Meadow Walker is using her social media sway to do something incredibly good this holiday season. The daughter of the late actor Paul Walked announced on Instagram that she is partnering with the charity Pencils of Promise to raise money for a new school.
“Today, I am launching a campaign with @pencilsofpromise to build a school. This is the season of giving and my biggest wish is to provide a space for these children to learn. Everyone deserves a good education. We are dedicating this school to my dad, Paul Walker,” she wrote in a post on Friday.
Walker explained more on the fundraising page, where she is hoping to raise $50,000.
“This is the season of giving. Do Good, is something that is extremely important to me. Even $1 can make a huge difference in providing children with a space to learn and grow. Education, all of the knowledge that you have gained, is something that can never be taken away from you. This year, building this school is the one thing on my Christmas list. In addition, I would like to dedicate this school to my father, Paul Walker,” she wrote.
“Please help me support Pencils of Promise, a for-purpose organization working to increase access to quality education for children in Ghana, Guatemala and Laos.”
One-hundred percent of donations go directly to Pencils of Promise’s efforts, and Walker is asking for just $75 from each donor.
“Together, we have an amazing opportunity to make a real and lasting difference in the lives of children around the world and we’re hoping you’ll join us–it’s as simple as making a donation to my campaign page. Just $75 creates educational opportunities for a PoP student, so every donation counts. Thank you for helping me reach my goal and change the lives of students around the world,” she wrote.
Fans in the comments of her Instagram post appreciate her cause.
“Her father would be very proud of it. congratulations on the great initiative,” one person said.
“You are very loving and caring Young Lady, just like your Dad!! Congratulations,” another commented.
Paul Walker died at just 40 years-old when a car he was a passenger in crashed in Santa Clarita, California in 2013.
