Athlete, author, and announcer, Tim Tebow, is known for many things, most recently, it’s the charitable side of the talented athlete, communicator, and leader. Turns out Tim Tebow has raised over $1 million dollars by auctioning off the Heisman Trophy he won as quarterback of the Florida Gators to various people. 

Dan Patrick reported on Twitter, “Tim Tebow doesn’t have his Heisman Trophy. He actually hasn’t had it for the last 8 years, as he’s been auctioning it off for charity. Most notably to country star @LukeBryan and @KathieLGifford.

 

“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,” Tebow told Patrick. “It is such a cool award that is so prestigious and that very few people ever have the chance to be around it.

Tebow sees the trophy as an opportunity to help others, something he learned while growing up on the mission field with his parents in the Philippines.

“Why have it in your garage when it could be in someone else’s living room and now a lot of kids are being helped with it.”

When not doing charitable and ministry work, Tebow works as a sports analyst for ESPN.
