Jon Bon Jovi has been named the first Founding Ambassador of the Habitat for Humanity Ambassador program.
The newly created Habitat for Humanity Ambassador Program has officially recruited Jon Bon Jovi as its first Founding Ambassador. The honor reportedly is given to the rocker mainly for his numerous efforts for Habit for Humanity International since the year of 2005.
"We couldn't be more pleased that Jon Bon Jovi has agreed to become the first Habitat for Humanity Ambassador," Habitat for Humanity International Chief Executive Officer Jonathan Reckford said. "Jon's shining example of advocating on behalf of people around the world who lack decent housing will help call others to action in this effort to eliminate substandard housing."
With the tapping, Jon Bon Jovi will surely become the first representative ever of the new collaboration between it and its related group, Hollywood for Habitat for Humanity. "As a Habitat for Humanity Ambassador," the singer said, "I now have the opportunity to help this work continue and I encourage others to become involved and share in the rebuilding of their communities as well."
