Paul Newman

Last night Paul Newman past away age the age of 83 after being diagnosed with cancer. Newman was known best for his work in classic movies like; "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof", "Cool Hand Luke", "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid", "The Sting", and his Oscar winning performance in "The Color of Money".

Yet, there are two aspect of his life that set Newman apart from the majority of movie stars.
1. His Marriage to actress Joanne Woodard. They had been married since 1958 and had three daughters together.
2. Newman's Owe. All the revenue (reported over $220 Million) from his product line has gone straight to charity, including his own Hole in the Wall Gang camp for seriously ill children.

Here is the statement from the Hole in the Wall Gang website.
