Controversial for openly displaying his religious faith on the football field, Tim Tebow is, without question, an incredible athlete and an even more incredible human being. Pure goodness. Among programs he is sponsoring is the W15H program, which makes dreams come true for children with terminal illnesses. He is active in the building of much-needed hospitals in underdeveloped parts of the world, as well as sustaining orphanages around the globe. Another Tim Tebow Foundation initiative, Timmy’s Playrooms, is all about providing safe playrooms for hospitals.
As if those programs weren’t enough to keep Tebow busy, last year he began Night to Shine, a program he created to host many annual proms, nationwide, for people with special needs. Held this year on Valentine’s Day weekend, Tebow and 15,000 volunteers organized the event at 44 churches across America, inviting 7,000 guests with special needs, who experienced a night they will never forget, as evidenced in the video below.
According to Night to Shine‘s website, “The Tim Tebow Foundation has a great passion for people with special needs, and in 2014 we launched ‘Night to Shine.’ The vision was simple… work with churches around the country to provide an incredible prom night experience, centered on God’s love, for people with special needs, ages 16 and older.”
