A Night to Shine: Tim Tebow's Prom for Those with Special Needs
Love him or hate him as a football player, no one can deny that off the field, Tim Tebow is an incredible person. His W15H program makes dreams come true for terminally ill children. He's building hospitals and sustaining orphanages around the world. His Timmy's Playrooms initiative is bringing safe playrooms to already existing hospitals. Talk about giving back!
Here's one of Tim Tebow's latest ventures you may not have heard about: Night to Shine. Last year, the Tim Tebow Foundation created an annual prom specifically for those with special needs. This February, 44 churches and 15,000 volunteers came together to celebrate 7,000 guests with special needs.
"This unforgettable prom night experience changed Valentine’s Day weekend from simply a celebration of love, to a celebration of God’s love, people with special needs and the value of life. This year we will continue expanding this ministry into a worldwide movement that allows people with special needs to shine, churches to shine, volunteers to shine, and most importantly, Christ to shine."
Recently, the Tim Tebow Foundation released these highlights from the event. If they don't put a smile on your face... nothing will.
"Tonight, our number one goal is to make you feel like kings and queens. But to be honest with you, every moment of your life, God looks at you like a king or a queen, because you're so special."
Thanks for reminding us all about what's truly important in life, Tim.
If you or your church would like to be involved in next year's Night to Shine on February 12, 2016, please contact the Tim Tebow Foundation, here.
