Paul Walker’s birthday to be marked with fundraiser

The Fast and Furious star died in a car crash last year (13) and his friends and family have decided to mark the first birthday since the fatal accident by raising money for Reach Out World Wide (ROWW), the non-profit organisation Walker created.

His friend Jesse Brisendine writes on the online fundraising page, “What Paul was most proud of were: his daughter Meadow and Reach Out World Wide. Paul and I used to talk about what ROWW could be become by the time we were old men sitting around in our rocking chairs. Paul never got to make it to that rocking chair as his life was tragically cut far too short.

“I can tell you that Paul’s dream for ROWW was that it would continue to grow and continue to be able to help people all over the world long after he was gone. I would do anything to bring my friend back, but unfortunately life does not work that way. What I can do though is to help ensure that my friend’s dream is realised and thus his legacy lives on forever. By donating to ROWW you are not only helping millions of people from all over the world in their times of need, you are also helping to keep Paul’s dream alive and ensuring his legacy lives on.”

Walker’s friend and movie co-star Jordana Brewster also shared the news on on Monday (08Sep14), writing, “I lost my dear friend Paul late last year. This Friday is his birthday and to honour him and help keep his legacy alive a fundraiser has been organised to raise one million dollars for his charity Reach Out World Worldwide. Please honour Paul with us!”

The donation goal has been set at £588,000.

Walker died in November (13) at the age of 40.

Cody Walker on Facebook and Joins ROWW

I personally had seen one fake account posing as Cody asking for “Likes” on all his posts, and that just disgusted me.

Well, in case you didn’t already know, Cody Walker, Paul’s brother, now has an official Facebook page (here) and has also joined Reach Out Worldwide (ROWW). Here’s an article:

Form by Paul Walker in 2010, Reach Out Worldwide aim to provide quick-response, mobile first aid services in rescue and recovery after major natural disasters around the globe.

On January 21st, Cody Walker has published a statement on behalf of the Walker Family, addressing his decision to serve the organisation as the brand manager:

“My family and I truly appreciate the support we have received during this difficult time. One of the many things I admired about my brother was his genuine desire to help others in need.

As many of you know, in 2010 Paul Walker founded Reach Out Worldwide, a disaster relief organization. It is with great honor that I have decided to join the ROWW team as Brand Manager. I look forward to working with like-minded individuals and partners to ensure ROWW continues to aid those in need in the years to come.

As Paul would say ‘when you put good will out there, it’s amazing what can be accomplished.’ We can all make a difference in this world and I am honored to join the ROWW team in fulfilling my brother’s legacy and ensure that the good my brother did lives on.”

The ROWW team has recently been deployed to Philippines to support the Typhoon Haiyan’s victims and despatched its second team for the EF4 Tornado in Illinois, Washington. In the past charity work, Paul Walker, along with all the ROWW team members aimed to aid the needy without attracting media attention – which was widely commended by the fans.
