Tim Tebow and his foundation–an organization aimed at empowering and supporting young people–have announced that they’ll be sponsoring 50 proms across the country this year for those with special needs called Night To Shine.
The special events will be free to everyone and will all go on simultaneously on the day before Valentine’s Day this year. A spokesperson for the Tim Tebow Foundation says the hope is that everyone involved will feel welcome.
“Everyone should have the opportunity to experience a prom where they feel loved and welcomed and we pray this event will positively impact the lives of thousands of people across the country,” executive director Erik Dellenback told GreenvilleOnline.
According to the organization’s website, their goal is to bring happiness to kids all over the world.
“From a very early age, my parents instilled in me the importance of God’s word, the salvation we have in His Son Jesus and the responsibility we have to give back to others. That’s why in 2010, I was so excited to create the Tim Tebow Foundation with a mission to bring Faith, Hope and Love to those needing a brighter day in their darkest hour of need,” reads Tebow’s message. “This foundation and all of our outreach initiatives were primarily created to show God’s love to children around the world. I encourage you to explore this site and see how we have been able to accomplish our mission through God’s blessings and the support of our generous donors and partners.”
Guests at Night To Shine will receive perks such as professional photography, hair and makeup, and prom favors on their special night.
Meanwhile, Tebow has been in the headlines recently after he appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live and read a mean tweet about himself, which he eventually laughed off.
“Tim Tebow is not cute, sexy, or hot. He ugly. Sorry about it,” he read.
