Paul Walker’s daughter makes a special announcement on his birthday


This week actor Paul Walker would have been celebrating his 42 birthday.

To mark the day, his daughter Meadow, 16, shared a very photo of her and her father on Instagram. Her heartfelt tribute was also her way of giving him a special gift.

She announced that she had founded the Paul Walker Foundation. The foundation aims to protect oceans and wildlife and provide grants and scholarships to marine science students and researchers.

"I wanted to start this foundation because I want to share that piece of him with others. I want to share that piece of him with the world."


"I am tremendously proud to be launching the Paul Walker Foundation on his birthday. I can't think of a better way to celebrate my father.”

Since his death in 2013, Meadow has made numerous sweet tributes to him online. The Fast & Furious actor was best known for his career in Hollywood but, as the foundation’s website says “he was also passionate about the ocean.”

The mission statement of the foundation is simply to “DO GOOD.”

“The foundation is passing the torch to Meadow as we are all inspired to live like Paul, full of heart, character and spontaneous acts of goodwill that will be impactful beyond our years."
