After only a few months after the death of the incomparable Amy Winehouse, the foundation created in her honor has already made its first donation. Little Havens Children’s Hospital is to be the first beneficiary, with a pledge of $750,000 to go to them this year to help vulnerable children in the UK. The Amy Winehouse Foundation was created by the singer’s family, with intent to continue her legacy in a positive and uplifting way. Her father Mitch is acting chair, donating his time at not cost, meaning he won’t be getting a salary. Anyone can donate, just check out their website, also keep an eye out for Lioness: Hidden Treasures, her new posthumous album of which a dollar of every sale will benefit the charity.
