Paul Walker’s Daughter Meadow Pays Emotional Tribute On Anniversary Of His Death

Paul Walker's daughter today paid an emotional tribute to honour her father's death on this day eight years ago.

Meadow Walker's tribute took the form of an Instagram post asking fans and followers to help her 'do good' by raising money for charity.

The Hollywood star famous for the Fast and Furious series died when the Porsche Carrera GT he was travelling in smashed into a concrete pole and burst into flames on 30 November 2013.

Meadow said: "To honour my dad's legacy, we hope you'll join us to Do Good."

Profits from today's sales of a mug sold by the Paul Walker Foundation will be given directly to the charity Toys for Tots.

Meadow added: "Our Foundation Family plays a crucial role in our mission to #DoGood.

"Your support allows us to spread goodwill where it's needed most, transforming lives and caring for our planet in the process.

"From building schools, to advocating for ocean conservancy, to our annual scholarship, affecting positive change is at the heart of everything we do.

"We love and appreciate you."

Others posted hearts, crying-face emojis, and said they missed him.

Toys for Tots is a charity that delivers toys to disadvantaged children in the US at Christmas.

Its website states: "The primary goal of Marine Toys for Tots is, through the gift of a new toy, help bring the joy of Christmas and send a message of hope to America's less fortunate children."

The charity is run by the United States Marine Corps and was started in 1947 by Major Bill Hendricks.

Bill's wife had a few extra toys to hand out and asked him to offer them to a charity.

From there, Toys for Tots only grew and now delivers around 18 million toys to 7 million children each year.

The mug in question costs a handsome $40 (£30), so there's sure to be a large profit left over for the charity (we hope.)

Paul's car was travelling at 80-93mph in a 45mph zone when businessman Roger Rodas, who was behind the wheel, lost control near Kelly Johnson Parkway, California.

A coroner's report ruled that he died from the trauma of the crash as well as being burned when the vehicle caught fire.
