“Thank You @barbrastreisand for my package, I am now a Disney Stockholder thanks to you,” the caption reads beneath a photo of GiGi holding her stock certificate. Streisand also sent some copies of her albums to the girl.

George Floyd was killed by Minneapolis police after officer Derek Chauvin kneeled on his neck for almost nine minutes. Derek Chauvin has been arrested and charged with second-degree murder and three other officers were charged in the incident as well. Floyd’s death in police custody sparked demonstrations against police brutality and racism in all 50 states and other countries across the world.

Streisand hasn’t addressed her gift on social media, but has been vocal in her support of Black Lives Matter and shared a video of Gianna Floyd at a demonstration saying “Daddy changed the world.”

Streisand isn’t the only celebrity to offer assistance to George Floyd’s family. Boxing legend Floyd Mayweather paid for George Floyd’s funeral, several other celebs have donated to anti-racism non-profits and some are even taking to the streets themselves.
