On Sunday, October 1, Xbox will partner with Reach Out WorldWide (ROWW) to host their third-annual livestream charity event, Game4Paul, to honor Paul Walker and his passion for people and spreading good will at the Microsoft Lounge in Venice, CA.
ROWW is a disaster relief nonprofit, founded by Paul Walker, with the purpose of providing quick and efficient relief to those who need it most in the chaos after a natural disaster. Today, ROWW has teams on the ground in Texas and Florida responding to Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma. Funds raised at this event go to support ROWW's teams on the ground and ensure they can continue to deploy in response to disasters worldwide.
In celebration of Paul Walker's birthday, his friends and family, ROWW, and Xbox will come together to at the Microsoft Lounge to remember him and the charity he founded in a livestreamed event. The livestream will feature over six hours of celebrity guests, games, stunts, comedy, personal stories, live auctions for signed items, one of a kind Xbox items and more -- all to raise money for Reach Out WorldWide disaster relief.
"With all of the recent storms recently hitting the U.S., this event is extremely important to ROWW and the people we are helping right now. Our family is excited to be joined once again by some of Paul's closest friends and costars for this great event, and help raise money for ROWW's relief efforts in Texas, Florida, and around the world," said Cody Walker, Paul's brother and CEO of Reach Out WorldWide.
Xbox, who is partnering with Reach Out WorldWide for the first time, will showcase several new games throughout the livestream, including Forza Motorsport 7.
"Through Reach Out WorldWide, Paul Walker helped make a tremendous impact in communities all over the world," said Aaron Greenberg, GM of Games Marketing at Xbox. "Xbox is very proud to help Cody and team continue Paul's legacy, and we look forward to seeing how many Xbox fans join in giving back to such a great cause."
Please join us in our commitment to carry on Paul's legacy through ROWW. Everyone can support Game4Paul by watching live through the Mixer Xbox Channel, Twitch Xbox Channel and Cody Walker's Facebook page.
While part of a relief team responding to the massive earthquakes that devastated Haiti in 2010, Actor/Producer Paul Walker saw a gap between the availability of skilled resources and the requirement for such personnel in post-disaster situations.
Following the trip he contacted a group of his friends to assist him in forming Reach Out WorldWide (ROWW) with the purpose of filling this unmet need. Reach Out WorldWide has since grown to an agile volunteer network of elite disaster relief specialists.
We are committed to providing critical help to those in crises and focus in the medical, humanitarian aid, and recovery fields both domestically and internationally.
