Paul Newman on Salad Dressing, Goodness, and Giving

Hollywood icon and passionate philanthropist Paul Newman sadly passed away on Friday. He is a role model for anyone inspired by giving, and he used his fame and good taste to build his successful nonprofit, the Newman's Own Foundation. He was involved in every aspect of the business, from writing the legends on the back of his salad dressing bottles to hanging out with the kids at Hole in the Wall Camps. Here is Paul talking about his vision for the common good and how he came up with his concept for a food-based nonprofit.

ilanac13, I agree that's what's special about Newman's Own. It's very unassuming (except for the cute Newman sketch in the Renaissance outfit, ha!), and they are products that everyone buys, regardless of who is promoting them. Even if you didn't know who Paul Newman was (which is unlikely anyways) or what Newman's Own's profits go towards, you'd buy it anyways and inadvertently contribute anyways. It's not like you have to go out of your way to help out.

he's certainly someone that's going to be missed - but as we all can see, he left a legacy that really teaches you something. he's one of the first actors who was able to use his celebrity for good, and branded himself in a way that was unique and made an impact to the community.

I love what he did with Newman's Own, it set such an incredible example for others to follow. I'm looking forward to Nell Newman continuing the good work.

I am eating Newman's Own balsamic vinaigrette right now. Aside from it being the best salad dressing in the whole world, I love the meaning behind it.
