Gianni realized she needed some way to pay for all the wrapping paper she was using to wrap Barbie dolls for other girls as gifts, so she decided to make and sell earrings. She makes the earrings from fabric she purchases at craft stores, and the money she gets pays for the wrapping paper.
Adding a personal touch
What is even more amazing about Gianni is that she includes a personal, hand-written note with each Barbie doll she gives away. Since she began her "company," she has collected and donated almost 5,000 Barbie dolls.
She comments, “The girls that are in the foster homes may think, ‘No one loves me,’ ‘I’m not beautiful,’ ‘I’m not anything,’ But they actually are, and I want them to find that in themselves!”
