Is this the first kind of patronage a member takes up with the Church?
Its nice to see Marie slowly accepting or asked to join new different patronages. Im sure there are a lot more to come.

Summary of article in Billed Bladet #18, 2012.
Afbryder barsel - Interrupts maternity (leave).
Written by Trine Larsen.

Our Marie took a break from her maternity leave the other day to attend a meeting at Nyborg Strand Hotel with a couple of hundred employees and volunteers in Folkekirkens Nødhjælp = the State Church Relief Organisation.
Among those present were also bishop Erik Normann Svendsen, who will baptise little Piaf later this month.
While there she handed out a framed photograph of a woman from Bangladesh to a couple who opened the first recycling shop, for the relief organisation in Aarhus some 40 years ago. (*)
La belle Marie is not a loss for words so she told our reporter: "It means a lot to me to be here today. In order to get to know with the work of Folkekirkens Nødhjælp (**) and because I really would like to be involved in humanitarian work.
I really like the methods of Folkekirkens Nødhjælp and what they stand for and it also means a lot to me that they work all over the world. That's why the meeting today was important, because I could meet the partners from other countries they work with, the sponsors and many of the volunteers who do a fantastic job. And I hope we can work more together very soon, but I'm still on maternity (leave)".

- There is also a portrait of bette Henrik in this week's issue. He will turn three this Friday. And the fair Marie said: "He's a really good boy. So sweet and happy".
He's also fond of his younger sister: "There is no jealusy at all. It's going so well".

I can add that a note said that Princess Benedikte will not attend the christening. She will be in New York 15-23. May, so I guess Joachim and Marie will not go to Sweden for the christening there.

(*) I believe it's the one in Grønnegade. Aarhus being very much a university city with a mulititude of additional other educational facillities is a perfect place for poor students needing cheap furnitures and what not. Among them a young Mrs. Muhler, before she moved in with me.

(**) It's her most resent protection.

A brief summary on what Princess Marie is going to do on her next event taking place June 25, 2012


Quote:
Monday 25 June visit HRH Princess Marie as patron DanChurchAid thrift store in barrels.

The princess will greet the volunteers and be shown around the store before the Princess at. 14.00 is responsible for the opening of the store's new premises.

This year is the 40 years since DCA opened Denmark's first charity shop, and today the organization has 123 thrift stores operated by over 3400 volunteers.

Thrift Shop in Tonder was opened in 1982 and thus this year celebrates 30-year anniversary.

Princess Marie has been a patron of the DCA since 2011 and said the appointment: "I have great respect for DanChurchAid work helping some of the world's poorest people a better life. It is my hope that I can help to tell that it is useless to help both in everyday life, and when disasters occur. "

Thanks, Iceflower

She sure did. Some clothes for girls and she was presented with bedlinen for children made from old cotton shirts.

The town of Tønder (which also means barrels) is located less than three kilometres from Schackenborg. Litterally just down the road. As such Joachim and our Marie is not an uncommon sight in the streets of that town.

I think the charming Marie has lost too much weight, she needs to gain five kilos. It doesnt suit women to be too skinny. Hopefully her diet will be trown out the window during the summer.

ADDED: A gallery from BT: http://www.bt.dk/royale/se-billedern...nbrugsbutikken
The girl in pink in one of the pictures is merely curious. Perhaps she wondered why Marie didn't look like princess? Anyway, it's also a charming picture of how close people could get to Marie end the event. And as usual I couldn't see any police officers.

Summary of article in Billed Bladet #26, 2012.
Købte genbrugstøj til Athena - Bought second-hand clothes for Athena.
Written by Ken Richter.

Our Marie opened a second hand store operated by Folkekirkens Nødhjælp (a charity organisation under the state church) in the town of Tønder just down the road from Schackenborg.
There are now 123 such stores in DK run by Kirkens Nødhjælp. (*)

With the store sesibly located in the pedestrian street of Tønder, Marie cut the ribbon and went inside to browse. A little jumpsuit for babies was picked but dismissed: "She's too portly". (**) But a little skirt would do nicely for Athena: "It doesn't fit her right now, but it's smart".
Marie also found a little shirt for bette Henrik and in all it amounted to 65 DKK. (Very cheap! It's the prize of a good pizza). She paid in cash with 100 DKK, but alas the shopkeeper couldn't give her change. Marie said: "Never mind. I'll come back some other time". (***)
Mary also got a set of bedlinen for Athena, sewn from three mens shirts. (****)
Marie said about the second hand store: "I have previously shopped in second hand stores and I would also do it today.
Of course I'll come back visiting when Athena's babyclothes are too small, then I'll come and hand it in.
Of course I'll also hand over some of my discarded clothes here in the shop, because I hope everyone will help people in need".

The proceed from these stores go to relief for people who are starving, especially in Africa. Last year the stores, managed by 4.300 volunteers created a surplus of 19.5 million DKK = 3.2 million $.

(*) Other similar organisations have similar stores and the quality and very affordable prices makes them a popular alternative to what you can get in supermarkets.

(**) Actually she said "tyk", which means thick. It's a word between chubby and fat. The traditional image of Santa Claus is a "tyk" man.

(***) To pay or get a discount on the next purchase. That's not uncommon in towns and villages here in DK, when you know each other.

(****) As far as I can see with a hideous light pink pattern. The shirts would hang for a loooong time before any gentlemen in the good town of Tønder would buy let alone wear such shirts, so it's a good idea to convert them.

As Patron of the DanChurchAid Princess Marie will travel to Cambodia from October 9 - October 2, 2012.

Through its partners in Cambodia, DanChurchAid supports a wide range of activities in Cambodia since the early 1980s
and Princess Marie will visit various projects like a shelter for women and a training center for street children during
her visit.

Interesting.

That should make this visit the heaviest solo-duty our Marie will have done so far.
She has gained confidence and is really flapping her wings now.

Im starting to really like Marie she comes across as self assured and quietly confident. Her fashion choices have improved a lot.

And we have a gallery of our Marie at the opening of Go4Bunker in BT: Se billederne: Prinsesse Marie på job i Cambodja | www.bt.dk

The Danish company deliver products to the oil industry. Cambodia is a country that very much needs an economical push forward.

Notice the first picture. It must be a nice change for Marie to, for once, be the tallest.
