Quarterback, baseball player and all-round star Tim Tebow has always had other things on his mind besides sports. He’s a major philanthropist and a big believer in the power of charitable giving. So, when he turned 32 years old, he made an unusual request. It involved his own organization and the stories of 150 very sick children.

The famous football player set up the Tim Tebow Foundation in 2010. It was simply the next step in a life that had been packed to the brim with charitable work. His desire to help others came from, Tebow always maintained, a childhood spent in the Philippines as the son of Christian missionaries.
