Tim Tebow Threw A Prom For Children With Special Needs, And It’s Wonderful

What a wonderful story!

In 2015, children from across the world were surprised with a one-of-kind prom, courtesy of Football player Tim Tebow’s foundation.

The event was called Night To Shine and was sponsored by the Tim Tebow Foundation.  The goal of the event was to give teens with special needs the chance to experience their own prom.  The event consisted of 200 other proms in 48 states and 8 countries including the U.S., Haiti, Kenya, New Zealand, and Ecuador.

And this was no ordinary prom.  It had a red carpet, amazing decorations and under the full spotlight of paparazzi.  They were even treated with crowns, beautiful dresses and flowers.

Tebow spoke to Good Morning America about the event and said:

My inspiration was when I was 15 years old and I was at a school in a remote village in the Philippines. There was a boy who was shunned out of the event because his feet were on backwards. What we want to do is fight for the people who can’t fight for themselves. That’s what it’s all about.

Thanks to the great people who put on this event for making the dreams of these children come true.

Check out the amazing and touching photos from the Night To Shine events around the world.

We are so thankful for God’s bountiful blessings on #NightToShine last night as the world witnessed His love and more…
