jonbonJon Bon Jovi stands by his word to help out the people in his home state of New Jersey.

Yesterday he presented a $1 million check from his band to Governor Chris Christie to help fund New Jersey’s recovery efforts from Superstorm Sandy.

Bon Jovi says his presence there was not political, but emotional.

“I know that there are people that are still suffering.  But what I like to call the power of ‘we’ coming together — that means, you, me, us — we are taking a step today to rebuild lives.”

“This incredibly generous donation from Bon Jovi to the Hurricane Sandy New Jersey Relief Fund will go a long way in the rebuilding process,” said Christie.

“From day one, Jon has been one of the most visible faces for Sandy recovery here in his hometown of Sayreville and throughout the entire state.”

Jon Bon Jovi serves on the advisory board of the Hurricane Sandy New Jersey Relief Fund, along with Bruce Springsteen and U2′s Bono, as well as  other celebrities and executives.
