Original Cool Dude From Hollywood – Paul Newman
Something Outside of Workers Comp –
I always try to stay on point when posting about Workers Compensation Savings, but I wanted to post a tribute to the Original Cool Dude from Hollywood – Paul Newman. There is so much being written about him since his passing.
The reason he was so cool was not his movie roles, but what he did for charities. Paul Newman and the Newman’s Own Foundation donated all profits and royalties after taxes for educational and charitable purposes. Paul Newman and the Newman’s Own Foundation have given over $250 million to thousands of charities worldwide since l982. The Newman’s Own Foundation makes grants to charities within the United States and abroad.
The mark of a person is what they do for other people. Paul Newman was the platinum standard for what a famous person can do to benefit others. With all the greed we have seen on Wall Street over the last few weeks, it is refreshing to remember there are people doing good for others.
By the way, I also liked his role in Hud.
