding those affected by wildfires up and down the West Coast. Finally, Metallica Scholars is now in its second year, supported by a $1.5 million grant benefiting 15 community colleges across the country.

We hope you'll join us for this very unique event on November 14th as all ticket sales will directly benefit the Foundation. We look forward to continuing these programs in 2021 and beyond with your help. For more info about All Within My Hands, please visit AllWithinMyHands.org."- Metallica
