After Paul Newman's son Scott died of an overdose in 1978, he created the Scott Newman Center to educate children about the dangers of drugs. But the studly movie star-turned studly salad dressing-maker didn't stop there. Newman also donated 100 percent of the profits from his Newman's Own food line to charity. In 1988, he founded The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp in Connecticut. The program was designed as a summer camp for handicapped or terminally ill children kids who otherwise would have never been able to go to camp. There are now nearly a dozen such camps around the world.
