This year marks the 14th anniversaryof this initiative by the association The Children of Frankie, placed under the High Patronage of H.S.H.

Monegasques, residents and people working in the region are invited to buy the little ball of yellow mousse to place on their vehicles, antenna, hood or interior windshield, to show the support to children in need, a simple way to practice solidarity. Proceeds benefit The Children of Frankie association, and are entirely dedicated to ailing and underprivileged children to improve their daily lives.

Les Enfants de Frankie created by Francien Giraudi
Created and presided by Francien Giraudi, alias Frankie the clown, in 1997, Les Enfants de Frankie has an objective to organize projects and pedagogic activities for ailing and underprivileged youngsters in Monaco and throughout the Provence and French Riviera region, better known as PACA. The association counts with a small but very dedicated staff, the board members, and with the help of more than 150 caring volunteers, plus 350 members, 200 donors and many loyal partners. It has been recognized by the United Nations as an NGO (non-governmental organization) since 2008. They collaborates with hospitals, social services, and more than two hundred institutions that help underprivileged children.
Since its inception the association has assisted more than hundreds of thousands children in need. Even their office building rhymes with their objectives as it is housed in the “Golden Sun” (Le Soleil d’Or), with a team that works long hours so that ideas may turn into projects and ultimately become a reality, bringing smiles to the faces of thousands of suffering children.
Their projects go from organizing the participation of ailing and underprivileged children in sports events like the Monte-Carlo Rolex Masters, AS Monaco football matches, the International Monaco Jumping Competition, the Herculis Athletic competition; or cultural events in the Principality like visits to the Oceanographic Museum, the Exotic Garden, the International TV Festival, as well as playful outings like Easter Egg Hunting and much more. The events are so many and varied that they issue a regular Newsletter called “The Little Journal of Frankie” with all the details to encourage children and their families to participate.
