Money Can be Selfless Power
There are so many athletes with millions of dollars in the world. I personally believe they are overly paid just for playing a few games. It’s quite difficult to find athletes who are truly involved within their community. A player who truly stands out to me due to his efforts in helping out is Tim Tebow.
Tim Tebow is the quarterback for the Denver Broncos. He was born in the Philippines while his parents were attending one of their missionary works. While pregnant, Tebow’s mother suffered an infection with pathogenic amoeba. Due to the drugs used to stop the infectious disease, Tebow’s mother was advice to terminate her pregnancy. She refused to go with the proposal, thus Timothy Richard Tebow was born. Growing up, Tim Tebow was home-schooled. Youngest of 5 children, he showed extreme potential and talent. In 1996, a law was passed which allowed home-schooled Florida residents to participate in high school sport activities. Tebow was given the opportunity to play for the Trinity Christian Academy and Nease. Soon, he was becoming the talk of the town. As Tim Tebow was given the opportunity to play for the Florida Gators and eventually the Denver Broncos, he started his foundation known as the “Tim Tebow Foundation”. This foundation helps children in an orphanage in the Philippines, a cancer center for children, and round trips to Disney World for disadvantage children.
Tim Tebow uses his wealth to help other people reach happiness in their life. He dedicates his time off-season to help make disabled civilians’ dreams come true. His dedication to help bringing a smile to every one's face makes Tim Tebow an iconic person. I still have yet to see a flaw in this young football player. He inspires me to be selfless and help those in need. Tim Tebow helps prove that money can bring selfless power.
