Kanye West has donated $2 million to support the families of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery and Breonna Taylor, a representative for West told CNN.

This donation will include funding to go towards legal fees for Arbery and Taylor's families, along with funding for black-owned businesses in crisis in his native Chicago and other cities.

According to CNN, West has reportedly established a 529 education plan to fully cover college tuition for Gianna Floyd, the 6-year-old daughter of George Floyd.

Public demonstrations have taken place all around the world in response to the deaths of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery and Breonna Taylor, which has led to a number of folks in the entertainment industry joining the cries for an end to systematic racism, police brutality and action from political leadership.

CNN has also stated that "Three of the Minneapolis Police officers arrested in Floyd's death make their first court appearance Thursday afternoon, as the Floyd family holds the first of several planned memorial services."

Meanwhile, a touching video of Floyd's daughter Gianna proclaiming that her "Daddy changed the world" has made waves on social media, and with this proposed funding coming from Kanye West, it appears Gianna is going to have all the tools to change the world herself.
