Mo’Ne Davis is making moves and sneakers. The 13-year-old has designed a sneaker line that will benefit girls in poverty stricken-countries.
In partnership with M4D3 and the non-profit Because I Am a Girl, Davis proves that her talents are endless. She designed a line of colorful sneakers with baseball stitchings that will go for $75 a pair. With each pair sold, M4D3 will donate 15% of the proceeds to 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,” Davis said. “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.”
Lisa Zbitnew of M4D3 released the following statement:
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.”
How amazing is Davis? She could give some adults a run for their money when it comes to being a role model and just all-around good person.
