Gianna Floyd, George Floyd’s six-year-old daughter, has officially become a part of the Disney family! On Saturday, a photo was posted on Gianna’s Instagram page holding the certificate and letter, and thanking Barbara Streisand:

“Thank You @barbrastreisand for my package, I am now a Disney Stockholder thanks to you 🥰🥰🥰.” 

In reply to Gianna’s post Josh Gad (Frozen) had this to say:

“Well, now that you’re a Disney stockholder, let me know if you want a special message from Olaf😘”

Barbra Streisand has never been one to shy away from expressing her beliefs and lend her support to those people and institutions she is passionate about. So, it’s no surprise that the murder of George Floyd while in police custody should spur her to continue to lend her voice and champion causes she believes in.

Gianna, announcing on the shoulders of Stephen Jackson,“Daddy changed the world,” has echoed in the hearts of millions around the world demanding police reform and the confrontation and eradication of systemic racism.

On the heels of this outcry for justice, an outpouring of support for Gianna and her family has been in full force! This includes a full-ride scholarship to Texas Southern University in Houston should she choose to attend, and a 529 college plan set up by Kanye West.  

Gianna’s family is also using their platform to support other families suffering from the injustices at the hands of police. Namely, Rayshard Brooks who according to CNN  “was shot and killed by an Atlanta police officer at a Wendy’s parking lot in Atlanta Friday night. The officer who shot Brooks was terminated and a second officer was placed on administrative duty. The Atlanta police chief stepped down from her position.”

On her instagram page, Gianna and her family have posted a Go Fund Me link for Rayshard Brooks and his family.

Please Help Rayshard Brooks Family 🙏🏽 we will be in Atlanta standing with them next week” #justiceforrayshardbrooks

Gianna Floyd had become a member of our collective family, and in the words of Richard M. Sherman and Robert B. Sherman:

It’s a world of laughter

A world of tears

It’s a world of hopes 

And a world of fears

There’s so much that we share

That it’s time we’re aware

It’s a small world after all….
