Tim Tebow has been a leader on an off the field ever since his collegiate football career began at The University of Florida. The former gator has now focused his attention on domestic human trafficking, and he is not shying away from speaking his mind about it.
On “Don’t @ Me with Dan Dakich,” Tebow talked about the ongoing fight that he has joined alongside the Unknown Project to put a stop to human trafficking in the United States of America. In quotes taken from the podcast and shared by Fox News Digital, Tebow was eloquent and clear as he elaborated on his fight against child abuse.
Tebow began, saying, “Our heart is to try and combat it in any and every way possible to be able to be on the front lines to push back this evil. Our biggest heart right now is with this Unknown campaign because in one of the law enforcement databases there is at least 50,000 boys and girls that have been abused in such severe ways and also, nobody has been able to identify or located them.”
Tebow then spoke about the Christian message that the Unknown Project shares with those who support it. While the victims may not be known to the world, they are God’s children, and Tebow is begging fans to hear that. “That is why this campaign is called the Unknown campaign because our heart is to be able to identify them, to locate them and then be able to rescue them. We just believe every single life is worth us doing everything possible to be able to get to them because we know they’re not unknown to God.”
“They’re known to God and they better be known to us. We better be willing to do everything and anything we can to get to all these precious lives.”
Tebow also spoke about the growing prevalence of human trafficking, an issue that rarely comes to light in the news unless it involves the Epstein case specifically. “It is one of the fastest-growing businesses in the world. A lot of those studies and reports are actually also believed to be underestimated. It is growing. Some of the different campaigns and videos that we actually shot, we’ve done it in neighborhoods that have been really nice because we wanted to say, ‘Look, in this neighborhood, in this area, it’s been right here.’”
He also isn’t afraid to offer some harsh constructive criticism to people who believe that this issue is not common in America, saying, “And you know, sometimes people have to open their eyes. This isn’t just something that’s taking place in a third world country. It is taking place in these third world countries but it is also taking place right here in America.”
Tebow continues to be a moral leader for millions around the country who once idolized him as a football star before learning that he was so much more than that. He has used his platform to effectively share the Gospel, and for that, he is one of the most popular football players of all time.
