The dream of saving the endangered species, to save the oceans, the passion to help people and his ultimate passion for spontaneous goodwill, all these things are what keeps her motivated to follow his footsteps, she said. She further added that she wanted to start the Paul Walker Foundation in order to share that ‘passionate’ side of him to the world. A tear rolled from her left eye when she said that she found no better way to honour her father and she will continue his legacy of helping others.
At present, the Paul Walker foundation is working in collaboration with Monterey Bay Aquarium, to find teenagers who are passionate about preserving the nature, particularly the oceans, and to provide them with scholarships in order to motivate them further. The foundation is also working hand in hand with the Ocean Futures Society founded by Michael Cousteau who is among the most famous ocean leaders and the son of the extremely popular ocean explorer, Jacques Cousteau.
Paul Walker may be dead, but he is there in the hearts of the fans and the people who benefitted from his endeavours. Go Paul!
