Paul Newman, 1925 - 2008

On Friday, September 26, legendary actor, car racer and philanthropist Paul Newman lost his battle with cancer. As we have mentioned in this blog before, we admire Paul Newman for his philanthropic endeavors. We are hopeful that people wanting to commemorate Newman’s passing will do so by donating either to The Hole in the Wall Gang Fund, by following the directions on the organization's website, or one of the cancer charities rated highly by Charity Navigator.

As a 501 (c) (3) organization itself, Charity Navigator depends on public support to help donors make informed choices. Please consider investing in the future of Charity Navigator by making a donation today.  Donate now >>

it's hard not to admire Paul Newman for putting his money to work in such productive ways, such as his Newman's Own line--high quality stuff and the proceeds go to good causes... very smart.
