Five Finger Death Punch + Breaking Benjamin Contribute $60K More to Charities From Fall 2018 Tour
Tis the season for giving, but Five Finger Death Punch and Breaking Benjamin have been giving for much of 2018. The two acts teamed up earlier this summer to contribute monies from their ticketing to aid two organizations and then followed suit with an additional $60,000 given out from their fall touring.
The two acts just wrapped their fall trek on Tuesday (Dec. 11) and they've revealed that $30,000 will be going to VETPAW (Veterans Empowered to Protect African Wildlife) courtesy of Five Finger Death Punch and $30,000 will go to the St. Jude Children's Research Hospital courtesy of Breaking Benjamin.
VETPAW seeks to end the illegal poaching of rhinos, elephants and other endangered species by employing combat veterans to form anti-poaching units, train local park rangers and provide support in communities. St. Jude Children's Research Hospital has made it their mission to further research that will help end childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases.
Between the summer and fall tours, the two acts have combined to donate over $250,000 to charities over the past year.
Five Finger Death Punch have been on the road supporting their And Justice for None album, while Breaking Benjamin have promoted their Ember effort. Both albums made Loudwire's list of the Top 30 Hard Rock Albums of 2018 (seen below).
