Universal plans to donate a portion of the proceeds from upcoming Fast & Furious 6 DVD and Blu-ray sales to Paul Walker's charity, the studio announced Tuesday.
Universal did not specify what percentage of the sales will go to Walker's non-profit Reach Out Worldwide, which helps first responders to accelerate relief efforts after natural disasters strike.
"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," Donna Langley, Chairman of Universal Pictures, said in a statement. "We keep Paul's memory alive and honor his legacy through continued support of Reach Out WorldWide, the non-profit he founded to give hope to those who must rebuild after they have experienced natural disasters."
Walker and his friend Roger Rodas died Saturday in a fiery car crash in Santa Clarita, Calif. The two were coming from a Reach Out Worldwide event to raise money for those affected by the recent typhoon in the Philippines. The investigation into his death is ongoing, and speed is being considered as a factor.
Fast & Furious 6 is slated to be released on DVD and Blu-ray Dec. 10.
