With a $1 mio donation towards her Hurricane Katrina relief effort
Rocker JON BON JOVI left talk show queen OPRAH WINFREY speechless on her US daytime programme yesterday (21SEP05), when he gave her $1 million (GBP555,000) towards her Hurricane Katrina relief effort.
Bon Jovi and his bandmates were stunned by Winfrey's emotional two-day TV special from Louisiana and Mississippi last week, and her efforts to get supplies to the victims of the hurricane through her Angel Network charity.
So they joined forces to give Oprah the biggest single donation to her cause - so she could continue to help those suffering in the aftermath of the August (05) storm.
Bon Jovi, who was a guest on Oprah's show, explained, "You could steward this so that it gets to the people who need it - Habitat, Red Cross... That's from the four of us.
"You told the human story. This isn't a race issue, it's a class issue and it's American people that we have to help."
Thrilled Oprah took a moment to regain her composure and then said, "I've been doing this a long time and people have made donations and they've been very kind, but no one has ever given our Angel Network $1 million."
