Jon bon jovi decided to give some of his savings to honor the signer of the declaration of Independence. The New Jersey rocker donated $5,000 to help restore his gravesite in Philadelphia.

The goal have it fixed by April, the anniversary of Franklin and death. Thank you, Jon bon jovi. He's terrific. So generous. Very charitable. Also in "Pop news" this morning, one teen from Phoenix, Arizona, is getting into the Thanksgiving spirit a little early thanks to a welcoming grandmother. Jamal thinton was looped into a group text unexpectedly from a group text claiming to be his grandmother with Amanda and Justin. Those are not his actual family. Jamal slightly confused and asked for a picture though after sending a selfie of herself Jamal broke the news you're not my grandmother along the crying laughing emoji and added can I still get a plate though to which Wanda replied, of course, you can join. That's what grandmas do, feed everyone. And that is what Thanksgiving is all about. And literally Amanda and Justin are -- have contacted Jamal and they're all planning on Thanksgiving dinner.
