Amy Winehouse's father, Mitch, has set up a foundation in his daughter's honor — and they're now ready to turn their grief into action.
“The launch of Amy's foundation 14th September. We will turn our grief into positive action. (sic)”
The charity would have gone live much sooner, but there were issues with the registration.
“Somebody else pinched it off of us before we could get it registered. All these donations which are coming in - we don't know what to do with them at the moment. We'll have to hold off for the time being".
The charity itself is in position to help young addicts overcome their addictions, and hopefully save lives before it's too late like Amy's.
We really hope this charity is successful, there are so many people out there battling these issues. We'd love to see this help some lives.
