"Thank you, Barbra Streisand, for my package. Thanks to you, I am now a Disney shareholder," she wrote.
The 10-time Grammy winner also gave Gianna two copies of her studio albums "My Name Is Barbra" and "Color Me Barba" from 1965 and 1966.
According to Business Insider, Disney shares currently cost around $ 115. Before the coronavirus pandemic, stocks ranged from $ 140 to $ 150, although they slowly rose again. It is unclear how many shares Gianna received from Streisand.
Kanye West also supported Gianna financially after her father's death. Earlier this month, he started a college fund for Gianna to fully cover her eventual tuition fees. Texas Southern University also offered her a full driving scholarship if she wanted to go to school in the future.
After George Floyd's death by police officers in Minneapolis on May 25, protests continued across the country. Derek Chauvin, the officer who knelt on George Floyd's neck for more than eight minutes, was arrested and charged with second-degree murder, and three other officers were accused of assisting and promoting the murder.
