Paul Walker’s brother Cody Walker has vowed to carry on his deceased brother’s charity work.

Paul founded Reach Out WorldWide with his friend and business partner Roger Rodas, who died with him on November 30 in a car crash.

The charity specialized in sending small but highly mobile teams to disaster areas to help clean-up. A team was recently sent to the Philippines in the wake of Typhoon Yolanda.

Cody said in a Instagram post that he and the rest of the family appreciate the support they’ve received during the difficult time following Paul’s death.

“One of the many things I admired about my brother was his genuine desire to help others in need,” Cody said. “As many of you know, in 2010 @paulwalker founded @reachoutww, a disaster relief organization. It is with great honor that I have decided to join the ROWW team as Brand Manager.”

He added, “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.”

Cody also said in another post that he and his friend Scott Eastwood attended a celebrity high-stakes poker tournament at the Sundance Film Festival, and that the proceeds went to Reach Out Worldwide.

Cody has notably not said anything in public about Paul’s death, before this post.

Paul’s younger brother has been linked to the Fast and Furious 7 film, but he hasn’t commented on his possible role yet.
