Demi-Leigh Tebow, Tim Tebow’s wife announced that she will have a birthday party fundraiser in support of human trafficking victims, according to The Western Journal.
Mrs. Tebow seeks to raise $26,000 for human trafficking victims.
Tebow started The Tim Tebow Foundation’s Anti-Human Trafficking Organization.
Allegedly while Demi-Leigh Tebow was sitting in traffic five armed men approached her vehicle.
“I put up my hands, I surrendered.”
“I gave them everything they needed, but the moment I tried running away, the guy on my side of the car grabbed me and he pulled me and he pushed me back into the car yelling at me, ‘Get in, you’re going with us.’”
“And at that moment, I said, ‘No I’m not, I’m not going with you. I don’t care if you shoot me, if you kill me, but I’m not going with you.’”
Mrs. Tebow punched one of the men and began to run through peak traffic in her six-inch heels.
“I probably ended up at the next traffic light when I saw a small, old little car pull over to the side of the road with a young girl telling me, ‘Get in.'”
“And she let me into her car, and she took me to safety.”
“So, you know what, don’t be that person that shoves someone away, that rolls up your car window when someone is begging you for help,” Tebow stated.
“Be that person that leans over and opens up your car door, and lets that person in, and leads them to safety.”
From The Western Journal:
Personal experiences can be a powerful factor in motivating people to take up a cause, and Demi-Leigh Tebow, former NFL quarterback Tim Tebow’s wife, is no exception.
In an Instagram post last month, the 2017 Miss Universe winner announced that she was launching a birthday fundraiser on behalf of human trafficking victims.
In another video that Tebow had shared on social media, she revealed the source of her passion for this particular issue. As it turns out, her desire to help vulnerable people comes from a deeply traumatic experience.
Four years ago and one month after she had won the title of Miss South Africa, the model found herself in desperate need of a rescue.
While she was sitting alone at a traffic light in the car she won from the competition, five armed men suddenly approached her vehicle. Tebow was unsure what they wanted from her, but she decided not to risk her life trying to protect her belongings if that was what they were after.
