On a day when the markets seem directionless, with U.S. being closed for Memorial Day, it is refreshing to see Jon Bon Jovi's interview with CNBC's Tanya Bryer.
Where he goes, he goes like the famous incognito, people know him and give him a hug. "That's a beautiful thing," he says, savouring the freedom and affection he receives to roam the neighbourhoods and communities he has inspired to breathe life and fun into.
The JBJ Soul Foundation has built restaurants, where those who need some grub but can't pay can sit and dine and then pay with their services as waiters, dish-washers, cooks, gardners and so on. Yes, his restaurant Hope is Delicious has a welcoming manicured lawn. And those who can afford to pay for their meal and wish to be generous, can pay some extra - that will go towards the food for those who would like to eat too but haven't got the dosh.
"It's a terrible stat, so many families with less than $24,000 for a family of four, they are under-fed, they need feeding too." This inspired rockstar is like the Pied Piper, his joyful example is inspiring. That is what more people with the means should do.
Jon Bon Jovi is busy with his music, and the love and human stories he soaks up on his rounds seem to shine in his songs. He is on the President's Advisory Council for Communities Re-building, and he is a great contributor in that role. Kicking off with doing up fifteen run-down houses, refurbishing them for people to live in, he has done much more. He is connected with the Habitat for Humanity Foundation as well. More power to Jon Bon Jovi and his music and his great humanitarian deeds.
