"Reflecting on my father, I found myself reflecting on his passions," she explained in the caption. "His passion for the ocean, his passion for rescuing animals, his passion for helping people and his passion for spontaneous goodwill.

"I wanted to start this foundation because I want to share that piece of him with the world. I want to share that part of him with others. I am tremendously proud to be launching The #PaulWalkerFoundation (@paulwalkerfdn) on his birthday. I can't think of a better way to celebrate my father. #DoGood."

Paul tragically passed away in November 2013 after being involved in a car crash with friend Roger Rodas, who was driving the Porsche Carrera GT. The coroner's report revealed that the actor died from "combined effects of traumatic and thermal injuries".

Paul's Fast & Furious co-star Vin Diesel recently paid another touching tribute to Paul in an emotional speech as he and the rest of the cast collected the award for Teen Choice award for best action movie.

"We are a true, true, true family. You fans have been so incredible to us and have encouraged us and made us reach higher each time," he said. "I can't stand here and be rewarded like this without talking about somebody very, very, very important to us.

"One of the best lessons in our lives is the fact that we had the opportunity to call Pablo our brother. Paul Walker is here in spirit with us."

"And since this is a Teen Choice award, you beautiful teens, there is one teen in the audience that is part of the family that kept us going," he said. "It's Paul Walker's family – his parents and his brothers – that kept us encouraged while we were making Furious 7, but there is one very, very special teen here, and her name is Meadow Walker."
