Dvd - Fast & Furious 6 Dvd Proceeds To Benefit Tragic Star Paul Walker's Charity

A portion of the proceeds of Dvd sales of Fast & Furious 6 will be donated to tragic star Paul Walker's Reach Out WorldWide charity.

The movie star was getting ready to promote the release next week (10Dec13) when he was killed in a car accident on Saturday (30Nov13) in California.

He had just wrapped up a Reach Out WorldWide charity event in Santa Clarita when the crash took place.

The non-profit supports professionals with first responder skills who leap into action when natural disasters strike.

Walker founded the charity after the Haiti earthquake in 2010.

Announcing the cash injection on Tuesday (03Dec13), Universal Pictures chairman Donna Langley says, "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.

"We keep Paul’s memory alive and honor his legacy through continued support of Reach Out WorldWide, the non-profit he founded to give hope to those who must rebuild after they have experienced natural disasters."

Meanwhile, Walker's Fast & Furious 6 co-star Dwayne Johnson has poured out his heart about his friend's death in a new Ew.com interview.

The former wrestler reveals he and Walker bonded over their connections as fathers to daughters on the set.

He says, "He was motivated by work that allowed him to take care of his family, number one, and that also allowed him the power and the leverage to help people in need and in crisis.

"When I first met Paul, I think in our late 20s, we were young kids in the business. Then, years later, when I did Fast Five, we had an opportunity to spend a lot of time together and become reacquainted. At that time, we had both been in the business... for over a decade, and the most important thing that we had in common was the importance of family time and being a great father to our daughters. We bonded over that."

Walker leaves behind his 15-year-old daughter and Johnson has a 12 year old, called Simone, with ex-wife Dany Garcia.

The actor adds, "It was always the number one topic we would talk about. We would talk about silly guy things, his fast cars and my pickup trucks, or we would talk about the beautiful energy of Hawaii - but it always ultimately came back to family, and very specifically, the beautiful and important bond between a father and his daughter, and how we both realised that over the years."
