While Mary sits cross-legged down on the floor she turns around to the men behind her (including our Minister of Development Rasmus Helveg) and says: "Come, let's see how supple you are"

Thanks Roskilde.

You can see on the video that when Mary says that, it breaks the ice and puts everyone at ease. Mary would knows that it makes for a much better discussion when others in the room feel comfortable. It looks as though the Minister may not be so supple.

The national fundraiser 2014, is on tonight. And I udnerstand there will be some royal presence, whether that is on the show, live, or on a video I don't know.

Anyway, it will be shown on DR1, which means you should be able to watch it outside DK and it also means that video will be available at some point.

This is the webpage with hard facts and background info: - Danmarks Indsamling

Other relief organisations have also set up their own pages on connection with the fundraiser. Look for "Danmarks indsamling".

The headline for the fundraiser this year is: Når mor mangler = When mother is missing/when mother is not there.

We wont be home tonight, so I'll leave it to other Danish members to take over from here.

Article with photo of Princess Mary regarding the fund raising. I believe more money was pledged this year than last. Well done.

Indeed it did. Some 87 million DKK and a record so far. Last year 70-someting million were raised.

DR1 has uploaded the entire show here: Danmarks Indsamling 2014 - Når mor mangler - 01. feb. 2014 | DR1 | DR
Mary is shown in a video lasting a couple of minutes at 03:29:15.
(Thanks MaggieDenmark, for posting you heads-up here, otherwise I would never have been able to find it without watching the entire show. ).

Mary says among other things: When mother is missing the chances of the child surviving deminishes. Certainly the chances making it to a decent life is deminished.
She also said that even small donations help.

The Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary Foundation donated 150.000 DKK.

1£ = 9 DKK.
1€ =7.5 DKK.
1 $ = 5.5 DKK.
(Roughly).

We watched the entire show and the clip with Mary was a fine and quite touching clip. DR had several touching (also some quite beautiful) clips along the way. We for example got to experience a woman bringing a life into the world. The two hosts had visited countries as well - Louise Wolff in Cambodia and Nikolaj Koppel and his daughter in Nepal. They appeared in small clips as well telling about their experiences. During the show there was also shown several small clips with Mary talking about her experiences in Myanmar before the longer clip was shown further into the show. In the small clips Mary told among other things that both she and Frederik is proud to be patrons of the show and that it's a beautiful thing the entire Denmark gather together to help others in need.

Kongehuset.dk has now published the longest clips from the show on their website:
VIDEO: H.K.H. Kronprinsesse besøger Myanmar - Kongehuset

Full translation of what Mary says in the clip:

"I think it's a very appropriate and very very important theme that has been chosen this year. And I'm incredibly happy that it is precisely this theme. When mother is missing disappear or at least decrease the child's chance of survival and its ability to create a better life.
It's hard to look at people who are suffering under the circumstances and these fates which they have been assigned in life.

One should not underestimate how much a little bit of financial support can mean. A good example is a woman who has been given the opportunity to start up a small green shop and she earns probably 3-4 kroner per day with it, but it's just enough to supplement the emergency relief she gets.

There is much discussion about; does this help means anything? But I can only say that everything I have experienced, to see someone get the right help, the right supportive hand, they will embrace it and create something good for them and their families."

Both Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary's Foundation and Queen Margrethe and Prince Henrik's Fundation donated money to the show.

Thanks Iceflower,

And Billedbladet article and video:
VIDEO: Kronprinsesse Mary besøgte teltlejr i Kastrup | Billed Bladet

The UN Convention celebrating its 25th anniversary in 2014 and on that occasion Mary together with the Danish Refugee Council today sat focus on children's rights and life as a refugee child in Myanmar.
In a classroom the children had created a small refugee camp in primitive tent cloths which covered most parts of the classroom and the pupils had done a great job of reaching a real camp result which Mary was very impressed by. It resembled in many ways the miserable conditions she seen in real life in the harsh refugee camps in Jordan and Myanmar.

At the end of the video, we hear 11-year-old Liva and 12-year-old Anton (the two that showed Mary around today) talk about their day with Mary.

Liva says that Mary thought it was good they had been working with the project and that they (the children) with the project had get an eye opener for how life as a refugee is.

Anton says: "Yes, she seems VERY interested! And it was really cool that she came."

Here a some large and nice pictures from today:

Thanks Roskilde

Interesting to listen to Mary in the video. She didn't speak down to the children or use empty praise. She asked questions about their opinion and engaged in a kind of conversation in what they have learned and feel about the plight of refugees.

An article from Folkeskolen.dk

ADDED:

I will like to share this cute little note seen on Billedbladet's Facebook:

A woman writes yesterday:
I wrote some weeks ago if Billedbladet could give me the address to the Crown Prince Couple when I wanted to tell Mary how well I think she has done her whole journey. This morning I received a letter from the court and inside a warm little hand-written letter from Mary (and Josephine who had helped mother) Huge.

Thanks, Iceflower

A gallery, article and video from Royalista: Welcome to our refugee tent, Crown Princess Mary | Royalista
The children had set up a refugee camp at their school.

This picture is depressing: http://royalista.com/60322/welcome-t...ow/image/60404
See the pic with the planche on the wall, with the title "Børnesoldater". The dots mark conflicts where children are being used as soldiers.

Royalista has more about Mary's visit to the school and in particular more about her hair: Crown Princess Mary gets a new curly hairdo | Royalista
So I wonder if this should be moved to the hairstyle thread?
