With deep ties to the west coast, the band is stepping up in a big way to help those battling fires on the front lines in California, Oregon and Washington through their All Within My Hands Foundation. 

Wildfires have become a cruel and unwelcome, annual benchmark in California, and this year we have seen them tragically extend across the entire west coast of our country. This is the fourth consecutive year, dating back to the formation of the Foundation, that All Within My Hands has activated to support fire relief: the critical local services component of our mission. This year, we will be donating a sum of $250,000 to five organizations on the front line of this environmental crisis.
