Kobe on Extreme Home Makeover

Kobe Bryant appeared on Extreme Makeover: Home Edition’s 200th and final episode on January 13th. In the episode, Kobe sponsored a winter clothing drive at UC Irvine to help those who lost everything in a tornado that decimated the town of Joplin, Missouri. A reported 160 people died from a tornado that swept through that region on May 22 and has been considered the seventh deadliest in U.S. history. To help boost donation numbers, those who brought clothing were entered into a raffle for a chance to play Bryant in a one-on-one game.
