As you may know, Kobe Bryant took on the challenge of fighting homelessness last summer, and has been extremely dedicated to his cause.

Additionally, over this past summer, Bryant spent a night on Skid Row–an infamous span of four square miles largely occupied by the homeless–and visited the LA Mission. Kobe talked to various individuals and listened to their stories; becoming inspired by them.

Today, Bryant released a series of videos, via Facebook.

Kobe prefaced the video with this brief message:

Over the off season I took a walk down skid row. It was life changing for me and I want to share those experiences with you. Please take a look and tell me what you think:

And now, the powerful videos (The links should automatically transition into the next video, but I posted all six individually as well):

Kobe has been extremely involved in his fight against homelessness as he and his wife, Vanessa, founded their own foundation–the Kobe & Vanessa Bryant Family Foundation–which has partnered with a resource center in Hollywood named My Friend’s Place.

The Black Mamba will also be the honorary chair for “HomeWalk in LA” on November 17, and wants you to walk with him. If interested, you can sign up and join Kobe’s team here: http://homewalkla.kintera.org/teamkobe.

Note: You can visit the Bryant’s website for their foundation at kvbff.org, “like” it on Facebook, or follow on Twitter @KVBFF.

    I saw the videos and tears came out my eyes, seeing Kobe (Hero) helping the homeless.

    When I am at downtown L.A, I always wondered why the rich people of L.A don’t get rid of this homeless people off the street. Then I was told these people take govt. aid and also do drugs.They have no intention of sobering up or doing something positive and moving forward. (Drug supply route is from here also. If Kobe moves the homeless, who is going to assist drug dealers?. Kobe will be going against politicians involved in drugs and cartels/drug dealers….NOT A GOOD MOVE!!!

    Kobe went into an area where there is no final success.

    System is messed up.
    In Oct 2012 U.S. seeks $2 billion in military aid for Pakistan…
    Imagine that money being invested in this cause, imagine the possibilities…
    We have election process: money spent almost more then $5 billion dollars…

    Msg: Mr. Kobe Bryant, best of luck in eradicating homelessness. Solution has to come from Govt/public. I’ll love to support your foundation but I have to see your objectives and how you are going to attain them.
