-----------------------------------------

On August 9th, I'll be swimming 10 kilometers in the San Francisco Bay from the Golden Gate Bridge to the Bay Bridge to support a cause I believe in. 

Imagine - just for a second - that your ability to make a living for most of your life was very limited. Pick a reason: developmental disability, old age, lack of education, mental instability, or none or all of the above. Where would you live?

Because if we take a step back, we realize that it's our personal ability to earn a living (or for some, their parents' or ancestor's ability to earn a living) that determines the quality of our housing. Take away that earning potential or savings and then what?

For many in that situation, it can be very bleak; with housing that is crime-ridden, decrepit, crowded, dirty, noisy and drug-infested....or simply no housing at all.

Here's what I think: I don't think that's ok. I think that even if you have or earn very little money you still should get to live in a decent apartment at least; a clean room, in a clean building, with some friends around, low crime, a small kitchen, a good property manager on-site, room for the kids if any, and at a price you could afford.

That's what TNDC is about (www.tndc.org). Tenderloin Neighborhood Development Corporation is a wonderful and effective nonprofit that builds and manages apartment homes for over 3,400 low-income San Franciscans – many of whom would otherwise face a real threat of homelessness.

I'll be swimming 10 kilometers in the San Francisco Bay from the Golden Gate Bridge to the Bay Bridge to support TNDC, and to help provide safe and comfortable housing to very low-income people, seniors, and families.

Will you please sponsor me?
