More of Mary's work behind the scenes (not written in the royal calendar) but nevertheless a very important work and actually right now the top story at BT.dk (one of our country's most read newspapers)

Today, Mary visited 'Mødrehjælpen' (The Mothers Aide) one of her patronages.
The Mary Foundation is also involved with this patronage through their joint project 'Advice for Life.'

Pictures from Maryfonden's facebook site:

Mary meets during today's visit to Mødrehjælpen one of the more than 2,000 women who have received help from the Mary Foundation. The woman tells how the advice has been a turning point in her life.

Article and picture from BT.dk:
De flygter fra voldelig partner: Så mange har Mary hjulpet - Royale | www.bt.dk

Telling that more than 2,000 women now have received counseling from The Mary foundation and Mødrehjælpen's 'Advice for Life.'

The project is aimed at women who have been forced to flee their homes because of a violent partner. 'Advice for Life' is all about that battered women can get advice and guidance from both social, economic adviser and lawyers, so the first and foremost to provide an overview of their situation and then can get on with their lives.

Great job Mary.
Love that they show the behind the scenes work.

Cute picture of Ziggy following Mary : )

This is the kind of pictures we need to see of Frederik's work too.
Right now he is visiting panels on entrepreneurs and innovation of Danish companies in Silicon Valley and all I have seen are pictures on Twitter : (

Not to mention that it's the Mary Foundation's official Facebook page which gives us this information about Mary's work beside her official duties. And it's a relatively new thing. We know Mary has had plenty of behind the scenes work in the Mary Foundation since its inception.

Generally the court of the DRF could be much better... Just look at Frederik's entrepreneur visit to the United States these days. Those pictures and information we get are from Twitter and Facebook posted by either the companies or people he visits.

But yes, great the Mary Foundation via their Facebook page now has begun to tell more about the work Mary do behind the scenes.

Now a little part of Mary's private work in the Mary Foundation was shared with us yesterday and today Mary has uploaded her subsequent thoughts about the meeting with the woman who think the help she recieved in the Mary Foundation was a turning point in her life. She also writes about all the people in the Foundation who get the Mary Foundation to work.

Yes, it's Caroline Heering - she participates in all the meetings. She is member of the board and advisor for Mary.

We are told to picture number one where Mary is a big smile: The Crown Princess presented cheerful the Mary Foundation's new film which the Crown Princess herself have voiced.
http://www.maryfonden.dk/files/style...esidie_137.jpg

Hope they publish the film!

Here we go...

HRH Crown Princess Mary went into the recording studio when the Mary Foundation's new film about the fund's work was being produced. As chairman of the Mary Foundation our Crown Princess tells throughout the 15-minute long film. (It's all in Danish, though)

Picture: https://fbcdn-sphotos-c-a.akamaihd.n...943a369d73535a

It's no secret that I think our Mary is doing a fantastic job as Crown Princess! Neither is it a secret that she is a highly (the most?) respected member of our royal family and this video shows how committed Mary is in her work and how integrated the Mary Foundation has become in the Danish society when we see clips from our biggest news broadcasts underway in the video:

Crown Princess Mary visited the Tietgen Business College in Odense today, October 8, in connection with the Mary Foundation project "Netwerk".

Thanks Iceflower

Here's a little background of Mary's visit today:

Loneliness is not something you flaunt:
Man skilter da ikke med ensomhed - tv2fyn.dk - Fyn

The dream education is in house and the life just around the corner. But the reality isn't always so happy - quite a number of young students feeling lonely.

In a study for the ages 15 and 24 show:

· 8% often feel lonely in their school or educational institution
· 11% consider social well-being in their class as "poor" or "very poor" at baseline.
· 37% consider that they are lonely because they lack confidence and feel they aren't good at anything. (It's many, way too many)
· And whole 60% fear to be lonely.

- There's a lot of focus on that one must succeed socially and you have to be popular. We all know that it isn't that fun to tell you don't really have anyone to be with or that you miss to have friends - it's not fun. So it's not something you flaunt, says Professor Mathias Lasgaard who is doing research in loneliness.

But 32 high schools across the country have tackled the problem. One of them is Tietgen High School - which for the second year in a row trying to prevent students feel lonely.

It's the Mary Foundation which works together with the high schools about the loneliness project and on that occasion Mary today visited the high school.

Interesting.
No leaning back for PET and closer than usual. - But of course there are many people present.

It makes me think of what PET thinking at events where F&M is surrounded by a lot of people in almost a circle around them, such as we saw in Greenland and when children spontaneously hug them, often more than one child at a time. I doubt there is anyone who would do the least harm, but there are crazy people out there...

They don't like it!

Especially as DK is (again) at war, this time against certifiable nutcases. So the general security level has no doubt gone up a notch.

Thanks Muhler. But to lean back might have been a better trick for PET to blend in

Feature from tonight DR news:
TV AVISEN | TV | DR

Joachim (the young boy who is interviewed) said that he didn't know anyone when he started in high school and that he thought "No, this will not go well..." But already the first day he got, along with the rest of the high school, a buddy, as a part of Mary Foundation's "Netwerk".

The high school's lecturer: We can see that after "Netwerk" has been running for nearly two years both the dropouts and the absenteeism among the pupils is reduced.

Mary: Adolescence is a vulnerable period and a particularly vulnerable period to be lonely in. And the switch from elementary school to high school is both exciting but also very challenging and for many it can also be very overwhelming.

I have also experienced it (loneliness) when I lost my mother, I felt like I was walking around in a bubble and I was alone in my grief. I couldn't feel that no one couldn't feel where I was. To act against loneliness, looking at the guy sitting in class and don't make any impact, to take him along, because we all have a responsibility to create a good and safe community.

Joachim: I would have stopped at high school if there hadn't been "Netwerk" because it saves pupils like me who starts alone in a class and don't know anyone.
