There are moments when you just have to jump into the cold water. I hate swimming, but as the Swimathon is targeting very good purposes (like community building, responsibility for the society, civil activity) and is supporting great organisations and programs (like the Ferencváros Community Foundation, the initiative for community foundations in Hungary KözösALAPON, the campaign for civil organisation MACI) I overcome myself and courageously jump into the water. For several years active in the German community foundations sector I experienced how much good can be done by working together. I would be very grateful if you would support the Swimathon in spirit and in money with me here. I am swimming for the Hungarian civil society: “Now it’s sink or swim!”. The task I gave myself is to swim 66 meters within 10 minutes. My special offer as a teaser for you all: If we manage to raise 307.000 HUF (1000€) until June 18th, I will – after a little live concert – swim in my Elvis-costume!
