Today, Crown Princess Mary participates in the Mary Foundation's advisor day:
'Råd til Livets' rådgiverdag 2015 - Kongehuset

On the 'Advise for life' advisor day the Crown Princess will hold a speech, and in addition there will be presentations by women who themselves have been abused.

The Mary Foundation's 'Advice for Life' is free advices to women who have been exposed, for example, physical and psychological violence. The women receive free and impartial financial, social and legal advice from the professionals who help them back on the track.

One aim of the project is to break down taboos about violence in relationships that are not only expressed as physical violence. Financial abuse is when the economy is used as leverage to keep the woman in the relationship. In these instances, financial and legal advisors help the women to get an overview of their finances and supports them on the road to stand on their own feet.

'Advice for Life' was launched in February 2009 by the Mary Foundation in cooperation with Mothers Help, the Organization of Women Centre (LOKK), Nykredit, Østifterne and a number of law firms. Since then, the 'Advise for life' has helped around 2,776 women and a few men.

The advice is given at Mødrehjælpen's departments and 18 shelters around the country.

Thanks, Roskilde.

And here is the first picture of Mary arriving: Kronprinsesse Mary lyttede til rådgivere | billedbladet.dk

Råd til livet = (something like) being able to afford to live, offer economical counseling for women who have left an abusive relationship and now have to start on their own with a new life. Sometimes literally not having any more than what they quickly threw into a suitcase. So they have to start all over again with everything.
In some, quite a few cases actually, not least among immigrants, such women have not been used to handle the day to day economy apart from going down to a supermarket to buy necessities.
Such things as paying rent, insurance, heating and so on is new to them, because typically in an abusive relationship the husband makes sure he is in control over the money.
In some cases women discover they more or less unwittingly have signed up for loans and suddenly find themselves in a deep personal debt.

So far 2.700 women have received financial counseling from the Mary Foundation via Råd til livet.

Such an important topic.
Finance is so often use to keep someone under abuse and control.

Thanks Muhler,

The Mary Foundation's advisor meeting was internally - maybe that's why we haven't gotten better coverage from today's event.

A pity, would have liked to hear more.

MaryFonden has published a nice large group picture from today's advisor day:
http://www.maryfonden.dk/files/style...dit-Edit_0.jpg

"It means the world to meet competent, open-minded and warm people who support when violence leaves a human being in chaos. I now have met a number of women who have received help in the 'Advice for Life'. They all have their own history, but one thing is going again: An infinite gratitude that people like You focus on their opportunities and are willing to spend time and effort to support them to make the best choices in their difficult situation."

Crown Princess Mary today as she thanked the many advisers in 'Advice for Life' on the year's Advisor Day.

Here can you read Mary's entire speech:

Wow! How does she always manage to look so good in an effortless way. I can't even manage to look that good on good day. However, I have learnt a lot about fashion since following HRH on these forums.

Thanks, Iceflower

Here is more from BB: Kronprinsesse Mary: Flere børn skal have det godt | billedbladet.dk

As you know the Free From Bullying concept implemented widely in DK, was inspired by an Australian programme.
The Danish version has been spread to a number of countries, who have modified the concept to suit the local problems and cultures.

Today was the first time there was an international seminar for all the countries that have adopted Free From Bullying. Here they will exchange experiences and ideas.

Mary gave the welcoming speech and she said among other: "We are gathered here today, many nationalities, because we have a common obligation - to prevent bullying. We from The Mary Foundation and Save the Children are so pleased that it has ben possible to gather so many, from: Greenland, Estonia, Iceland, Lithuania and the Faroe Islands.
- I hope that the seminar will be interesting and inspiring to you and that it may further your work in order to prevent bullying even more. An environment that is open and accepting leaves room for the individual to thrive - such an environment allow children to be what they are supposed to be - themselves".

The 30 participants in the seminar will later today visit a kindergarten in Copenhagen that has adopted the Free From Bullying concept. - So that'll probably mean pictures.

AFAIK DK schools are obliged to formulate a programme for dealing with bullying, unfortunately not all schools have implemented a dedicated programme like Free From Bullying or something similar.

The Mary Foundation's 'Free Of Bullying' is integrated into both my children's kindergarten and school and it really works. Why I'm not surprised it now also creates international interest.

We have been lucky to get such a Crown Princess.

Information from the Mary Foundation:
"The Mary Foundation's project 'Free of Bullying' was launched in 2007 and since then it has generated international interest because of its approach to combat bullying. This meant that in 2011 we launched the international counterpart 'Free of Bullying' which has helped children in Greenland, Estonia and Iceland with specific tools designed to counteract bullying."

It is. And October means autumn holiday and Halloween in Tivoli. Mary attended the Mary Foundation's seminar in Tivoli Congress Center. Therefore the Halloween decoration in the background.

A beautiful sight when Tivoli is decorated:

Looking in the official calender it now seems like there will be autumn holiday for Mary, Frederik and children. With fits nicely with Christian 10th birthday on next Thursday. And maybe a trip to Halloween-Tivoli?

An how lucky for Christian that his birthday lines up with the holidays
Im sure the kids would enjoy Tivoli, i think pictures came out that they went there for Isabella's birthday (i might be mistaken it for somewhere else)

Plus they usually go to Trend, so I hope they enjoy it. Its been quite a busy week for Frederik and Mary

Thanks for sharing Roskilde. I often think that most theme parks go a bit OTT with their Halloween decorations though Tivoli's are rather tasteful and almost magical. I have Copenhagen on my bucket list of places to travel to and I'd like Tivoli to be one of the first attractions I visit (as well as the royal palaces) if I ever do get the chance to go there.

How terrific! And such a good and important cause. Thanks for posting, polyesco! Hopefully we'll get lots of picture of Mary and Máxima together – I still remember their warm hug at QMII's birthday earlier this year, it seems like they're really enjoying each other's company.

I agree
The Queen's birthday gave us such cute moments with the CP family and the various royals
And of course the excellent State Visit earlier this year from WA and Maxima to Denmark

A very important conference and I like that Mary is not only speaking at it but also the Mary Foundation is giving some workshops
