Vanessa Bryant Is Renaming Kobe Bryant's Charity - Find Out Why!

Vanessa Bryant is honoring not only her late husband Kobe Bryant, but also her late daughter, Gianna, with a name change.

In an announcement on Thursday (February 13), Vanessa revealed that the name of the foundation will be changed to the Mamba & Mambacita Sports Foundation.

“Because there is no #24 without #2, we have updated the Mamba Sports Foundation to now be called the Mamba & Mambacita Sports Foundation,” she announced.

The foundation’s goal remains helping young people through sports, and “remains the same — and stronger than ever.”

The charity has helped over 10,000 children, as well as hundreds of veterans.

“Thank you all for the outpouring of support and your kind donations to date as we carry forth Kobe and Gigi’s legacy. We hope to empower young athletes in a world they left us all to help shape,” she went on to say.

The Kobe and Gianna memorial service now has a date. Here’s what’s being planned…
