Every year for the past 15 years, a Christmas tree auction has been organized at the Hotel de Paris for the benefit of Action Innocence Monaco. This year again, 37 trees decorated by brands will be put on sale to allow the association to continue its work with the youngest, in the prevention of online pedophilia.

Beginning Monday, December 9th, the lobby of the Hotel de Paris will look like a forest sprinkled with a little magic, since it will be composed of 37 Christmas trees! And December 11th at 6 pm, these trees will be the subject of an auction led by Christie’s, whose total profits will be donated to Action Innocence Monaco. Created in 2002, the association works particularly in the fight against online pedophiles and thus supports many families and children in prevention and information to better protect them. These auctions are also an opportunity to highlight important fieldwork.

Actions carried out in schools

This is the 15th year that the sale takes place for the benefit of Action Innocence Monaco and it should, this time again, allow for reaping generous donations from the participants. Last year, the trees decorated and customized by brands have raised more than 174,000 euros of donations. The association can continue its work by going to schools in Monaco, but also neighboring communities, for interventions in the presence of psychologists.
