Tom Brady license plates are about to be a real thing in Florida — and it’s all for a great cause!!!
Florida officials have confirmed … a license plate featuring Tom’s image will go into production in the next few days/weeks as soon as 3,000 people commit to driving with it on their rides.
State officials say it’s part of an awesome idea by Tom’s favorite charity organization, Best Buddies — a nonprofit that helps people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
Best Buddies reps say purchases of the specialty plate will lead to cash for the org … explaining out of the $35 that it costs drivers to buy the plate … $25 will go straight to the foundation.
And, because Tom has had such lengthy ties to the cause … they say it’s all the perfect win-win-win for all parties now that he’s Tampa Bay’s starting QB!
“With his recent move to Florida, we are incredibly excited to team up with long-time Global Ambassador Tom Brady for the new Best Buddies specialty license plate,” the founder and CEO of Best Buddies International, Anthony K. Shriver, said.
“Since 2003, Tom has proven himself to be a committed advocate for individuals with disabilities, and we’re grateful that his commitment to our mission-driven initiatives will continue to create friendships, jobs, leadership development training, and inclusive living opportunities for people with special abilities here in the sunshine state.”
Who woulda thunk Tom Brady would get a special license plate in FLORIDA before FL legends like Dan Marino, Tim Tebow or Deion Sanders!?!
