Maybe cuz he was local to where I live we heard and saw more about him. But yeah the Newmans Own was a not for profit bussiness. Once a year him and his partner/neighbor would grab a bottle of booze and decide who to donate the money to. He also opened the "Hole in the wall gang" camps for sick kids http://www5.holeinthewallgang.org/.

Theres a story of this kid who wanted to go to one of the camps but needed equipment the hospital would not let leave the premises. Newman asked the hospital where he could buy the stuff and did so the kid could go to the camp
