Mo’Ne Davis is going to be a flat-out star, in whatever she chooses to do in life. I wouldn’t be shocked if she’s the mayor of Philadelphia one day.
On top of having dreams of running women’s college basketball — Davis is setting out to help feed poor and needy girls across Philadelphia and the nation.
Davis, the first female pitcher to win a Little League World Series game, is doing it better than you and for a worthy cause.
Mo’Ne partnered with M4D3 (Make A Difference Everyday) and Because I Am a Girl to release a Mo’ne designed sneaker.
The sneakers are modestly priced at $75 and are designed to replicate the stitching on a baseball. Fifteen percent of the proceeds from the sneakers will support Plan International’s Because I Am A Girl initiative, which helps girls living in poverty in developing countries.
“I never thought at the age of 13 I’d be a role model, but having young girls look up to me is pretty cool,” Mo’Ne said in a news release. “If I can inspire them to reach their goals, that would be even cooler. Designing shoes with M4D3 is exciting and I wanted them to support Because I am a Girl to help girls and give them a chance at a better future.”
The limited-edition #MoneDavis Collection is now available for pre-order online!⚾️⚾️ As part of M4D3’s social purpose mandate, proceeds from the sneaker sales will benefit @plan_usa’s @bcimagirl initiative to help lift four million girls in the developing world out of poverty. #MakeADifferenceEveryday #M4D3 #ThrowLikeAGirl #limitededition http://store.made-shoes.com/women.html
