Deftones has donated a total of $105,000 raised through the band’s “Adopt-a-Dot” charity campaign.

As part of the initiative, fans could “adopt” one of the 12,995 dots on the cover of the new Deftones album, Ohms. Proceeds will be split evenly between UC Davis Children’s Hospital and Crew Nation, the music industry’s crew charity.

“With pride, today we’re making our Adopt-a-Dot donations to UC Davis Children’s Hospital and Crew Nation,” Deftones says in a statement. “Hopefully these will go to making things a little easier for those facing challenging times.”

“This wouldn’t have been possible without the support of our fans and friends that contributed to this campaign,” the band adds. “We sincerely thank you all.”

Ohms was released this past September. It’s the follow-up to 2016’s Gore.
