Paul Walker’s Birthday to be Honored with Fundraiser


Paul Walker’s loved ones have launched a fundraising campaign for the late actor’s charity to mark his 41st birthday on Friday.

The Fast and Furious star died in a car crash last year 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 organization 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 Twitter on Monday, 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 honor Paul with us!”

The donation goal has been set at $1 million.

Walker died in November 2013 at the age of 40.
