The Mary Foundation and their Free of Bullying-project
Free of Bullying (Fri for Mobberi in Danish) was launched back in 2007 and was created by the Mary Foundation and Save the Children Denmark (Red Barnet). Their amazing results with preventing bullying has led to an international interested. Then in 2011 they launched the program international under the name Free of Bullying which have helped children in Greenland, Estonia and Island.

Early in the morning Mary arrived to the Tivoli Congress Centre in Copenhagen to attend a international Free of Bullying seminar with her own fund. It was clear how happy Mary was when she arrived and during the day because of the fact that more and more countries want to combat bullying among children. Representatives from Greenland, Estonia, Iceland, Lithuania and the Faroe Islands had traveled to Denmark to cooperate and exchange experience in anti-bullying program Free of Bullying. All the participants were ready to get a couple of good hours. They both had the opportunity to discuss ideas how the different countries best fight again bullying which is the main goal with the Free of Bullying-project made by the Mary Foundation. As far as I know the idea comes from the Australian foundation Alannah and Madeline Foundation which also gave Mary the idea to her own fund. The Crown Princess gave her welcome speech where she told how glad she is that so many countries have taken the initiative to prevent bullying among children in the future. How and with which tools this can be done. I think it was a proved president of the Mary Foundation who got the chance to welcome the 30 representatives. She know that her project works and now other are interested in doing the same. One thing I noticed in her speech was that it is important for Mary to create an environment where children feel good and have the courage to be who they are. Throughout our lives we are affected by the environment that surrounds us, so it is important we feel well and dare to be who we are. It's okay not to be like everyone else.

Later in the afternoon the participants visited a kindergarden in Nørrebro, Copenhagen, to see for themselves how the Free of Bullying-project works in real life. Because of the successful result, the project has now attracted international attention that's why the anti-bullying program has now gone international. It has already helped so many children in inter alia Greenland. Some of these children Mary met a few year ago when she went to Greenland on a visit with the Mary Foundation as their president. I think the program is made for success and I really hope they will be able to help many more children such as young people to a better life without bullying and give them the tools to prevent it. What I'm aware of the project also helps children to know what to do when they see someone being bullied.

At the seminar we saw the most wonderful dressed Mary. Sharp, modern and edgy with a touch of that special 'Mary-dust'. I fell in love with her outfit right away! Everything about it I love. The quote less is more perfectly describe todays outfit. I wouldn't doubt for a second if anyone asked me to wear this. Not for a second. Love the colours - love the match! Some of the best things are often identified after I finish writing my posts which is the same with this new sleeveless coat. All the credit goes to Else-Marie one of my fantastic readers who found the new navy blue vest at 2nd Day! A never worn brand by Mary and is created by the designers of Day Birger Et Mikkelsen. Thank you so much for your help! These sleeveless coats are the most fashionable to buy and wear this autumn, I completely understand why. So stylish. As you know, this is the second time we see her wearing one just in two different colours and lengths. When she wore the Fonnesbech she was quickly voted as the most stylish royal woman, I think she will again. She takes something we see everywhere, in magazines etc. and make it her own. With a white BOSS Hugo Boss shirt and black trousers she made a fantastic combo wearing the sleeveless coat. What a lovely match! Once again she chose her beige/nude Prada handbag and matching new pumps. I'm pretty sure she is wearing beige pumps from the same designer as her bag. Let me know what you think of the model I have found. She accessorizes this look with a golden Orit Elhanti necklace and a Ole Lynggaard ring. I spotted another necklace as well but the pictures published aren't that good to see it. Hopefully we will see some more pictures soon. I have the idea that it is the same necklace you see on the photo below. Let me hear your thoughts. Marianne Dulong is the designer of her golden earrings. The ring and handbag we last saw when she was in Milan shopping some weeks ago.
