When Jon Bon Jovi returned home to New Jersey on Monday, he came bearing a very large gift.
The rocker presented the New Jersey Hurricane Sandy Relief Fund with a $1 million check, on behalf of himself, his wife and his band.
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, whose wife, Mary Pat, leads the fund, was also on hand to thank Bon Jovi for his contribution.
"I know that this million dollars sounds like a lot but it's really just a drop in the bucket," Bon Jovi, a native of Sayreville, New Jersey, said. "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?"
The answer to that has included visiting those in his hometown who are repairing their lives after last fall's devastating storm wreaked havoc along the East coast.
The relief fund, which counts Bon Jovi, Bono and Bruce Springsteen among its honorary board members, has raised more than $38 million since Sandy struck.
I love u Jon Bon Jovi, you are the best man ever...

Very nice of him too pitch in for some relief
I am so very impressed at this donation. Bon Jovi's music has not been on my radar of music but I am changing my mind. It seems to me, he is the real deal when I comes to giving back.
Thank you Bon Jovi! Obama talks a big game, but my Hoboken place was destroyed and FEMA won't rebuild because I didn't have flood insurance. And I'm union and voted Obama! The lesson is, don't trust FEMA to rebuild.
I'm still trying to auction my turds for relief fund donations. There's only one wierd guy named tracie who's made an offer, but it wasn't enough to help the people. I guess Ima have to try to sh!t a gold or silver turd.
