Annual Action Innocence Christmas tree sale

Annual Action Innocence Christmas tree sale

By Stephanie Horsman - November 27, 2019

Every holiday season, Action Innocence Monaco creates a nostalgic and charm-filled forest of Christmas trees in the lobby of the Hôtel de Paris to raise money in its fight against crimes against children.

This year, almost 40 of these magically decorated trees will be on display from 9th December. The auction, which will take place on Wednesday 11th December at 6pm at the entry of Hôtel de Paris, will be managed by auctioneer Julien Vincent Brunie of Christie’s and will feature Christmas carols performed by ISM Voices from the International School of Monaco.

Founded in 2002 by Louisette Levy Soussan Azzoaglio, the original goal was to highlight the pitfalls and dangers of child internet use without parental guidance. Today, the association carries on with this work but has expanded in an attempt to make the internet a safer place for kids. They have done this through initiatives educating parents and children about the use of the internet for school and entertainment purposes whilst teaching them to recognise the perils of things such as cyber-bullying and child endangerers and fraudsters. They also offer preventative measures with interventions between clinical psychologists and kids, teens, parents, teachers and health professionals.

In the past, these artistically exquisite trees have fetched thousands of euros, all destined for charity and the safety of our children. The evening is a dazzling event in itself.
