We could ALL stand to learn a lesson or two from the incredibly cool, incredibly gifted, and incredibly charitable Paul Newman, who passed away last night at the age of 83. Please take the time to watch the following four-minute video and take away some impression or thought that you’ll then turn around and use in your life–TODAY!
RIP, Paul Newman, and thank you for ALL you have given us via your acting, but most especially through the various charitable acts and organization, Newman’s Own, which has benefited countless individuals AND animals.
“What could be better than to hold your hand out to people who are less fortunate than you? That’s simply how I look at it.” ~Paul Newman
