  • paulwalkerDecember 7, 2013 was a perfect day to be remember­ing the late actor Paul Walker- -philanthropist, friend, brother and father. The Vancouver sun was diamond bright across the crystal blue winter sky—and over 500 “Fast and Furious” movie fans and car enthusi­asts got together to celebrate the brilliant spirit of a human being who touched many lives with his quiet, but powerful kindness.

    On November 30, 2013, Walker and his friend Roger Rodas attended a charity car show, hosted by his chari-table foundation, Reach Out World- Wide (ROWW), before he and Rodas lost their lives by a trag­ic car accident. Walker was fundraising for the victims of Typhoon Haiyan that ravaged the Philippines on November 8, 2013.

    Lorenzo Garcia, a Filipino-Canadian teen, was so moved by Walker’s untimely passing that he organized a Paul Walk­er and Roger Rodas car cruise charity in honour of his favou­rite actor and fellow car enthu­siast. A total of $2,300 was raised (which includes the sale of Paul Walker Tribute stickers by N-Motion) and the Canadian Red Cross will be matching the amount dollar for dollar. Garcia’s tenacity and generosity mirrors the actions of Paul Walker, who founded the foundation ROWW: “When you put good will out there, it’s amazing what can be accomplished”.

    Reach Out WorldWide sent a team of trained medical profes­sionals and first responders to the remote area of BayBay in the island of Leyte. One of the hard­est hit areas by Typhoon Haiyan. ROWW has also initiated a deployment with Waves For Water to provide approximately 20,000 people access to clean water. Waves for Water is a charitable foundation with a mission: “To get clean water to every single person who needs it”.

    Paul Walker will be best re­membered for his role as Brian O’Connor in the Fast and Fu­rious blockbuster franchise. However, he will also be re­membered as someone who had a zest for life and a passion for helping others.
