Paul Walker‘s recent sudden death filled the media outlets biggest news for a while. Yes, he was a good looking, actor whose movies resonated with a worldwide audience. However, his legacy with the non-profit Reach Out World Wide ( ROWW).
From their own description, “ROWW is a network of professionals with first responder skill-sets who augment local expertise when natural disasters strike in order to accelerate relief efforts.”
Responding with needed supplies, food, and water to victims of disaster like Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines, the tornadoes in Illinois and Oklahoma are just some of the most recent ROWW relief projects.
ROWW works with volunteer skilled first responders. They know how to provide and operate relief efforts. This results in a highly skilled service that has benefited a lot of people across the world where disasters strike.
Walker was an integral part of the organization and its founder. He used his celebrity and means to move ROWW’s efforts forward. He also worked on site in many disasters as a skilled First Responder.
I believe that this part of his life is where he truly served his fellow human beings. It also reflects the character and person he truly was in reality.
This where his name and legacy will live on with real purpose for years to come.
