    Amy Winehouse's father is letting no grass grow under his feet regarding his plans to launch a foundation in his late daughter's name. Mitch Winehouse met with government officials on Monday to discuss his plans for a charitable foundation in his daughter's memory.

    The plans for the foundation were announced last Tuesday when dad delivered a eulogy for his daughter at her funeral.

    Papa Winehouse told mourners the foundation will offer both help and support for those with ongoing addiction problems, which Amy also dealt with.

    Mr. Winehouse met with Keith Vaz MP (Member of Parliament) and Minister for Crime and Security James Brokenshire to present his plans for the charity and seek funding assistance. He's that serious about this foundation.

    That's also called making good on a promise and putting plans into action.
