Stephen Curry has long been an advocate for women’s rights and supporting little girls in their dreams of achieving basketball superstardom.
Curry recently received a letter from 9-year-old Riley Morrison who wanted to purchase a pair of Curry 5s. But as she shopped with her father online, the California girl noticed there were no sizes for girls available in the NBA star's collaboration with Under Armour.
So she did what most go-getters would do: ask the Golden State Warriors player to do something about it. Morrison noted she was eager to get the sneakers as she was beginning a new basketball season soon.
After her father posted the letter on Instagram, it made waves on the internet and eventually made it to Curry.

Curry then responded to Morrison with a handwritten letter of his own, promising Riley a lot more than what she asked. Not only was she receiving new sneakers, but also she was getting invited to celebrate International Women's Day at a special Oakland event in March, CBS Sports reported.

According to Sports Illustrated, Curry signed to Under Armour in 2013 and has been steadily pushing the brand forward.
“His work ethic, uncompromising self-belief, and commitment to the community are characteristics that make Stephen the perfect partner to ignite the growth of Under Armour in the sport of basketball and around the world,” Under Armour CEO Kevin Plank said in a statement.
