Many caring for George Floyd's daughter

 When George Floyd was killed last May by a police officer in Minneapolis, Minnesota, footage of the homicide sparked Black Lives Matter protests across America. He left a legacy of activism, but he also left behind a 7-year-old daughter named Gianna. Now the world is looking after her. For example, Kyrie Irving, point guard for the Brooklyn Nets, bought the Floyd family a house.

Barbra Streisand gave them stock in Disney. And Kanye West donated $2 million to help Gianna and also the families of Ahmaud Arbery, the 25-year-old victim of racially motivated murder in Georgia, and 26-year-old Breonna Taylor, who was killed during a botched drug raid when police showed up at the wrong apartment. Ordinary citizens are also donated to George Floyd's daughter. A GoFundMe page has raised more than $2.3 million, providing a fund when she's ready to attend college, if she does not want to take advantage of a full scholarship offered by Texas Southern University.
