To some, Paul Newman is an actor who was once in a movie with Tom Cruise (The Color of Money). But to millions of people around the world, Newman is a cultural icon, and a one-of-a-kind humanitarian.

Even though Newman left this earth in 2008, his non-profit organization Newman’s Own carries on. Recently it announced that it has given more than 300 million dollars since its founding in 1982. That’s some serious giving!

Tons of charities have benefited from Newman’s Own, including the Natural Resources Defense Council and Safe Water Network.

Safe Water Network’s CEO Kurt Soderlund states that Newman, “helped inspire a collective effort to develop new approaches to delivering safe water to the world’s poor.”

Although I’ll never have the chance to meet this great giver— nor will I probably ever get to see my fantasy remake of his Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid starring Daniel Craig and Brad Pitt— I hope to  live through his company’s motto “Shameless exploitation in pursuit of the Common Good.” How about you? (Wouldn’t that film be amazing, though?)
