"The Crown Princess visited Julemærkehjemmet Kildemose (Christmas Seal home) this Monday and my daughter was VERY impressed with how lovely a person she is It's great that our royal family is so interested in the whole population and would support up there where it hurts.
She was fortunate to present flowers and show Mary around, but my daughter seemed most impressed with the Crown Princess's naturalness and caring nature.
And as a born royalists I am, I was also a little jealous of my own daughter. "


Again tell how committed Mary is and how many unofficial events and private visits that are behind the scenes.
Tv2 has now published some lovely pictures from Mary's private visit:

TV2 will on next Monday (7th December) send a 50 minutes long tv-programme with the children from the Christmas Seal home 'Kildemose', including Mary visiting them.

The programme "Christmas Seal Home - the struggle for a good childhood" will be send on TV2 at 20.30 pm.

Thank you, Roskilde

Summary of article in Billed Bladet #49, 2015.
Written by Ulrik Ulriksen.

Yes, Mary visited a Christmas Seal home and met three of the children living there. These homes are predominantly for obese children who as a consequence of their obesity have social issues, or whose social issues result in obesity. So the purpose is to get them to slim down. Ensure they meet and hopefully become friends with children in a similar situation and thereby help them to open up. And as a result of all this strengthen their self confidence. - It works to a high degree and has for a century now.

So she went to Kildemose in northern Zealand, where 24 children in the age 7-14 are housed and where they live for up to several months.
Here she met 12 year old Lucas, who has been at the home for a relatively short period and he told Mary: "I've seen how it already develops me and I become much more glad. And not so easily crossed".
Lucas is there to lose weight - (and as one can guess to change his outward behavior).
Mary: "How much have you lost in the five weeks you've been here"?
Lucas: "So far almost eight kilos".

Mary also met 10 year old Emma-Sophie, who is also there to lose weight.
(I try an translate the quotes as close to how the children, being children, express themselves).
Going for a walk in the area with Mary and another girl Emma-Sophie talked about herself.
Mary: "How do you hold on to what you must do"? (I.e. diet, exercise, positive thinking).
Emma-Sophie: "You simply put focus on the food and the exercise and you must simply want this, and if you didn't want it, you shouldn't be up here".

Mary: "What's the most important thing you have learned"?
Emma-Sophie: "That even if you perhaps not think you are that nice looking, or think you are different, you are actually in some way just like each other. There is something you have in common with each other".

Mary: "That's right. That's very well put. We all have something to offer and we are all valuable. We all look differently and we are all different in a way, but that's what makes life different. Imagine if we were all the same. Imagine how boring that would be".

And here the second girl, 14 year old Laura comes in. She's not at the home to lose weight but gain more self-esteem after having been bullied.
She responds: "I've never really thought about that. I've got this habit that each time I think a bad thing about myself, then I also think about three good things about myself".

Mary who apparently connected with Laura: "That's a good tool to have. It's really nice/good. You are beautiful, you are lovely, you have a lot to offer. That one must remember. All the things you've learned here you must remember. You are fine as you are. The most important gift is that you believe in yourself and that you are good enough, and you are".

Mary: "How about your class, do they know you are here at the Christmas Seal home"?
Laura: "Yes, they know. I've send them a letter".

Wen it was time to say goodbye Mary said: "Remember to believe in yourselves, because you are so lovely. You are courageous girls".

Emma-Sophie said afterwards: "It's pretty cool to be told we are courageous. She's really sweet".

Thanks, Iceflower

That's a very good cause to support and put focus on. For more than a 100 years now, this foundation has helped many, many obese children to regain their self-esteem and also install a belief in themselves that they can actually change their situation.
But most importantly, many children have met and formed friendship with other children in a similar situation.

always a special event and a great cause for the foundation to support.

"the patron of the Christmas Seal Foundation revealed HRH Crown Princess today this year's Christmas Seal. On this occasion, met Crown Princess some of the children who every year stay at a Christmas Seal."

CP Mary told that she, Frederik and children this year will spend the Christmas with Frederik's family in Denmark after they spend last Christmas with her family in Australia.

What you non-Danish members can't hear, but as several Danes comments in the DRF's video is how clear and beautiful Mary speaks Danish.

Summary of article in Billed Bladet #44, 2016.
Written by the omnipresent Ulrik Ulriksen.

As you know Mary unveiled this years Christmas Seal stamps and present were children who have or are staying at a Christmas Seal home, where they lose weight, learn about healthy eating and first and foremost get new friends and realize that they are worth something.
Hence the reason why they wore T-shirt with slogans where the negative word was erased, like: I am (not) good enough. I have (no) friends. And so on.
Mary had a chat with the children who afterwards told our reporter what she said. Like Mikkel who said: "She said I should keep believing in myself, and stick to the things I've learned".
Mikkel, aged thirteen, who has been bullied was praised by Mary: "He's very courageous and I think he is really good at putting words to what it has meant to him to have stayed at a Christmas Seal Home. Today he stands stronger than ever before".

Mikkel had previously said: "Fight for what you want. Don't be afraid to tell about your problems to your parents and someone you trust".

But Mary also mentioned how she and her family will spend Christmas this year: "I'm looking forward to a real Danish Christmas this year with the family here in Denmark.
White Christmas has a very special atmosphere and is a different kind o Christmas than the one I grew up with.
In Australia we are very influenced by the English tradition, which also include a white Christmas. So we stick to those traditions, even though it's warm".

- There should be a very good chance Mary will experience a white Christmas this year.

See this weeks BB issue here: https://app.box.com/s/5mjcpyuu0prj1kufpd5s8w67bu3b28w1

Caution!
Fans of Frederik should perhaps skip the pages about Dannebrog, as there is a black and white photo of Frederik in uniform.
