In order to commemorate the death of “Fast & the Furious” star Paul Walker, proceeds from DVD sales of the most recent film in the franchise, “Fast & Furious 6,” will be donated to Reach Out WorldWide.
According to “The Hollywood Reporter,” Universal Pictures chairman Donna Langley explained that the proceeds will benefit the nonprofit organization Walker co-founded to help rebuilding efforts after natural disasters.
“With the passing of Paul, the world has lost a man who spent a great deal of his life in service to others. We share in the deep grief of his family, friends and the countless fans who love him,” she said. “We keep Pauls’ memory alive and honor his legacy through continued support of Reach Out WorldWide…”
Walker found the organization in the wake of the earthquake in Haiti in January 2010. His family has also asked that any gifts be made in the form of donations to Reach Out WorldWide.
At the time of his death, he was on a short holiday break from filming “Fast & Furious 7,” which will move forward with production.
