Disclaimer/TW: It is important to remember that while this an enormous loss for many communities, it is also a trigger for victims of sexual assault.

As the tragic news spread of the loss of NBA all-star Kobe Bryant and 13-year old, extremely talented daughter Gianna, almost everyone had a story. A story of how Kobe inspired them, how the Lakers excited them or how Gianna and his children encouraged a story of forgiveness and love. Gianna was her Father’s legacy and there was no room for critics in her world. Hard-rock band Beartooth were among those deeply changed by this loss and are using their platform to foster a moment of support for the families affected by selling a charity t-shirt for Mamba On Three, with 100% of proceeds donated to MOT.
“Growing up, we were all fans of Kobe Bryant. Last week’s tragedies affected so many people, us included. To honor the legacy of not only Kobe, his daughter Gianna, but all those who lost their lives, we’re releasing this very special limited edition shirt where we’ll donate 100% of the profits to the #MambaOnThree Fund, which will help support the families affected by this horrific tragedy. The link to our store can be directed from the link in our bio as well as our story. #KobeBryant #Mamba #MambaMentality #MambaForever #MambaOut #GirlsDad #NBA” – Beartooth
The MambaOnThree Fund was created to honor Team Mamba’s mantra, “Mamba on Three.” It’s with that customary chant for togetherness, sisterhood and the ability to take on every challenge that this Fund was named.
The MambaOnThree Fund exists to honor and support loved ones of the seven other victims involved in the tragedy that occurred on January 26, 2020. All donations to the Fund will be directed to their families.
