Tim Tebow visited “Good Morning America” to talk about “Night to Shine,” an unforgettable prom night experience for people with special needs that is sponsored by his “Tim Tebow Foundation.”

“Night to Shine” is taking place in more than 200 host churches in 48 states and around the world this Valentine’s Day weekend, giving teens with special needs who are 16 or older their own prom with red carpets, paparazzi and dancing.

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

“It’s about people with special needs, it’s about giving them a voice, it is about celebrating them, it is about loving them and letting them know that their lives matter and that they are special, and giving them the time of their life.”

Last year’s “Night to Shine” event was actually Tebow’s first prom experience in his life. He was home-schooled through high school but was able to play football with a local school in Fort Lauderdale. But he didn’t go to prom.

This event takes place worldwide this weekend.

    YES !! Tim Tebow: THE “Shining Light” vs
    The NFL: Purveyor AND THE Supporter of Darkness!

    Did not watch this “2016 Trendy NFL Superbowl 50 Half Time Garbage”
    and now glad I did not – THE NFL IS OUT OF CONTROL TO THE FAR LEFT:

    Super Bowl 50 halftime show “Controversy”
    As NOW even currently revealed from:

    Following the performance, Beyoncé was criticized by some conservatives for performing a song that they considered to be “anti-police” during the halftime show and for appearing to align herself with the Black Lives Matter movement. Former New York City mayor Rudi Giuliani accused the performance of being anti-police and also criticized Beyoncé’s use of Black Power and Black Panther Party symbolism in her dance routine. “This is football, not Hollywood, and I thought it was really outrageous that she used it as a platform to attack police officers who are the people who protect her and protect us, and keep us alive,” he said.[12] The controversy caused a “#BoycottBeyonce” hashtag on Twitter and protestors announced plans for an “anti-Beyoncé” rally outside of the NFL’s headquarters in New York City.

    The Super Bowl halftime show should consist of two marching bands of the two cities who are in the Super Bowl.

    The main reason I do not watch the Super Bowl is the Hollywood trash and celebrity scum that either preforms or who come to the game. I consider Beyoncé and Lady Gaga trash so no Super Bowl watching for me.

    NFL just wasn’t the same this year after what happened to Tim. The Super Bowl was just about as bad it it could be…between the game itself, and the halftime “show” it was not an enjoyable experience for me. The TV was on, but I was surfing the net most of the evening and just caught glimpses every so often. It was enough for me.
