The death of Christian actor Paul Walker left many of his projects and films unfinished. However, the fallen actor's legacy will continue to live through his charity, ROWW (Reach Out Worldwide), thanks to his younger brother, Cody Walker.

The 25-year-old younger brother of the late "Fast & Furious" star has officially taken over his brother's duty as the head manager of ROWW, and issued the announcement via his brand new Instagram account.

"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." wrote Cody on his account, captioned underneath a photo with his brothers. "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."

Walker first founded ROWW in 2010 following the earthquakes in Haiti. Since then, the non-profit organization has provided relief efforts through around the world that have been affected by natural disasters. Walker and ROWW have assisted in many disasters such as the Oklahoma tornadoes, Indonesian tsunami, Philippine typhoons amongst others.

The 40-year-old actor and founder passed away on Saturday, November 30 alongside friend and financial advisor Roger Rodas. Following ROWW's charity toy drive, Walker and Rodas were both killed in a single, fiery car crash with speed being reported as an indicator.

Walker, who was raised in a Mormon household, expressed his Christian views publically over the span of his career. "I'm a Christian now," expressed the late actor. "I go surfing and snowboarding and I'm always around nature. I look at everything and think, 'Who couldn't believe there's a God? Is all this a mistake?' It just blows me away."

Walker was also in the middle of shooting "Fast & Furious 7," which was halted immediately following the news of his death, but has since been pushed back to April 2015 to alter the storyline. Rumors have been circulating that Cody would serve as his brother's stand-in to complete filming.

Despite no official word on the film, Cody Walker will step in to honor his brother's true passion for charity. "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."
