Fly girl Mo’ne Davis has teamed up with company M4D3 to design a sneaker line that will benefit impoverished girls. The young superstar is taking her status as a role model seriously:

“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.”

From The Root:

Professional athletes with sneaker lines take note. Mo’Ne Davis, the first female pitcher to win a Little League World Series game, is doing it better than you and for a worthy cause. The baseball phenom has 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.
