And to let you know the names of the most famous musicians benefactors, we'll tell you about them in this article.

The kindest musician benefactors

Most artists, when they become famous, forget where they came from. Famous American rappers, most of whom come from the ghetto, don't hesitate to show off their cars, expensive clothes, and all sorts of things to show off their wealth. Few of them share their wealth with the needy and help their fans in any way.

The situation is a little different with musicians of the old school. They are adults, they made a lot of money, and they realized that the best thing you can do with your capital is to help those who have no opportunities to improve their lives: the seriously ill or people in third-world countries. Many people should look up to them. And just so you know the names of the most famous musicians who are philanthropists, we We will tell you about them in this article.

Jon Bon Jovi is a very interesting person - he is an idol of millions, a world star, but also a very pious and sensitive person. Even his most famous song ("Livin' on a prayer") is called "Livin' on a Prayer". He fits the image of a good Christian and helps everyone as much as he can.

Not many people know about his charitable activities. He has a network of free restaurants for the needy, by the way. He feeds those who have nothing to eat for free in his restaurants JBJ Soul Kitchen. There is one thing, though - those who have no problems with money can dine at the restaurant for a donation of $10, so that the needy can use the money to eat.

Bon Jovi's restaurants are very clean, and the menu is as good as a luxury establishment. Those who don't have money can eat for free if they work in the restaurant for an hour - you can help in the kitchen, clean the floors or do something else. For that, both the employee and his whole family will be fed. The restaurant also offers free cooking classes. And it's all funded by Jon Bon Jovi. It doesn't pay for the food, but it's there so people don't feel like beggars - they feel like they can earn their own bread:

"Our restaurants work to give visitors a chance to renew their faith in themselves. You don't come here with bitterness and resentment toward the world, thinking everyone owes you - you volunteer to help, because we need you, we need your participation," says Jon Bon Jovi.

And this musician helps those facing HIV infection. In 1992, he started the Anti-AIDS Foundation. The musician gives a lot of his personal money to support the development of means to fight the infection. He also supports those who are fighting the disease.

It is not difficult to guess why the musician decided to support such patients. In his youth, Sir Elton John himself was addicted to psychoactive substances. He was very addicted and only by a miracle did he manage to quit. After that, he decided to help other addicts, many of whom were also infected. In addition, Elton was not an ordinary addict, he was a homosexual, so he was in a high-risk zone.

He created the foundation after a close friend of Elton's, Ryan White, died of AIDS in 1990. Elton annually gathers charity events and donates all the money from the sale of singles to his foundation.



The frontman of Ireland's most popular rock band U2 became one of the first rockers actively involved in humanitarian work. The musician has been working for more than 20 years in the sphere of defending the interests of Third World citizens. He gives several concerts every year in support of human rights organizations.

His good works have not gone unnoticed. For his activities, Bono was awarded the title "Knight Commander of the Order of the British Empire" in 2007. However, they did not give him the title of "Sir", as Bono is not a British citizen. But this does not make him sad. After all, the musician did good deeds obviously not to be a "sir".

About McCartney's charity work, he himself tries not to say. Much of his charity work is deliberately hidden from public view. Still, good deeds are not done for gratitude.

He supports animal rights and environmental organizations and supports cancer research. In addition, Sir Paul has donated to at least 35 different charities. Sometimes it was thousands of euros, and sometimes it was all the proceeds from singles and even entire albums. And he has repeatedly performed for free, helping to raise billions for charity.
