Meadow Walker, the daughter of “Fast & Furious” actor Paul Walker–who died in a fiery crash two weeks ago–will continue her father’s charity
According to a report from Hollywood Life, the 15-year-old will keep his Reach Out WorldWide charity going to honor him.
“She’s already talking about how she wants to honor her dad by making sure that his charity keeps going,” a source told Hollywood Life. “That’s his legacy and the thing that he was most proud of, besides Meadow, so she’s really committed to making sure it lives on.”
Walker started the charity three years ago to help victims of natural disasters, including earthquakes and typhoons. Walker is said to have helped relief efforts after the massive earthquake struck Haiti in January 2010.
Walker, according to the charity’s website, “saw a gap between the availability of skilled resources and the requirement for such personnel in post-disaster situations.”
“Following the trip he contacted a group of his friends to assist him in forming ROWW with the purpose of filling this unmet need,” it reads.
His charity is currently doing relief work for people affected by the devastating typhoon that tore through the Philippines last month.
A source told HollywoodLife said that Meadow Walker is “heartbroken and grieving but she’s showing an incredible amount of strength.”
The source added, “Everyone is amazed by how strong she is. Her family is all focused on looking after her and protecting her, but she’s actually helping them. She has a very strong spirit, just like Paul, and it’s been a huge blessing for everyone to have her close.”
At the same time, as ShowbizSpy reported, she is staying off the Internet to keep away from rumors and pictures.
“She is staying off the Internet until things settle. She doesn’t want to come across any photos of her dad, or read any negative gossip,” a source was quoted as saying.
