August 14, Tim Tebow celebrated his 32nd birthday by saving over 200 lives of children who were in need of surgeries!
The American professional baseball player is well-known for his heart for the people in need and has always been open about his faith in God. With his compassion to the people in need and his faith in God, he created the Tim Tebow Foundation in 2010 with a mission to bring Faith, Hope, and Love to those needing a brighter day in their darkest hour of need.
Tim’s foundation has different ministries that cater to different needs of the people in need. One of their ministry is the “Night to Shine” which is an unforgettable prom night experience, centered on God’s love, for people with special needs ages 14 and older.
“Tebow Cure Hospital” is another ministry that caters children with medical needs. This is a 30-bed hospital in Davao City, Philippines that has seen more than 16,102 outpatient visits, witnessed more than 3,795 professions of faith and performed more than 3,081 life-changing surgeries.
On August 12, Tim wanted to help more children in need on his birthday by starting a fund-raising on Tim Tebow Foundation Instagram account.
“I would love to celebrate 32 years of life by helping kids in their darkest hour of need. That is a true celebration! Without us, these kids in the Philippines wouldn’t be helped, wouldn’t be loved and wouldn’t receive the life-changing care they need,” Tebow explained in a video.
The target was to provide life-saving surgeries to 150 Filipino children but during his birthday on August 14, they have gathered enough amount to help over 200 children in need!
Tim is such an inspiration to everybody to live a life that reflects the goodness and kindness of God!
