    SINATRA, the philanthropist..

    It is rumored that Frank Sinatra gifted a billion dollars over his life time through gifts, charity performances, etc.

    I believe it, too.

    What's more impressive is he did it without boast or aggrandizement.

    He was one of the century's most prolific humanitarians.

    Thanks for the list, June.

    Thumbs up Beautiful, June - thanks!

    "By their works shall ye know them."

    When Nancy was promoting "My Father", a reporter asked her what FS didn't want in the book. She answered that it was his charity work. The heart and soul of generosity...

    I don't want to believe we'll never see his likes again, but the years ARE slipping away and the Frank Sinatra void sadly remains unfilled, does'nt it?

    A Prince of a Man indeed.

    Thumbs up Rick, you're right

    Unfortunately, I don't think we will see the likes of him again. Fortunately, we have a rich body of work to remind us of just how special he was.

    Talking Frank was a true humanitarian and a very wonderful person!

    Hello to all,

    What a list, June! Some very worthy causes and organizations that are dedicated to helping people. I'm not surprised at the length of the list. Frank was a real human being! Very genuine and warm and generous. Such a humanitarian. Unselfishly giving of himself. It's people like Frank who make this world wonderful!

    P.S. Bobbysoxer, your idea of giving something to the Sinatra School of the Arts is a wonderful way to pay respect and show gratitude to the vocalist we all adore so much!

    June, thanks for compiling and posting that list - it gives an idea of how many charities and good-works Sinatra supported quietly but steadily over the years. It is indeed very important to remember this today, and to keep in mind whenever we make donations that such donations could be combined to our love for Sinatra music, hence could be made for those charity spots he supported while still around.

    A "dream castle" of mine would be to witness the inauguration of a pay-per-download-Sinatra site where perhaps all the tracks still buried in the vaults, the alt takes etc etc, even "really new concerts" etc, could be available for fans while all the $$$ coming in from the downloaders would go to some of Frank's favorite charities. That would really be something, and in my opinion, it would enhance an essential part of Sinatra's legacy while keeping the flame music-wise at the same time.

    Bernhard.

    Response to Ron - roses for the Central Park Jogger

    Ron,

    I had no idea that the Central Park Jogger received a box of beautiful roses from Frank when she was in the hospital. That is a terribly thoughtful gesture. Frank had a heart of pure gold. He was warm, enormously kind, and there seemed to be no end to his generosity. What an exceptional person he was! I have the very, very deepest admiration for Frank. Thank you very much, Ron, for mentioning this. It is very thoughtful of you to do so. Enjoy the rest of your evening, and I hope you have a very nice day tomorrow!
