Kobe Bryant auctions several items for anti-bullying campaign
NBA superstar, Kobe Bryant, has donated several personal items for a good cause.
The LA Lakers star has gathered a few momentous, including his 2000 NBA All-Star game ring, two of his game-worn high school uniforms and his 1996 Magic Roundball Classic All-Star medallion and ribbon, all to benefit an anti-bullying campaign.
50% of the proceeds from the sale will benefit the Bully Project, a campaign designed to create a culture of empathy, with a problem that is sweeping the nation. “We’re delighted to have been chosen to benefit from the auction of these once-in-a-lifetime items from Kobe Bryant,” said Lee Hirsch, the director of “Bully.” “Athletes set a powerful example when they speak out against bullying and we deeply appreciate the efforts of everyone involved in this auction for helping us to amplify this message.”
