Paul Walker did not die in vain.

The handsome actor who was apparently as generous as he was beloved is still being mourned at the crash site.

Many experts are pointing out how dangerous the model Porsche car he was being driven in is and that only expert drivers should be behind the wheel. Walker was considered a very good driver, but he was not behind the wheel on the day of that fateful crash.

Now that his autopsy is complete, the actor's charity will reportedly get 'Fast & Furious 6' proceeds.

Universal Pictures has announced that a percentage of proceeds from the home entertainment release — Blu-ray, DVD, Digital and On Demand — of Fast & Furious 6 will be donated to Paul Walker's non-profit Reach Out WorldWide.

Walker founded the charitable network of professionals with first responder skill-sets who initiate and facilitate relief efforts when natural disasters strike, after the January 2010 Haiti earthquake.

"With the passing of Paul, the world has lost a man who spent a great deal of his life in service to others. We share in the deep grief of his family, friends and the countless fans who love him," said Donna Langley, chairman of Universal Pictures.

Paul Walker's family has requested that in lieu of flowers or other gifts, donations be made to support Reach Out WorldWide at www.Roww.org.
