Bon Jovi’s Soul Foundation has donated to several nonprofits in Camden- to Hopeworks, St Joe’s Carpenters Society, Heart of Camden, and Joseph’s House where I work! He donates mostly to housing projects and programs that fight homelessness. The Soul Foundation’s donation to Joseph’s House last year enabled us to stay open for the month of April. Here’s a short article about Heart of Camden honoring him at their banquet recently: http://articles.philly.com/2011-12-01/news/30463345_1_housing-projects-jon-bon-jovi-rain-garden
Plus- I got to meet him when he visited the Hopeworks Crib last fall, and he’s cool and surprisingly down to earth. Except when he wore his sunglasses inside. On a cloudy day.
