Serena Williams selling daughter's clothes for charity

By Bang

Serena Williams is selling her daughter's clothes for charity on her Poshmark shop, which will see the proceeds go to her Yetunde Price Resource Center.

The 37-year-old tennis star has 18-month-old daughter Alexis Olympia with her husband Alexis Ohanian, and on Thursday, she made the move to add 36 items from her tot's closet to her Poshmark account, with the intention of giving the proceeds from the clothes to charity.

Money raised from Olympia's clothes will go to Serena's charity the Williams Sister Fund - which she set up with her sister Venus in 2016 - and their Yetunde Price Resource Center, whose mission is to "offer trauma-informed programs that promote individual and community-wide healing and resiliency."

Serena previously donated money to the cause when she put up clothes from her own collection for sale on her Posh Closet for Charity last month, which saw all items sell out completely within minutes.

Olympia's selection of garments include a tracksuit, three dresses, Gucci sneakers, overalls, and a t-shirt featuring her superstar mother in the middle of a tennis match.

Meanwhile, Serena recently admitted she wants her tot to "embrace" being a strong woman.

When asked what she wants to teach her daughter about being strong, Serena said: "Embrace it."

The sporting superstar then spoke about her partnership with Bumble, a dating app in which women make the first contact with matched users, which also has a business version designed to make contacts to further careers.

Serena - who is a global ambassador for the app - added: "I want to teach her that it's OK to make the first move. It's OK to ask and to say, 'Listen, I want a chance at being in this play. Like put me in. Or just give me this first opportunity.' There's so many different ways to showcase that."
