The Tim Tebow Foundation will raise enough money to meet its $2.5 million annual budget by March or April — several months ahead of its June 30 fiscal year’s end, foundation president Erik Dellenback said.
Well, that’s not it exactly, since lots of jocks have foundations. Here it is:
Tebow pays staff salaries and administration costs out of his own pocket, leaving 100 percent of fundraising to support the foundation’s outreach, Dellenback said. The foundation’s initiatives include teaming up with CURE International on building a hospital named after Tebow in the Philippines, football-themed playrooms in oncology centers, orphan relief, and granting wishes for the terminally ill.
I find that just simply utterly Christian. Sure, he’s not the best passing QB in the NFL, but I challenge you to show me someone with more generosity and compassion. I can tolerate his on the field antics (even though I still know that God doesn’t care who wins a ballgame) knowing that he’s doing something with his life beyond ball.
I applaud you Mr Tebow, and I tip my hat to you.
