Tebow Auctions Heisman Trophy to Raise $1 Million for Kids in Need, Inspired by His Hero Parents

Talia Wise : Sep 23, 2022  Faithwire.com

"These trophies and these championships are awesome, but ultimately they're not what's most important. There are so many things that are more important, and I am so grateful for that perspective..." -Tim Tebow

[Faithwire.com] Just when you thought Tim Tebow couldn't be a better representative of Christian charity than he has already been, a compelling new example of his creative generosity has emerged. (Screengrab image)

He's already renowned for his Tim Tebow Foundation with "Night to Shine" events for young people with special needs, or his efforts to fight human trafficking, and his CURE Hospital for poverty-stricken children.

Now it turns out the former NFL quarterback has raised more than $1 million for charities by auctioning off his Heisman trophy. The outspoken Christian says it is what he learned from his parents that taught him the importance of giving to others.

"These trophies and these championships are awesome, but ultimately they're not what's most important. There are so many things that are more important, and I am so grateful for that perspective," he told The Dan Patrick Show this week.

Tebow won the Heisman in 2007, the youngest player to do so at that time.

The prestigious award coveted by football athletes normally sits on players' shelves after it is received, but one year Tebow got the idea to auction it off for charity.

"For the last eight or nine years, every six months I have used it to auction off for a charity, for people to keep in their home and use it for something that they can brag about," he said.

The most notable winners are Kathy Lee Gifford and country singer Luke Bryan... Subscribe for free to Breaking Christian News here
