Paul Leonard Newman (January 26, 1925 – September 26, 2008) was an American actor, film director, entrepreneur, humanitarian and auto racing enthusiast. He won numerous awards, including an Academy Award, two Golden Globe Awards, a Screen Actors Guild Award, a Cannes Film Festival Award, and an Emmy award, along with many honorary awards. He also won several national championships as a driver in Sports Car Club of America road racing and his race teams won several championships in open wheel IndyCar racing.

Newman was a co-founder of Newman's Own, a food company from which Newman donated all profits and royalties to charity. As of May 2007, these donations had exceeded US$220 million.

On September 26, 2008, Newman died at his long-time home in Westport, Connecticut, of complications arising from cancer.

Dear Readers,

Paul Newman was such an incredible human being.

Married for fifty years to Joanne Woodward. In Holloywood, that's a miracle!

His charity work is awe inspiring and should be used as an example of how this can be done. Just the profits/royalties from every food product he sold added up to 250, 000,000 (most recent figure).

This guy raised 250 MILLION raised for charity.

One man.
