Keep the Faith" famously sang Jon Bon Jovi.

Now, Bon Jovi is part of a group of notables hoping that Pope Francis' visit to Philadelphia will be a catalyst for giving. The rocker appears in a video for the newly created "Francis Fund," which will be used to "meet concrete needs of people in the Philadelphia region and Camden who are struggling with hunger, homelessness, and poverty, in the spirit of Pope Francis’ own special compassion and concern for our poor sisters and brothers," according to the group's Web site.

Comedian Lily Tomlin, former Philly Mayor  Wilson Goode, Philly DJ Pierre Robert, and former Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell also appear in the video.
