Stephanie McMahon Levesque is a former professional wrestling valet and also the Executive Vice President, Creative for World Wrestling Entertainment. Recently, Stephanie MacMahon and WWE have announced an important partnership with Nothing But Nets at the Social Good Summit.
She and other former Divas Champions Alicia and Layla Fox talked about the new alliance with the United Nations Foundation’s global to prevent malaria and save lives.
Malaria is a leading killer in Africa, but Stephanie McMahon is optimistic: “We have an incredibly powerful voice, with over 115 million social media followers, and we want to use that voice to give back to the community.”
The announcement was made at the Social Good Summit and via Twitter during the “Wrestling Malaria: Uniting Fans Online & Offline for Social Good” Q&A. The event took place at the 92nd Street Y in Manhattan, was streamed online in over 200 countries and moderated by Elisabeth Gore, Vice President of Global Partnerships for the United Nations Foundation.
McMahon and WWE will promote this important campaign through social media and programming. Some of the Divas will be sent in Africa to draw attention to this severe problem and to distribute bed nets.
Malaria has caused the death of many kids and affects many women, as well. Even if Nothing But Nets has already distributed over 6.5 million bed nets, Malaria still is a problem as every 60 seconds a child under 5 years dies. Stephanie McMahon declared that she is honored to be part of such a meaningful campaign and that she will do her best to help those kids and women from Africa.
