Become a "Guardian angel" of the famous Madeleine church in Paris...

​AND HELP ITS SCULPTURES FIND THEIR BRIGHTNESS AGAIN !

Set up at the heart of Paris landscape, the Madeleine church is a fascinating temple of the romantic sculpture that speaks to and touches every and each of the 500 000 plus visitors who come to admire its impressive silhouette every year!

Unfortunately, over the time, pollution left traces on these exceptional statues that are shaping the building of the Madeleine church. Today, seven of the eleven statues inside the church have been restored to their original brightness, thanks to generous donors, allowing each visitor to discover the smallest details!

BECAUSE WE ALL HAVE A HISTORY WITH MADELEINE CHURCH, ​​LET'S TOGETHER FINISH THE RESTORATION PROGRAM OF THESE STATUES !

The accumulation of dust and soot of wax candles for more than 150 years on the last four statues requires a thorough and meticulous cleaning by brushing (water and abrasive) and steam jet treatment.  Customized scaffoldings must be installed around each statue so the team of restorers can work on each statue.

To continue the restoration phase program on the four major statues we would need to raise 34 000 €:

  • 19 000 € for the restoration of the statues of the MADONNA AND CHILD and the SAVIOR CHRIST,

  • 15 000 € for the restoration of the statues of SAINT AUGUSTIN and SAINTE CLOTILDE.
