Paul Newman, the Philanthropist

Philanthropists give me hope for us as a species.

These are the wonderful people who make an enormous amount of money and then choose to give it away, or at least share a great deal of with those in need.

Perhaps it was a direct result of the fact that we had some of his pasta sauce for dinner last night, that Paul Newman’s name immediately came to my mind for a post on Philanthropists.

This son of Jewish Hungarian/ Polish immigrants would become one of the most beloved and well-known celebrities of his time.

Sadly, Paul has left us now, but his great work and generous donations live on through his Global Organization, Newman’s Own, and this franchise, ” as of 2013, has donated in excess of $380 Million ”   –  Wikipedia

This movie star, actor, race car driver and political activist attracted legions of admirers all of his life, but he is dearest to my heart primarily because of his great concern and compassion for so many others, all of his life.

It doesn’t hurt that he is also a fellow Buckeye!

Paul’s life was full and rich and filled to the brim with accolades for films and racing, but to me, it was what he did away from the glitz of Fame, that made him such a remarkable human being.

A true mark of his infinite wisdom and great class, was in his choosing and remaining married to his beautiful wife, the quite talented actress Joanne Woodward for 50 years.

Newman, who was well-known for his quick wit and clever humor, never avoided sharing advice laced with humor, as with this great line about marital fidelity:
” Why go out for a hamburger when you have steak at home? ” –  Wikipedia

He did indeed have steak at home and it was Filet Mignon in my opinion.

Newman’s Own began in 1982 with writer, partner E. A. Hotchner and the extensive list of products that they now produce includes, everything from pasta sauce to pet food, as is aptly demonstrated with the newest Newman Company Branch that  includes Organics like,  pet products, snacks and coffee.

Newman’s name can now be found on everything from popcorn, to pet food and pizzas.

I am a great supporter of the Organic arm of his Company and we have tried many of the products and like the fact that with every purchase,  we are helping someone, somewhere.

The one common ingredient in all of the products that the Newman Companies provide and produce is: quality.

Aside from the multitude of great food products, this warm and generous soul began in 1988, a wonderful place for kids with serious illnesses with his “Hole in the Wall Gang  Camps.

Although for millions around the world, Paul Newman will always be remembered as the quintessential, glamorous and exciting, movie star/actor, to me, he was much, much more, he was Paul Newman, the Philanthropist.

Our  sweet Breanna  with her Santa Moose~

 

Beginning this Organic Blog has introduced us to a new world of healthy foods and next we want to be sure that Breanna is eating Organic as well.

We have been feeding her what we considered to be a wonderful diet, for the past three years that she has been with us, but now we are about to go in search of a new Organic food for her.

We know about all of the reasons that she should be eating Organic, but were not aware before, that it existed.

Now that we do, the hunt is on for the best one.

She has been eating Wellness Core Ocean since she turned one year old, it was suggested by the maker, that we wait until then to switch her off of her Wellness Puppy food and we did.

She has loved this food and the rest of her diet, so why change now?

A very simple reason, we do not want ANY chemicals or pesticides in her food.

One of the things that disturbed me the most when I first began searching for her food, was the fact that too many companies were using  Ethoxyquin  as a preservative, which is a known pesticide produced by guess who, Monsanto, of course.

This was the beginning of my hostility towards this Company and it has only deteriorated since.

This search is going to take time, as there are now, unlike three years ago, quite a few makers of Organic Dog Food.

The list of those in contention includes the following:

Newman’s Own, Blue Wilderness, Natural Planet Organics, Castor & Pollux Organix, Taste of the Wild, Natura Karma, Pet Guard, Royal Canin, Merrick, Canidae and Wellness.

If you have personal favorites, please tell us about them.

More will be added here as they are discovered and the final choice will be posted when it is decided upon.

Stay tuned dear Readers~
