I am so happy to post another article from The Root about another child making a difference. This little one is going to be a force to be reckoned with, with her big heart. Nine-years-old Gianni Graham from Norfolk, Va, is collecting Barbie dolls to give to young girls in homeless shelters around her area. The young girl decided to do this after Christmas. “I wanted to inspire them and give encouragement,” she said.

Graham’s goal is to collect a 1,000 dolls to give to 1,000 little girls like her. When she first started out she had five dolls, two of which she had received for Christmas. Since her story has picked up, she has received 500 dolls, but her goal hasn’t been reached just yet. I am just so proud of her and all the kids like her truly making a difference. The future looks brighter and brighter with kids like this setting a foundation of giving and caring. You can read the article in the link provided. You can also head on over to Graham’s site to donate dolls, 1kbarbiesfor1kgirls.
