Jon Bon Jovi: A Fine Philanthropist

I read an article that said Jon Bon Jovi is Number 8 on the Forbes Top 100 Celebrity list. His recent concert tour is one of the highest grossing tours this year, placing him in the same category as young-uns Justin Bieber and Lady Gaga. Hard to believe after all these years, he's still got it. But he's got it in so many ways.

Let's face it - he's hot. That bone structure. Those eyes. All good. He's a talented singer and songwriter. Nothing to sneeze at. But he's also a philanthropist. Habitat for Humanity is a wonderful project he's a part of building homes in the Philadelphia area.

Now he's opening a restaurant, some say as soon as July, in Red Bank, NJ, serving people whether they can pay or not. Basically, customers are asked to pay, but if they can't, they're expected to do volunteer charity work in return for their meal.

It's nice to see a local boy do good. And it doesn't hurt that the local boy also looks good.

From this       To this

It's all good! Rock on, JBJ!!
