Gospel Star, Melinda Watts, Releases Christmas Charity Single to Benefit At-Risk Girls
In partnership with EEW Magazine, Melinda Watts, Founder of the Dream Girlz Gathering Foundation, is launching a musical fundraising effort with all proceeds benefiting girls in foster care and underserved communities
Last month, during National Adoption Month, Watts’ charity hosted 75 enthusiastic girls at her Foundation’s G.L.A.M. (Girls Leadership and Mentoring) Camp at the Pinebrook Conference and Retreat Center in Pennsylvania. Each attendee enjoyed a special time of bonding, sharing, praying, and worshiping, in a fun, safe environment. Testimonials poured in from girls who said it was a life-changing weekend. According to Watts, a greater number of girls and their parents desired to participate, but the Dream Girlz Gathering staff was unable to accommodate a larger group—something Watts is hoping to change with donations and support from individuals, ministries, and groups interested in linking up with her cause.
“There are so many young girls who need love and guidance and I want to be able to help as many as possible,” Watts, who is currently working on her new album to be released in 2012, tells EEW Magazine. Through the sale of the charity single and charitable donations of “Dream Girlz Gathering Angels,” the name designated for supporters, Watts anticipates the day when the Foundation will be able to assist more girls.
“I absolutely love what Melinda Watts is doing through her Dream Girlz Gathering Foundation,”
Currently, Melinda Watts is featured in the December 2011 issue of EEW Magazine where details are available about how mission-focused individuals and organizations can help support her Dream Girlz Gathering Foundation.
