It’s safe to say that Jon Bon Jovi don’t “give love a bad name,” especially with the kindness he exudes in his philanthropic efforts. While almost everyone is aware of his popular contributions to the rock music industry, considerably fewer know of his charitable generosity. Since the 1980’s, when Bon Jovi’s stardom rose, he has been giving to philanthropic causes. His contributions started small and eventually experienced a snowball affect. This year, Bon Jovi was rated number one on Forbes’ Most Charitable Celebrity list for his efforts aiding Special Olympics, American Red Cross, Habitat for Humanity, Project H.O.M.E, Covenant House, the Oprah Winfrey Show, and several other causes and non-profits. He has spent time educating himself on the plights of the less fortunate including homelessness and poverty.
