Barbra Streisand reached out to George Floyd's 6-year-old daughter, Gianna, with a special gift. The singer recently sent her a certificate and a letter that signified the youngster as a Disney shareholder.
Gianna also got two of Streisand's album titled "My Name Is Barbra," and "Color Me Barbra." The 6-year-old then shared snaps of herself holding the proof of her new title as a Disney shareholder.
That was not all; she accompanied it with a message of gratitude towards the singer. She quipped: "Thank you @barbrastreisand for my package, I am now a Disney Stockholder thanks to you."
Many Instagram followers congratulated the newest Disney stockholder. One fan stated that Gianna is "beautiful" and blessed to have received so many favors.
In terms of favors and unique gifts, Streisand isn't the only celebrity to make a donation that can secure her future.
