Jon Bon Jovi opens third ‘pay it forward’ restaurant for students

By: - 01/13/2020

WE heard of international celebrities living the good life, buying huge houses, owning estates in various countries and living the high life we always dreamed off, but not all are focused on material possessions, as proven by rock star Jon Bon Jovi.

Sa suggestion ng kanyang asawa, itinayo ni Bon Jovi ang JBJ Soul Kitchen, isang restaurant na may kakaibang paraan ng pagbabayad.

Wala kasing presyo ang mga pagkain nila sa menu but they device a pay it forward system instead. Bibigyan ka nila ng choice na magdonate ng minumum of $20 (P1000) or more na enough para magbayad sa pagkain ng iba, OR mag-vovolunteer ka ng one hour or more sa restaurant bilang server o tagahugas ng pingan.

Katumbas ito ng isang three-course meal. Ayon sa interview nya sa CBS Sunday Morning, halos lahat ng kanilang pagkain ay organic at galing sa donations.

Bon Jovi started this projected way back in 2011 at ngayon ay magbubukas na sila  ng ikatlong restaurant sa Jan 23 sa Rutgers-Newark University in Newark, New Jersey.

When asked kung bakit nila naisip na magbukas ng branch sa isang university, binanggit nya na madalas na kumain ng mga ramen noodles ang mga university students dahil sa gastos sa pag-aaral.

“We think it’s a right of passage to study hard and eat ramen noodles, how about if it’s the only thing you can afford?”

Jon Bon Jovi has been listed by Forbes as one of the 25 highest paid musicians and has a net worth of an estimated $410 million.
