Most people know Tony Robbins from his inspiring books, business talks, and infomercials on TV, but now the motivational speaker is lending a helping hand to three humble nuns on the streets of San Francisco.

They were in dire straits; having lived out of their building and fed hundreds of homeless people in the last eight years, the landlord declared that if the nuns wanted to stay, they’d either have to pay rent with a 60% increase or get out.


Tony read about the plight of the Fraternite Notre Dame Mary of Nazareth Soup Kitchen in the Chronicle newspaper and decided to stop by while he was in the Bay area on Friday.

By the end of an hour-long chat with the nuns, Tony was so impressed by their compassion, he handed them a $25,000 check and a promise that the landlord would not try to evict them for the next year. He also promised them $25,000 in advance for the following year, so they could find a new place to continue their holy work.

Tony’s kindness has spurred others to create several crowdfunding pages to support the sisters’ work because their only source of income is selling their pastries at local farmers markets.

Marilyn Richardson, president of the Mason-McDuffie Mortgage Corp. in San Ramon, set up one of the pages that within two days had raised more than $10,000.

“It was such a really sad story. It touched me,” Richardson told the Chronicle. “We are in the mortgage business, and we understand how the rental market has gone crazy, so it seemed like helping them was a perfect thing for us to do.”
