Queen Silvia and Princess Madeleine attend the Thank You Gala
Yesterday evening, Queen Silvia and Princess Madeleine are in New York City to host the annual Thank You Gala for World Childhood Foundation.
Back in 1999, Queen Silvia founded World Childhood Foundation. Childhood is a different sort of charity, instead of raising money to fund their own initiatives, they raise money to assist in funding initiatives that were already in effect. Childhood acts as a liaison between donors and community-based organizations and is currently supporting over 100 projects in 17 countries. The vision of Childhood is “to have a world where all children are free from violence, sexual abuse and exploitation.”
The ThankYou Gala is the annual fundraiser for the World Childhood Foundation USA’s programs. The 2019 Gala, marking the foundation’s 20th Anniversary, took place at The Plaza Hotel with Her Majesty Queen Silvia and Her Royal Highness Princess Madeleine in attendance.
As is an annual tradition with this gala, an auction is being held. Items in the auction include a pair of Stockholm Spike Earrings by Ebba Brahe- a pair that already have a royal seal of approval, as Princess Madeleine wore a pair in this style to the Polar Music Prize a few years back.
