Jon Bon Jovi loves New Jersey!
It's his hometown, and his name is synonymous with the Garden State….
…Which is why we were so happy to hear that the singer and his band are donating a cool million dollars to NJ's Super Storm Sandy Relief fund!
Here's what the singer said during a press conference, which Governor Chris Christie attended as well:
“My being here is not political. It’s emotional.”
That literally gave us SHIVERS!!!
We know this is obviously a serious moment, but we honestly think those words can be the line to Bon Jovi's song!
Mr. Bon Jovi went on to say how he still has a ton of friends in New Jersey and wants to do anything he can to help out all the loved ones he knows here in the state by the sea.
“The unsung heroes are the volunteers who without notice helped house, feed, clothe and just comfort."
As hurricane season approaches - this money should go a long way to making a lot of houses affected by Hurricane Sandy fit for the new year.
Or at least that's the plan!
