Fashion may be fun, but it can also change people’s lives.

Mo’ne Davis, the famous 13-year-old little league pitcher that covered Sports Illustratedis teaming up with shoe brand M4D3 to design a line of sneakers, which will give 15 percent of its proceeds to benefit impoverished girls around the globe.

The sneaker company is collaborating with the Because I’m A Girl movement for the shoe, which will match the stitching of a baseball. Mo’ne told the press:

“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.”

A spokesperson for M4D3 released a 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.”

Mo’ne’s sneakers are currently available to pre-order here. Take a look at a few of the sneakers from the collection below.
