Paul Newman appreciation

Recommended Posts

I know in my David Bowie thread I said that I wished Bowie were my father.

But I've changed my mind.

I wish Paul Newman was my father.

 

He did so many great things in his life.

Beyond acting in a long list of superb movies, he also has a full line of delicious foods that give to charity, he founded a camp for sick children, raced cars, and just was a really good dude.

The camp he founded.

One day I want to volunteer some time at this place.

the hole in the wall camp i think is in connecticut, and they're more than happy to let people volunteer! he's made a lot of kids' lives better, and given joy to some kids that more than likely weren't going to have many more. i have monumental amounts of respect for him just for how he's spent his money he's gained on acting rather than his acting itself.

I have just watched a tv report on ramusa.org .

 

It's good to see famous people using their celebrity for a good thing.

According to the package of cookies I have in the kitchen, he has given over $200million to charities through the profits of his food line since 1988.

That is amazing.

 

I looked into the camp he founded and when I get back to the states, I am going to volunteer.

There are actually quite a few of them now, and even ones in other countries...just not one in Germany.

But there is one in the UK and one in Ireland...so I might be able to work and save up money and take a vacation to volunteer at one of those for a few weeks or so.

Paul Newman was a super rad dude, for all of the reasons listed above. Massive respect.

 

Newman-Os are nowhere near as good as oreos, but I'm not going to hold that against him.

Yeah, but Oreos don't come in a ginger variety, so they lose.

Plus, I bet the dude responsible for Oreos wouldn't help a old lady cross a busy street.
