JBJ in Forbes

Jon Bon Jovi exemplifies a spirit of American philanthropy that has its roots in the so-called mutual aid societies, which sprang up in the late 19th and early 20th centuries and helped people get back on their feet by applying very personal, individualistic approaches. That’s why Jon Bon Jovi is a powerful model for doing good professionally, personally and philanthropically.

Absolutely fantastic interview. My admiration for both his generosity and his business/management savvy went up a notch after seeing this.

He is an inspiration for philanthropy. It's why I'm giving 1/3 of my profit from the perfume he's doing with Avon to charity. Yep, it costs $30 and I'm giving $5 from every bottle to a local charity that has no admin overhead. Anyone that wants to help me, it'll be available online October 14th...www.youravon.com/delyard. Yes, I'm trying to sell it...I want to help them as much as possible AND win the trip to Vegas to see Jon in a private show with 2400 other Avon reps. Can you blame me?
