Paul Newman: Since 1982, this actor's charity foundation established with Newman's Own food products has raised over $150 million for causes that benefit this planet and its citizens. That's close to $7 million a year, a hefty amount of pocket change for anybody who doesn't have Bill Gates' resources. The AP reported today that Newman sent a personal check recently to the Community Council of Franklin, Kansas to help the community recover from the extensive damage caused by a tornado in early May. An exact amount was not mentioned, but the AP did refer to the gift from the heart as being "generous." The actor, his actress wife, Joanne Woodward, and all of the people who work with Newman's Own deserve credit for making a difference in such a positive way.
