10 yr old Giani Graham was only 9 years old when started her own collection of Barbie dolls , she only had five at the time. They were her own Christmas gifts that she decided to donate instead of play with.
Once word got out about her efforts, she began getting dolls from people across the country and across the world. Back in January she reached her goal of collecting 1,000 Barbie dolls for girls in foster homes and shelters across Hampton roads. Although her original goal has been completed, Graham says she's not done helping others. Her new goal is now to collect 10,000 dolls for girls here in Hampton Roads and around the country. "I want it to make them feel that they have a friend to talk to and play with," explained Graham. "When they are going through a hard time to make it easier." to Help her in her efforts, go to her website , 1KBarbiesfor1KGirls.com
