New York-based research company General Sentiment released a report last year that listed the percentages of celebrities’ earnings that were donated to- or used for charitable work. The report was published by Forbes and the results are fascinating. Here’s a list of the most generous celebrities and how they contribute to helping the world.
#1 Bon Jovi
Total Publicity Value: $21,841,448
Cause: Soul Kitchen
“Our vision here at Soul Kitchen is to serve healthy, delicious, and when possible, organic meals. At Soul Kitchen you will notice there are no prices on the menu and you might have been seated with someone you don’t know. Customers pay the minimum donation or volunteer in some way to earn a dining certificate for a meal.”
That’s the official description of 80s rock legend Bon Jovi’s pay-what-you-what restaurant. The kitchen has helped many a hungry soul who would otherwise not be able to afford a good hot meal, while at the same time giving people a chance to donate larger amounts and keep the restaurant going.
