We watched as April the giraffe awaited the birth of her calf, now we have a chance to give the calf a name with meaning.

A Massachusetts 6-year-old named Gio Maggiore loved giraffes.

He passed away earlier this month from a congenital heart defect.

Now his family and friends are trying to rally national support to name April's calf "Gio."

It's a buck to vote, we have a link below where you can vote for "Gio" or another name.


The voting ends this Sunday, April 30.
