It's never nice to hear about a beloved public figure passing away, but for those of us who grew up with the Fast and the Furious movies, the news of star Paul Walker's untimely death in 2013 hit particularly hard.

Fans all over the world were left reeling when it was announced that Walker had died of multiple trauma and severe burns as the result of a car accident in California, but even in death the actor is still managing to do some good.

Tech giant Microsoft has unveiled a custom designed Xbox One S, which Walker fans will be familiar with immediately.

The console features green and blue colouring reminiscent of Walker's car in the first film and has been signed by Vin Diesel, Tyrese Gibson, Cody Walker, the brother of Paul Walker, and many more.

So proud of Cody Walker... This custom made Xbox 1S will be auctioned on Oct 1st, at Game4Paul3. #ROWW

But it's more than just touching piece of memorabilia; the console will be raffled off with all money raised going to Reach Out Worldwide, a non-profit disaster relief organisation founded by Paul Walker himself.

Writing on the organisations blog, Walker said: "We're only on the earth for a short period of time. I want to take my success and parlay it into something bigger and better.

"As a father, my hope and goal is to help create a sustainable organisation that will endure for the benefit of future generations. You put goodwill out there, it's amazing what can be accomplished".

Cody Walker, CEO of Reach Out WorldWide, spoke about the first console ever made to commemorate his brother's passing:

"I loved the idea of Xbox going back to when it first started for Paul and The Fast and the Furious with this awesome custom console design.

"It's so important for the work of ROWW to continue and we're so appreciative of Xbox designing this Xbox One S and raffling it off as part of our Game4Paul livestream."

Aaron Greenberg, GM of Games Marketing at Microsoft agreed with Cody and said how happy he was to be a part of the cause:

"Our Xbox family is so proud to play a very small part in remembering Paul's great career and work with ROWW. The team put a lot of thought into this custom console design and we are thrilled to pay homage to Paul unforgettable Fast and Furious character."
