For those of us who are inspired by Paul Newman and who have been lucky enough to work in an organisation he has helped to set up the news coming from Fox News is another astounding sign of the mans greatness and at the same time the news in tinged with sadness.
Fox report that:
Movie star Paul Newman has quietly turned over the entire value of his ownership in Newman’s Own — the company that makes salad dressing and cookies — to charity.
The value of handing this ownership over is worth $120 million. The news of this has broken at the same time that reports of the actor being ill has also come to light, but it should be noted that the two were unrelated, and the process had begun 2 years ago.
Newman’s Own is the best example I can think of when I think of companies that are set up ethically and are in business for the benefit of others.
