On Tuesday 17 March, Princess Madeleine participated in the Stockholm Auction House's auction in aid of the “My Big Day" foundation. My Big Day raises money partly via auctions and lotteries to help realise the dreams of seriously ill children.

The children, who are aged between 3 and 18 years, are chosen by doctors at various university hospitals around the country. In addition to fulfilling wishes, the foundation also organises group events and camps so that seriously ill children can get a break from their stay in hospital.
