Project Me&We together with The After School Association, Just Human and the Tuborg Foundation

 

 

"It is noticeable to many young people right now, because they are cut off from much of their social life.


But even before Corona, many young people felt lonely and struggled with mental well-being. That is why, together with Just Human and the Post-schools,
we have set out to contribute to a more socially strong youth generation through the Me & We project.

In the coming school year, the project will be rolled out at 31 secondary schools. We are very much looking forward to that."

"Bullying must be stopped - and it should be easy for schools to target bullying.

That is why we are proud that today - together with 'Børns Vilkår' and 'Save the Children' - we can present the School Force.

The program offers schools a holistic approach to working to strengthen communities, promote school well-being and fight bullying - from 0-10. grade.
It's an approach that we know works!
Experience from abroad shows that anti-bullying efforts involving everyone at and around the school and working at multiple levels at the same time is the most successful.
 
In 2020, we will be implementing the program at selected schools across the country - and from 2021, ALL SCHOOLS can join.
 
The School Force was developed by the Alliance Against Bullying (The Mary Foundation, Children's Terms and Save the Children) in collaboration with Ole Kirk's Foundation,
Tryg Foundation and A.P. Møller and his wife Chastine Mc-Kinney Møller Fund for general purposes."

"Today we are recording for a film about something that strikes at the core of our work.
That everyone has the right to belong and feel as part of something greater than themselves.
That message and work has only become even more relevant with the Corona crisis.
Stay tuned when we release the movie in a few weeks."

Great to see. We must wait and see if it’s the Mary Foundation's own film or they are creating it in collaboration with others, as we have seen before, on a common topic.

"We run together - separately! 🏃♀️🏃♂️💪


Strong children's communities prevent bullying, and that message should come out, although this year we had to cancel Free of Bullying Children's Relay in both Aarhus and Copenhagen.
Today we would have run in Copenhagen, but it was a different race this year.

"New campaign to break the taboo about loneliness among young

But for some people is loneliness a permanent companion. And if loneliness takes hold, it can be harmful to both body and psyche. Among young people, more and more people are expressing their feeling of loneliness. The latest figures show that 12% of young people aged 16-24 are seriously lonely
 
The Mary Foundation is launching the campaign with a film featuring the Crown Princess on why it is so important that we do what we can to bring loneliness to life. In addition, the campaign will consist of various social media content targeted at young people, including a movie and a series of advice for young people on how to reach out to each other and what to do if you feel lonely. The good advice has been prepared in collaboration with Ventilen and Børns Vilkår.
 
The Mary Foundation is working to combat loneliness as one of its three focus areas, based on a vision of a community where everyone experiences belonging. The Mary Foundation works breaking the taboo of loneliness, thereby allowing it to act on loneliness."

"What do we do when the corona restricts us from so much of what we want?

That question we, like so many others, are faced with regularly at this time.
Today we have gathered together in the Mary Foundation's secretariat - with distance (and no handshake 😊) - to talk about alternatives.

At the Mary Foundation, we work to combat social isolation - paradoxically, at a time when social isolation is on everyone's lips and where staying away from communities serves a greater purpose. But it is important to separate social distance and physical distance.

We must not distance ourselves socially, we must still be close to each other, even if we are physically limited. Because we all still need to feel that we belong.

When several of our events that physically bring people together are not possible, we must think creatively today and into the future so that that part of our work can continue without compromising our joint health. Among other things, we have recently done with the campaign fåøjepåensomhed.dk.

And fortunately, our projects in schools, day care centers, hospitals, shelters and after-school centers continue, and we - like the rest of Denmark - continue to put our heads down to find alternatives to everything we can not right now.

- H.R.H. The Crown Princess

8. September - A video

 

"2 out of 3 shelters in Denmark often or very often experience that the children arrive without their belongings.
according to a survey conducted by Epinion for the Mary Foundation.
Nearly 2,000 children come to the shelter each year, and many of them come to the shelter without their toys, clothes and other belongings.
Together with LOKK - National Organization of Women's Shelters and Ole Kirk's Foundation, we distribute backpacks to the children to cover practical needs, but the backpacks are also used as a pedagogical tool by the staff at the shelters.
This week they are sent out to shelters in Denmark, Greenland and the Faroe Islands."

"Welcome to Troels Boldt Rømer, who has been appointed new board member of the Mary Foundation.

I am very pleased that Troels has agreed to be part of the Mary Foundation's board and thus contribute to our work to combat social isolation.
Even with his young age, Troels has many years of experience with association and social work, previously as chairman of Danish School Students and today as chairman of the Youth Red Cross, volunteer work and much more. I am convinced that Troels can contribute with input, good ideas and sparring, e.g. when it comes to how we can become even better at reaching the young target audience with our efforts.

We on the board and in the Mary Foundation's secretariat look forward to the future collaboration.

- H.R.H. The Crown Princess"

"Yesterday, in the Mary Foundation, we had a visit from our youth panel to talk about the well-being of young people during corona. And not least about ideas and recommendations for solutions.


It was an inspiring and intense conversation about how corona and the restrictions that have come with it have had a huge impact on young people's lives. I was particularly touched by the young people's consideration and compassion for some of the groups who are having the most difficulty and who feel most lonely at this time. And I was very uplifted by their many ideas for what we can do - both to fight loneliness and create well-being among young people in the time to come.

- H.R.H. The Crown Princess"

Happy December 1st 💝 Christmas is the feast of hearts, and this year, more than ever, we need to reach out and be there for each other - even though we may not be physically together. Sometimes it doesn't take much to show another person that you are thinking of him or her - that they are in your heart. Who do you want to send a special greeting to?

 

We can not be together, but you are in my heart

 Who is your angel?

 

"The angel is a symbol of someone who makes a difference to others. One that lifts you up when you need it most. Sometimes it doesn't take much for someone to become an angel in one's life - maybe just for a little while. An unexpected phone call, a loving greeting or a helping hand in everyday life. The small things can make a big difference, and can evoke joy and hope - in a difficult time. The Christmas season is a perfect time to appreciate those who make daily life and life warmer and brighter. "

This year, the Mary Foundation makes its special donation to the Danish People's Aid, which distributes Christmas aid to single parents and their children every year.

Due to the corona, the Danish People's Aid has received more applicants for Christmas aid this year than ever before.

 

Each year, H.R.H. Crown Princess Mary donates the Foundation's special donation to a project or organization that helps people who are in a vulnerable position.
This year, the Crown Princess has chosen that the special annual donation will go to the Danish People's Aid's Christmas aid for single parents. With the donation of DKK 300,000, Danish People's Aid can help 230 single parents and their children to get better through Christmas. A record number of single parents have applied for Christmas aid from the Danish People's Aid this year, many of whom say that the corona crisis has made their financial situation worse.
 
"Christmas is the children's celebration, we say. But for some families in Denmark, Christmas can be a difficult time. And it seems that this year - due to the corona crisis - there are even more families with children than usual who need a helping hand. In the Mary Foundation, we would like to support the Danish People's Aid's work to help vulnerable families better through Christmas, ”the Crown Princess says.
 
The Danish People's Aid is pleased that the Crown Princess has chosen to support their work this Christmas and for the donation from the Mary Foundation: "We had hoped to see a decrease in applications for Christmas aid this year. But unfortunately that has not happened. more applicants have come in and many of them report that their financial situation has worsened due to corona and some have lost their jobs on that basis. We are very pleased with the donation from the Mary Foundation. It is a great helping hand and a gesture for which we are very grateful. With the help, at least 450 more children can have a better Christmas ", says Klaus Nørlem, Secretary General of the Danish People's Aid.

Who deserves a star?

 

"When people come forward and break the silence about something that is difficult, it makes a difference for many - not just for themselves.

Their courage to stand up and talk about their vulnerability creates understanding, hope and is a starting point for creating change.

 

This year has been a different year and a tough year for many. I will also look back on a year where many have shown their humanity and courage.

 

I have met Mads, a young man of 18 years, who had the courage to talk about his own loneliness, to inspire others to get help. Through our work with loneliness during the corona, many young people have come forward and told their stories, and I am impressed by their courage and willingness to make a difference.

For it is not easy to talk about loneliness.

 

They all deserve a star"

Merry Christmas from the Mary Foundation! 🎄

 

This year's Christmas lunch in the Mary Foundation's secretariat at a time when virtual meetings and now also festivities are a reality.

 

It's far from the same as being seen and toasting with each other in the same room, but it's a really nice alternative that spreads joy and togetherness in a time where we can all feel very isolated from the outside world.

 

Our Chairman H.R.H. The Crown Princess also stopped by and said thank you for the year that has passed.

 

We all wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year with the wish that everyone stays in until we can gather again ❤️

"In the Mary Foundation, we look with concern at what the pandemic could mean for loneliness among Danes.

 

I think there are many who in the past year have had the feeling of loneliness in earnest - perhaps for the first time. Others may have become even more socially isolated than they already were. We all have a responsibility to help fight loneliness. Even a small thing can make a big difference for another human being. And it often does not take much to feel seen and loved. That you feel that you mean something to someone. We all need that. Reaching out to someone you think might need it can make a big difference. In this way, we can all contribute to the loneliness not being allowed to take hold of even more people. ”

It is perhaps a little old-fashioned, but I'm still happy with my paper calendar alongside the digital. It gives me a good overview. As you can see, it looks a bit boring right now. But even though physical meetings have been canceled and a lot of events postponed indefinitely, there is still plenty to tackle with our work in the Mary Foundation.

 

At the weekly status meeting in the Mary Foundation's management, we talked, among other things, about a new study on the Danes' knowledge of partner violence, which we have just published. Among other things, it shows that many people have a good understanding of how complex partner violence is. That's really positive.

 

But we can also see that there is still a need for information. We are therefore continuing to work on this. Too many children, women and men live in families with partner violence. If we break with taboos and touch anxiety, we contribute to more people being able to get help.

"Yesterday  (Added: 11. February) I met again with our youth panel - this time digitally - to talk about how they feel during the second lockdown.

I was very touched by the meeting.

 

It was clear that since we last met in October, the young people have become much more pressured by the situation they are in. And the mood at the meeting was different and more burdened this time.

 

Young people are finding it harder and harder to see an end to it all. They struggle to maintain both motivation and spirit, and loneliness has begun to fill more for more of them. There was undoubtedly less optimism to be traced in the panel this time, but there were small lights and an exemplary focus on those who are having the hardest time.

 

Some of the young people mention, among other things, that the good that may come out of this is that in future we can talk more openly about loneliness. Many thanks to the young people in our panel for sharing your thoughts, experiences and good advice with us at the Mary Foundation. We will convey and pass on your messages in the time to come. It is important that your voices are heard.

 

- H.R.H. The Crown Princess

As chairman of @mary_fonden, Her Royal Highness the Crown Princess spoke yesterday with the fund's youth panel on the wellbeing of young people during the lockdown. In the autumn, the Mary Foundation put together a panel of 10 young people aged 18-24, who during the corona crisis share thoughts, experiences and good advice to combat unhappines and loneliness during this time. At the digital meeting yesterday, the young people talked about their challenges in maintaining their motivation and spirit, and about beginnin loneliness that fills more and more for more of them.
