Mary visits Christmas Seal home

Crown Princess Mary at the Kildemose institution for overweight children

Today Crown Princess Mary visited a Christmas Seal Home at Kildemose in Ølsted. Mary is the patron of the Christmas Seal Foundation. The Christmas Seal Foundation was founded in 1904 and each year seals (stamps) are sold at Christmas to raise money to help children. The foundation owns four Christmas Seal Homes, where children aged 6-14 stay for 10 weeks and each year the foundation helps 700 children to become oriented to a better and happier life.
