Five Finger Death Punch and Breaking Benjamin donate $190K to charities
Reported by Consequence Of Sound, the two bands have given a portion of their co-headlining tour profits to two charities of their choice.
“We’ve had the privilege to work with veteran and police organizations for years,” FFDP's Zoltan Bathory shared in a statement.
He continued by saying:
“Today we are making this donation as a token of our respect and gratitude to those who committed to protect and serve, to those who signed up to bravely hold that thin blue line between ‘civilization as we know it’ and ‘lawless savagery and chaos’. Unfortunately, every 58 hours a police officer who believes in something sacrifices everything and dies in the line of duty. C.O.P.S. (Concerns Of Police Survivors) helps and benefits the families of our fallen heroes in blue.”
Additionally, Breaking Benjamin's Ben Burnley said of their chosen charity:
“We’re honored to be able to utilize the thing we love to do most as a tool to help children in need,” Burnley shared. “Organizations such as Prevent Child Abuse America remind us that we are the voice of the voiceless and positive change is possible in otherwise hopeless situations for these kids. We offer our utmost gratitude to every fan who bought a ticket this summer and made a difference. And last but not least, thank you to the selfless people at Prevent Child Abuse America for inspiring greatness and all that you do to make the future brighter for so many.”
Breaking Benjamin and Five Finger Death Punch will be hitting the road later this year for another co-headlining run. Joining the bands on their fall run is Bad Wolves and In Flames, who will be appearing on select dates respectively.
