Tim Tebow Asks Fans To Join The Fight Against Human Trafficking: ‘Let’s Not Miss This Opportunity’

By Movieguide® Contributor

Tim Tebow recently took to Instagram to ask his followers to support the TTF Protection Center as he works to combat human trafficking. 

In a recent video, Tebow said, “We take for granted how easily we get to live in peace, free from danger, free from so much fear. So many people don’t, and honestly, never have.”

“There is a lot of people that want to do good, and have just never done anything about it,” Tebow continued. “And I just didn’t want to be one of those people that didn’t do something. I haven’t always protected as much as I should, but let’s not miss this opportunity.”

His caption reads: 

IG fam, so many of us get to go to sleep most nights without much fear of what danger the next day will bring…

We lay our heads down in peace, and yet how rarely do we pause to say thank you to God for such a gift? 

Honestly, I think most of us—myself included–take our freedom for granted. I think we take the peace we live in for granted.

Now, think of the perspective of these girls mentioned in the video. Wouldnt you want people like me and you to act as fast as we could to help bring true love, protection, and care? I believe they are worth it, everything we do, even just for one more life. 

Movieguide® previously reported on Tebow’s foundation: 

Tim Tebow and his foundation are raising money to build the TTF Protection Center in Thailand as a place to protect up to forty girls rescued from human trafficking.

In a recent Instagram video, Tebow shared, “A few years ago, we deepened our fight in this terrible evil in the world of human trafficking and child exploitation. And in the last 365 days, we’re so excited to share with you that we have grown so much and been part of rescuing thousands and building safe homes in so many different countries.”

Movieguide® previously reported on the work Tebow’s foundation does to fight trafficking. “We’re in 67 countries and we’re building more hospitals right now and we’re building more special needs orphanages and villages and rescuing girls from trafficking. And, I just am so passionate about that.”

Tebow launched this newest campaign with RAPHA International, an organization “committed to offering hope and healing to survivors of child slavery and sexual exploitation.”

This home will specifically “provide elevated security for at-risk survivors while their traffickers face prosecution.”

“The Thai government, Thai police have asked our partners in RAPHA International for a protection center because there are so many girls that had been rescued from trafficking,” Tebow explains. However, they “are still in danger with active threats, death threats and prices on their head, just so they can’t testify against their trafficker.”

Tebow believes this is because the traffickers do not want to face justice, and “they are capable of atrocious acts of evil to silence those speaking against them.”

“This protection center will provide love, safety and care for 40 girls at a time,” he shares. “But right now we have to act urgently. There are 15 Girls in Thailand waiting on this home.”

He launched this campaign for his 35th birthday, asking his followers to help contribute to this vital work.

Tebow shares that the protection center will cost $1.3 million, but through his followers’ previous support, his foundation can already commit $600,000 to the project.

He encourages his followers to “be a part of this team that doesn’t look away while they’re in their darkest hour of need.”

The TTF Protection Center will be a place where these victims of human trafficking, exploitation and sexual abuse “can feel love, protected, supported, and have everything they need.”

“I don’t know if you can get much closer to who we are as a foundation than protecting the most vulnerable!” Tebow shared. “It is my hope and prayer that you’ll join us in building the TTF Protection Center.”
