Paul Newman & Father Dom

Paul Newman & Father Dom

The above photo is of Father Dom and Paul Newman.

Father Dom volunteers at The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp. There Fr. Dom met Paul Newman (founder) and the two became friends . As you know Paul Newman has his own range of good stuff Newmans Own and so he offered Fr. Dom help with the marketing.

Originally Fr. Dom wanted to see if they could bring it under the Newmans Own brand, but the marketing people said…we dont want to mix food and compost. Fr. Dom thought that was the end of that until he got a call from the Manager of Newman’s Own who had received a fax from Paul Newman. He warned Fr. Dom that it was bit rude…..Fr. Dom told him that he had probably heard it all before and to go ahead - it said, ‘Dear Tom, Help Fr. Dom with his shit, Paul’. Classic.

So the similarity between Fr. Dom’s packaging and Newmans Own…no coincidence.
