Tom Brady has played 13 games for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and he already has the state of Florida putting his face on a license plate.
Brady played in 326 games for the New England Patriots, counting the playoffs, winning six Super Bowls, and you don’t see his face on any Massachusetts license plates.
That tells you all you need to know about just how happy the state of Florida is to see its Buccaneers finally making the playoffs for the first time since way back in 2007 and only the third time (with zero playoff wins) since the team won Super Bowl XXXVII in 2002.
There’s also the fact that these new Tom Brady Florida license plates will be benefitting a very good cause: Best Buddies International.
“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. 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,” said Anthony K. Shriver, Founder & CEO of Best Buddies International.
Best Buddies International is a nonprofit organization dedicated to establishing a global volunteer movement that creates opportunities for one-to-one friendships, integrated employment, leadership development and inclusive living for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
Once orders reach 3,000 (which should be zero problem), production on the license plates will officially begin.
Each plate will cost $35 and can be purchased online on the Best Buddies website with $25 of that fee going directly to the charity organization.
“Best Buddies is a fantastic organization with a great message to spread, and I am so proud to support their work,” said Brady. “I hope my involvement as a Global Ambassador will continue to bring attention to the organization’s mission of friendship and inclusion for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.”
Bro move, TB12. Bro move.
