Thanks to Barbra Streisand, George Floyd’s 6-year old daughter is Disney’s youngest shareholder.
Gianna Floyd shared a picture of her proudly holding her generous gift from the Hollywood icon.
“Thank You @barbarastreisand for my package, I am now a Disney Stockholder thanks to you,” the caption reads. The number of shares and their value has not been disclosed.
Streisand also included two of her original albums as part of the package that was sent to Gianna, “My name is Barbra” & “Color Me Barbra”
Streisand’s spokeswoman quoted the singer-songwriter saying: “I sent Gianna videos where I played a little girl in my first television special singing kid songs and my second special a sequence with lots of baby animals.”
Texas Southern University (TSU) announced earlier this month that they were offering Gianna a full scholarship should she wish to attend the university.
“We know the value of an education in the pursuit of solutions and generational progress. We look forward to embracing her into the TSU family,” Gerald Smith, chairman of the TSU Foundation, said in a statement.
In addition, Kanye West is helping to secure Gianna’s future. He is setting up a college fund for her tuition as part of his $2 million donation to support the families of Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, and Breonna Taylor.
Let’s not forget that the official GoFundMe page for Gianna has already raised over $2 million. “Thank you so much for the outpouring of love and support,” Gianna and her mother, Roxie Washington, wrote on the page.
