Success hasn’t made Jon Bon Jovi forget where he grew up.  This week, the New Jersey native donated a million bucks for New Jersey’s Hurricane Sandy Relief Fund.

Prior to announcing his donation, Bon Jovi toured his hometown of Sayerville with Governer Chris Christie.  He met with residents to talk about the devastation unleashed by Sandy on the Jersey Shore last fall.  Bon Jovi said his motives came from his heart, not from a political point of view.

My being here is not political.  It’s emotional because I grew up here.  I went to school here. I met my wife here.  And in the days following the storm, when I visited these streets and spoke to the residents, one thought that came to me time and time again was what can I do?

According to CNN, the Governor said Bon Jovi and his wife are people who “never take New Jersey away from themselves.”  Mary Pat Christie, the Governor’s wife, said at the event that more than 38 million dollars has been raised so far.  Just like Bon Jovi’s song, “Who says you can’t go home?”
