9-Year-Old Collects Thousands of Barbie Dolls to Donate to Other Little Girls in Need

She’s even taking her “Barbie Girl” campaign nationwide…

A young girl with a big heart hatched on an idea to ensure every needy little girl in her city never need go without a “friend” to confide their problems in. She decided to collect Barbie Dolls from other people to donate to foster children, and kids in shelters and underprivileged neighborhoods.

A self-confessed Barbie Doll lover, nine-year-old Gianni Graham, who hails from Hampton Roads, Virginia, was inspired by her aunt who adopted three girls from foster homes who didn’t have any dolls of their own. Gianni began with a New Year’s resolution to amass 1,000 dolls to send to other little girls living in shelters and foster homes.

Her resolution snowballed, and within weeks she was able to accumulate not only 1,000 dolls, but…

Gianni and her mom personally hand-delivered some 1,200 Barbie dolls to foster care and shelter girls in their area just a couple of months into the “Barbie Girl” campaign.

Gianni’s mother, who is still so overwhelmed by her daughter’s generous gesture, noted a lot of the Barbie donations came from people out of state, and with the success of the initial venture, Gianni wants to supersize her campaign to encompass not only the state of Virginia, but the whole United States.

Gianni believes every little girl needs a companion they can talk to when they are lonely, or when they find themselves in situations they have no control over.

She is now calling upon more privileged kids from New York, Atlanta, Miami, and as far as Hawaii to become “Barbie Girl” ambassadors, empowering them to become young leaders who will start collecting Barbie dolls for needy little girls in their cities.

This summer, Gianni aims to collect 10,000 Barbie dolls for every city.

Have you got the heart it takes to make needy little girls as happy as Gianni did this year?

They Denied His Wife Water So He Spent 40 Days Single Handedly Digging a Well For Her

Fighting back against discrimination and biases in the best way possible…

By

Discrimination is alive and well in many parts of the world, and in Southeast Asia, it takes the form of the legal and widely-accepted caste system in India where people of a higher social strata are openly biased against the lower classes.

One such bias occurred in the western state of Maharashtra when a poor laborer's wife was barred from drawing water from the common well because she belonged to one of the lowest castes in India, the Dalits.

Kids Answer Simple Questions Yet The Messages They Relay Are So Profound

“What do you want to be when you want to grow up?”

By

"What do you want to be when you want to grow up?" It's such a common question that most of us has encountered during our youth. However, as time flew by us and we experienced life's ups and downs, we adults have shed our youthful innocence and simple perspective in life.

In a video created by Upworthy, young children were asked about what they want to be when they grow up. Some of the answers were pretty simple, while others were quite far-fetched, which, as expected, was a reflection of their youthful and innocent thought process. However, some of the observations voiced out by the kids were a direct reflection of how our society has evolved, and what they have described is not a pretty picture.
