The Walker's family issued an offical statement via Paul's Facebook page.
"Paul Walker's family appreciates the outpouring of love and goodwill from his many fans and friends. They have asked, in lieu of flowers or other gifts, that donations please be made to Paul's charity Reach Out Worldwide (ROWW). Donations can easily be made through their website at http://www.ROWW.org/.
Its comforting for them to know that the son, brother, and father they love so much is equally adored, respected, and appreciated by so many. Paul founded the organization with the genuine desire to help others, and it's important to his family to keep his memory alive through ROWW."
"Paul wasn't someone who would just write a check and lend his name to an organization; he was the heart and soul of Reach Out WorldWide. Paul was the first one in and the last one out, he led by example and his hard work and dedication inspired everyone who had the privilege of working with him....Some people play a hero, Paul was a hero. Paul was an honorable, hardworking, dedicated, respectful man with a humble spirit who shared his blessings with those who needed it most." JD Dorfman, operations manager of ROWW wrote.
Universal Pictures has also reportedly decided to honor Paul Walker by donating part of the proceeds from the DVD sales of "Fast & Furious 6" to Reach Out Worldwide.
"With the passing of Paul, the world has lost a man who spent a great deal of his life in service to others," Universal chairman Donna Langley said in a statement.
Walker had just left a Reach Out Worldwide benefit supporting victims of the Philippines' Typhoon Haiyan on Saturday when he and business partner Roger Rodas were killed after the Porsche they were driving in went off the road and hit a tree
Details for Walker's memorial service are not yet announced.
