Mo’ne Davis to Sell, Sign Shoes Tonight to Benefit Nepal Earthquake Victims

The hardest-working 13-year-old on the planet adds humanitarian to her resume.

It’s official — Mo’ne Davis is the new James Brown. In addition to (deep breath) pitching for the Taney Dragons, playing high school basketball, schooling Kevin Hart at the NBA All-Star Game, writing a book and pardoning the Bloomsburg University baseball player who talked trash about her on Twitter, the hardest working 13-year-old on the planet is both a sneaker mogul and a humanitarian.

Tonight, she’s appearing at the Marian Anderson Rec Center to sell and sign her new signature kicks from the M4D3 “Because I Am A Girl” collection. The best part? All proceeds from shoe sales at the event will be donated to earthquake victims in Nepal. You won’t find a better role model—for children and adults alike—in Philadelphia than this kid.

The Details: Mo’ne Davis charity sneaker sale/autograph session, Marian Anderson Recreation Center, 740 South 17th Street, Monday May 11th, 6:30-7:30pm.
