Metallica Collaborate With Spotify + Starbucks for New Charitable Gift Card
With all of Metallica's success , the group has naturally given back to various charities. They're continuing their philanthropy with the launch of a new partnership with Spotify and Starbucks. Both companies will be donating a combined $1 million to three charities, including Metallica's All Within My Hands Foundation, Lady Gaga's Born This Way Foundation and Chance the Rapper's Social Works.
Along with this partnership and donation to their foundation, Starbucks will also release a specially branded Metallica gift card to over 8,000 stores this holiday season.
