Little League, Big Heart: Mo’Ne Davis Launches Sneaker Line to Benefit Impoverished Girls
Little league superstar Mo’Ne Davis has been making the best of her quick rise to relevance after a record breaking performing on the diamond. The little league pitcher has been doing what she can do to build up her communities around her.
Today, reports surface saying that she will be launching her own sneaker line, partnering with M4D3 to make this possible, the sneaker line is designed to benefit impoverished girls. Davis stated, “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. 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.” (via itsbriansworld.com)
M4D3 spoke about partnering with the young 13 year old role model, “So partnering with her is such a natural fit for M4D3! We are creating a shoe that we know Mo’ne fans will love and be proud of, and that will Make A Difference Everyday. Together with Mo’ne, we are designing a shoe that represents who she is; contemporary, spirited and athletic, but at the same time being very caring towards other girls and young women that are vulnerable around the world. Earlier this year, we launched a collection of sneakers with Plan International USA for the Because I am a Girl initiative, and we are thrilled to expand this lineup with the Mo’ne shoe.” (Madame Noire)
