Mary @ Christmas Seal Foundation home for kids

Crown Princess Mary visited the Christmas Seal Foundation home at Skælskør, last Wednesday (8 October 2008). Mary is the patron of the Christmas Seal Foundation which raises money to help children through the sale of the annual Christmas Seal. The foundation owns four Christmas Seal Homes where children from 6 to 14 years old can stay for a program of 10 weeks. Every year, the foundation helps 700 children to improve their lives. Current programmes are helping obese children to lose weight and learn healthy habits with ongoing support so the emphasis is on activity during the visit. Mary leads by example!

Mary let herself to be inspired by the beautiful autumn weather and turned her inner child loose on a roundabout. The home which is helping overweight children lose weight in Skælskør had a royal visit on Wednesday...Crown Princess Mary gave the children at the Home helping overweight children lose weight an experience to remember when she happily jumped up on the playground's roundabout and with several of the children she whirred round fast and often...In honour of the occasion Crown Princess Mary's bodyguards were substituted by two children, Jamie and Iben, who accompanied Mary through the whole visit at the home. And for their effort Crown Princess Mary gave them a big hug as the visit concluded. As patron Crown Princess Mary joins in the activities, such as jumping on the trampoline at the Ølsted Home in 2006 and now again...
