Every year Tim Tebow auctions off his Heisman trophy to different celebrities, raising money for charities that are near and dear to his heart.

Tebow is well-known for his outstanding football career in the 2000s and also his outspoken Christian faith. He won the notable award back in 2007.

This week during an interview on The Dan Patrick Show, Tebow said, "Every year or every six months, I've used it to auction off for a charity for people to keep in their homes."

Previous short-term owners of the trophy have been country singer Luke Bryan as well as former morning show host Kathie Lee Gifford.

"It is such a cool award that is so prestigious that very few people have ever had the chance to be around it. I'm so grateful. Why have it in your garage when it can be in someone else's living room? And now a lot of kids are being helped with it."

To date, the trophy has garnered $1 million in donations from people's bids. 

"My goal is that it could be the most impactful Heisman one day not by sitting on a shelf… [but by] being on a lot of other shelves and making an impact on a lot of kids' lives."

Tebow was born and spent the first five years of his life in the Philippines as his parents were missionaries. He gives credit to his strong Christian faith to his upbringing. 

"These trophies and these championships and everything, they're awesome, but ultimately, they're not what's most important – there are so many things that are more important. I'm so grateful for that perspective because I'm someone that can totally lean toward win-at-all-costs, do whatever [you] can to drive to compete and win. My parents have just been such impactful, purpose-led heroes in my life."
