JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Sept. 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The Tim Tebow Foundation is making a new addition to its Team Tebow program, which encourages people to serve others and make a difference in their communities and beyond. Team Tebow is the foundation's official membership club and it will now also feature an element just for kids.
Team Tebow Kids, which is exclusively a membership club for children ages 12 and under, is aimed at teaching children the importance of service to others and building a foundation on the value in giving back.
Implemented from the vision of NFL quarterback and philanthropist, Tim Tebow, Team Tebow has become a worldwide community focused on serving those in need, right now. Since its launch in January 2012, Team Tebow has grown to more than 17,000 members representing all 50 states and 12 countries.
"We are constantly being blessed by the stories we receive about Team Tebow members serving in their communities and abroad," said Erik Dellenback, Executive Director of the Tim Tebow Foundation. "We look forward to using our Team Tebow Kids club as a way to encourage children to serve in the same way."
Anyone can join Team Tebow by visiting the Tim Tebow Foundation website at www.timtebowfoundation.org. Membership is available for a small donation, with proceeds going towards the worldwide outreach initiatives of the foundation. Each Team Tebow Kids member will receive a Team Tebow Kids T-Shirt, Member ID Tag and Membership Card. Adult members receive a Team Tebow T-Shirt, Car Decal and newsletters. The Tim Tebow Foundation will also highlight photos and stories of service on the foundation's website and social media outlets.
The Tim Tebow Foundation exists to bring Faith, Hope and Love to those needing a brighter day in their darkest hour of need. The foundation accomplishes this mission every day by fulfilling the dreams of children with life-threatening illnesses through the W15H program, building the Tebow CURE Hospital in the Philippines, building Timmy's Playrooms in children's hospitals around the world, supporting more than 850 orphans in five countries and encouraging service to others through Team Tebow.
