Tim Tebow hasn’t scored a touchdown this season. But that doesn’t mean he’s not doing amazing things. Just ask one teen from Clifton Park, NY.
Earlier this week, 17-year-old Matt Hardy survived a car accident with a drunk driver that killed two of his friends. Hardy and classmate Bailey Wind, the fourth person in the car, were hospitalized after the crash.
The teens’ friends started two Twitter hashtags, #TebowCallMatt and #MissyCallBailey, urging the Jets quarterback and Olympic swimmer Missy Franklin to call the respective students.
The hashtags got the attention of the Twitter world. Tebow's was mentioned 106,290 times and Franklin’s, 42,483. The hashtags also got the attention of the athletes themselves.

After the call, Matt wasn't the only one who was touched.
"Thanks to everyone who got #TebowCallMatt trending & helped connect us. Matt truly inspired me. God bless y'all,” Tebow tweeted.
Franklin mentioned calling Wind on her Twitter, too.
"Called Bailey and left her a voicemail. Would still love to talk to her. Bailey and her community are in my thoughts and prayers #staystrong," tweeted the gold medalist.
For Michael and Bailey, those calls must have been pretty cool. Even better, both are on the road to recovery.
