The Tim Tebow Foundation is launching a fundraiser for the recently announced Tebow CURE Hospital in the Philippines. The total expense of building the hospital is $3.1 million, and with only $700,000 left towards that goal, the foundation is asking fans of Tim Tebow and the Broncos to consider joining them in this effort.
The fundraiser, “Dollar Day,” lasts all day today, and every Bronocos and Tebow fan is encouraged to donate $1 each to help the foundation realize its goal.
Donations can be made online at TimTebowFoundation.org and all donors will get receipts for their donations. All proceeds will go directly toward the Tebow CURE Hospital, a combined effort between the Tim Tebow Foundation and CURE International.
“I am so thankful for my fans and the support they’ve always shown me,” said Tebow. “I am excited for this opportunity for my fans to join me in a project that is so close to my heart.”
The Tebow CURE Hospital will be a 30-bed surgical facility focusing primarily on orthopedics with over half of the surgeries expected to be charitable. The groundbreaking will be held in January 2012, and the hospital is expected to open in mid-2013. The hospital, which is CURE’s first in the Philippines and 12th worldwide, will be on the island of Mindanao, a particularly poor area of the Philippines. The hospital will also house a Timmy’s Playroom, which will provide faith, hope and love to children before and after their surgeries. It will be the Tim Tebow Foundation’s first international playroom.
