“Clowns visit hospitals to give sick children the opportunity to laugh and have fun, so as to help them cope with their illness.

“Mécénat Chirurgie Cardiaque helps disadvantaged children suffering from heart defects to come to France for operations they can't have in their own country. ” A huge charity Christmas market is held in Paris every year, with the money raised used to fund surgical operations.

In 2011, the Louvre acquired Crana’ch’s Les Trois Grâces,, thanks to the support of Pylones. Inspired by this painting, the designer SanFroid created the “Misses”, a trio of dainty, highly unusual spoons.
“In total, 7,200 donors, alongside around ten businesses, came together to make this exceptional acquisition a reality. Les Trois Grâces was unveiled during an emotional ceremony at the museum on 1 March 2011, in the presence of the Minister for Culture, Frédéric Mitterrand. They are doubtless destined to become a museum icon, alongside the Mona Lisa and the Nike of Samothrace. »
