As you may already know, the whole world is watching the unavoidable disaster in Australia. For about one week, the fire has affected almost 5.5 million hectares while destroying more than 1.300 houses.

While the huge bushfire is destroying wildlife, animals, and homes, Metallica made a really important statement today and showed their support for the Australian people.

The legendary Metallica announced that they pledged $750,000 to ‘NSW Rural Fire Service’ to give their hand for the victims in Australia.

Here is the official statement of the band:

“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 are truly heartbreaking.

Please join us and do whatever you can to assist as we, along with our @allwithinmyhandsfoundation, are pledging A$750,000 to the NSW Rural Fire Service and to the Country Fire Authority in Victoria to aid in the relief efforts.

@NSWRFS 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.

@CFAvic 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.
