Barbra Streisand makes George Floyd's daughter Gianna, 6, a Disney stockholder
Gianna Floyd, George Floyd's 6-year-old daughter, is now a Disney shareholder thanks to a gift package from Barbra Streisand.
Gianna reached out from her still young Instagram account to thank Streisand (78) on Saturday and to publish a series of smiling photos.
"Many thanks to @barbrastreisand for my package. Thanks to you, I'm now a Disney shareholder," wrote Gianna.

One photo showed Gianna searching her new Disney stock portfolio in a red folder, and another showed two other Streisand gifts: her 1965 album "My Name is Barbra" and "Color Me Barbra" from 1966.
USA TODAY asked Streisand's representative to comment on the gift.
Gianna's two-day Instagram account is already a destination stop with more than 29,000 followers as she follows 23 people (including Streisand, Oprah Winfrey and Michelle Obama).
After Floyd's death on May 25th in police custody in Minneapolis, Gianna posted emotional posts about her father and police brutality, including one on Sunday that simply said, "Stop killing our fathers."
An official GoFundMe account for Gianna has already raised more than $ 2.1 million.
Texas Southern University's Board of Regents approved a fund to grant Gianna a full scholarship on June 9, "if she wants to attend," marking the date of Floyd's funeral.
"We know the value of training for the pursuit of solutions and the progress of generations. We look forward to including it in the TSU family," said Gerald Smith, chair of the TSU Foundation, in a statement.
