Mary's first patronage was granted to the Danish Christmas Seal Foundation, Julemærkefonden.
The foundation runs 4 homes for children and young people with overweight. There's room for 750 boys and girls who work on getting a healthier life style and regaining self-esteem in a 10 week program. Their stay and guidance at the homes is free from charge. The Julemærkehjemme are funded by the annual sale of "Christmas seals" (stamps) - each year designed by another artist and presented with big media attention.
By granting a patronage, crown princess Mary involves herself with this cause for as long as she's a member of the royal family. She's the "face" of this foundation, giving it extra publicity.
At her first meeting with the foundation she was informed about their working during a 2 hour visit. This took place at the foundation's offices at Brolæggerstræde in Copenhagen.
