Tim Tebow, former NFL player, formed TimTebowFoundation.org. This organization helped organize an event called “Night to Shine” for special needs teenagers. These teens will get dinner and dancing at a local church. This same scenario is happening in 49 other churches in 26 states around the country. Additionally, two other ministries have made this event possible in Nairobi, Kenya and Jinja, Uganda.
Way to go Tim and the other ministries. Helping these teenagers feel special even for one night will go a long way. Teenage mental illness, including depression, may be higher than anyone realizes. Bullying often occurs to these teens and they may feel like no one cares. This event may make them feel special and important. We all want that.
These teens may not be able to go to their school’s prom for various reasons. This event gives them a chance to enjoy a night and feel special.
