Current estimates are that more than 40-million victims are trapped in human trafficking – seven in ten of them are women and girls; one in four is a child. Heisman Trophy winner Tim Tebow and his Tim Tebow Foundation are teaming up with Grammy-nominated singer Tauren Wells to help.

Wells wrote the song "All God's Children" (see video below) – and the Tebow Foundation will collect the proceeds from the song.


Tebow came by the anti-trafficking calling honestly. He tells the story of his father, who was preaching in a foreign country and saw four girls for sale. He bought them. Tebow shares the rest of the story:

"And then he called me and said, 'I just bought four girls, and not really sure what to do now.' And I said, 'That's okay, dad. We got your back.' And so we built our first safe home," he tells One News Now.

The former NFL and University of Florida quarterback recently shared his plan with the U.S. attorney general and the governor of Georgia at a roundtable in Atlanta. He calls his effort a rescue mission.

"You see, when you say 'rescue mission,' it puts a timeline on it," Tebow explains. "It's not a non-profit, it's not an organization – it's a rescue mission, because that puts a sense of urgency. We have to live with a sense of urgency."

100% of the proceeds from the song "All God's Children" will go to support the Tim Tebow Foundation's efforts to fight human trafficking.
