The former number one in the world has impacted with a beautiful initiative with the idea of trying to mitigate the effects and the risk of contagion of the coronavirus, highlighting once again that whenever she can she tries to get involved in humanitarian causes that go beyond sport.
Thus, the American tennis player has launched the project #MasksForKids: A mega collaboration with Bella + Canvas and the National School Board Association to donate nothing more and nothing less than 4.25 million masks for all the children who return to school next September.
Even though their goal is to distribute the masks to more than 115,000 schools in the United States, Serena It will place special emphasis on schools with fewer resources, those that house children in need, who will also distribute educational material. And it is precisely the children and the environments with the least resources that worry the tennis player and those that become her focus of greatest attention.

“I am grateful to have the opportunity to help educate in our schools about these necessary resources, and to have the opportunity to help so many students,” said the tennis player.
