Mary og Mikkel Mod Mobning / Mary and Mikkel Against Bullying

It is no secret that Mary has been working against bullying for many years. From the second the Mary Foundation - H.R.H. Crown Princess Mary's Foundation was established in 2007 it have been on her agenda to fight against bullying. The past few years her work has become munch more intense and the Mary Foundation is now also collaboration with many more companies, organizations and foundations in the fight to help children to get a better life without bullying. In 2015 she started to work for the welfare of children in their leisure time and in spare time activities because there are many children who opt out these activities as they do not thrive for instance because of bullying. Spare time activities which should help develop children's social skills which inhibits them instead.  The kids feel lonely and not as a part of the group. This is one way Mary uses her voice; to make sure more children get comfortable and find it a pleasure to participate in spare time activities. With Klubfidusen the fund and Mary is already trying to combat the bad social environment among kids in football clubs in Denmark. The clubs gets tools and special developed material to learn the kids how to get new friends and take action if they see or experience bullying. To sum up Klubfidusen is to enhance the wellbeing and communities and prevent bullying in children's leisure.

A few days ago the Mary Foundation announced that they will be working with MH24 and the Foreningen Mikkel Mod Mobning (MH24 - the association Mikkel Against Bullying) to strengthen the well-being among kids in children's handball clubs in Denmark. Handball player Mikkel Hansen know everything about playing in a club and how difficult it sometimes can be. Mary and Mikkel Hansen now wants to improve the well-being in children's handball clubs because even though it's one of the most popular sports among children (6-12 year old) in Denmark not everybody feel welcome. There need to be space for all of us -a statement we have heard before from Mary. Along with MH24 it's planed that more companies will be involved in the project to develop a detailed welfare program which will be tested in clubs hopefully this year. On Tuesday at 9:25 pm. local time an interview will be broadcasted on TV2 where the Crown Princess and Mikkel Hansen tells much more about the project and how the problem can be solved. Because of the announcement that the Mary Foundation will be working with MH24 and the association Mikkel Against Bullying, I'm sure this is not the last time we are going to hear about this project.

Update: It was a clearly moved Crown Princess who participate in the interview with Mikkel Hansen in the broadcast Tuesday evening. They both pointed out how important it is we do something about social isolation in general but also takes care of the consequences for instance bullying. Mikkel Hansen talks about how important he think it is as a public person to pay attention to issues like these. Mary was very responsive and emphasized that bullying occurs in many different places. Leisure time activities are a new way to draw attention to the problem and she tells that she looks forward to working together with Mikkel and MH24 along with the Mary Foundation.
