In case you’ve never heard the tragic story of Morgan Harrington, she was a Virginia Tech student killed some years ago after disappearing from a Metallica show.
Now, Metallica — who had previously offered a massive reward for information leading to her murderers — have partnered with the Virginia Tech university bookstore to produce an “Enter Sandman” shirt.
The band’s share of all shirts sold will benefit the Morgan Dana Harrington Scholarship Fund.
Reports claim the first month of sales of the shirt generated $17,000 for the fund.
The Virginia Tech bookstore will be able to sell the shirts until at least next football season. After that, Metallica and the bookstore may choose to extend the partnership.
I think they should. It’s a noble cause.
Any of you Virginia Tech students want to mail me one of them shirts, I would certainly rock it.
Or I could just order one here.
