The Goodness of Giving

The Goodness of Giving

Selflessness doesn’t just benefit recipients, but those on the giving side of the
equation, too. The bonus: There are so many ways to give, whether you are being
charitable with your money, time or love. Here’s what science says about
altruism and how it enhances all our lives.

By Allan Richter

November 2008

After the last bit of crumpled gift wrap is discarded this holiday season, the loved ones you’ve bought gifts for will very likely remember your kindness. But that warm feel-good emotion behind your generosity isn’t just a boon to the people on the receiving end—it turns out altruism is good for the giver, too.

Consider Eleanor Nwadinobi, MD, who gave up a lucrative medical practice in England and moved to Nigeria to teach poor rural women how to gather,
prepare and store nutritious foods. “That feeling of touching lives is exhilarating,” Nwadinobi says, punctuating her conversation with giggles in a telephone interview from Venice, Italy, where she was attending an anti-poverty conference. “It’s rejuvenating. There’s just that spring in your step.”

Paul Newman: A Life Well Lived

“I wanted to acknowledge luck,” Paul Newman once said of his charitable work—“the chance and benevolence of it in my life, and the brutality of it in the lives of others, who might not be allowed the good fortune of a lifetime to correct it.”

When Newman died in September at age 83, he left more than a half-century of film work, much of it in memorable movies like “Hud” and “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid.” But his legacy is at least as notable for the philanthropy that also survives him—he once joked that his salad dressing was outgrossing his films.

The actor’s 25-year-old Newman’s Own food company, which features all-
natural and organic products, has racked up more than $250 million in sales. In 1988, six years after launching Newman’s Own, he started his Hole in the Wall camps for terminally ill children.

Newman made arrangements to have his charities continue their work after his death. In addition, his wife, actress Joanne Woodward, and daughters are involved with his foundation.

Nutrition and health were themes of Newman’s philanthropy that stretched across the US and overseas. Among the charities and causes that received Newman’s Own proceeds are Safe Water Network, which Newman helped launch to provide safe drinking water to deprived communities in places like India and Africa.

Closer to home, Newman’s Own has partnered with Ford to put trucks on the road to deliver otherwise cost-prohibitive fruits, vegetables and other fresh and nutritious food to low-income families.

Newman’s reputation was one of a low-key and dignified actor with greater pursuits than filling movie theaters. He lived in Westport, Connecticut, far from the film industry’s Hollywood epicenter. But giving, as the motto of Newman’s Own makes clear, was one area in which Newman didn’t shy away from his high ...
