In a special interview with CNN‘s, The Lead with Jake Tapper, the star of hit singles Born To Be My Baby and Bed of Roses, shared why Jon Bon Jovi Soul Foundation took the step.
Oftentimes, they’re [veterans] left to deal with PTSD [post-traumatic stress disorder] and the issue of coming back to the workplace after leaving the battlefield … Life as you knew it is going to be different, and sometimes, people need that extra help.
Moreover, the Jon Bon Jovi Foundation partners up with Help USA. It will provide help to homeless veterans.
JBJ Soul Foundation joined HELP USA, the City of D.C., and other partners on May 25th in a ceremonial groundbreaking of the Walter Reed Project in Washington, D.C. We are proud to support the 77 units of “services-enriched” affordable housing for homeless Veterans. HELP USA will provide social and supportive services to the residents.
The New Single Is Out!
The launch of the new song Unbroken, sees Jon Bon Jovi honor the homeless veterans.
Our new song, Unbroken, was written for the documentary “To Be of Service,” about the lives of veterans and their service dogs.
According to Bon Jovi, all proceeds from downloads of the song would benefit the Patriotic Service Dog Foundation. This is for the coming year. The non-profit organization connects veterans and first responders with service dogs at no cost.
