|MsSquirrly||When do fictionalized facts matter ?||3||Apr 8 2013, 12:29 PM EDT by MsSquirrly|

Susan Bordo, the author of the new book "The Creation of Anne Boleyn" which is coming out in 2013, has written a piece on this topic and it is posted on our Tudor Times blog here : http://www.thetudorswiki.com/page/The+Tudors+Blog. Check it out and weigh in on your opinions. When do you think fictionalized facts matter and what is your take on books like "Bringing up the bodies" &"The other Boleyn girl" and shows like "The Tudors"?

Hi Tudors Fans !
Fiona here from Self Help Africa,(Irish Charity No:6663; UK Charity No: 298830; we are also a non-profit 501(c) 3 organisation in the United States) Our objective is to offer long-term, sustainable solutions to eradicating poverty in rural Africa. We are currently supporting thousands of women across Africa, who are facing huge challenges on a daily basis to survive and feed their families. For more information visit www.changeherlife.org / www.selfhelpafrica.org .
We recently approached well known artists and asked them to think about what it would be like to walk in the shoes of a rural African woman for a day, and we asked a number of VIPs (and their managers!) if they would consider donating a pair of shoes that would help to get our message across to the public.
The Costume Mill in Dublin very kindly donated the black suede boots worn by JRM playing the role of King Henry VIII in The Tudors, and we are currenly looking to auction them off to the highest bidder.
You can see pictures of the boots on our Facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/inhershoesproject . If you are not in a position to bid but would still like to support the campaign, please click on the link and like the page and also read about more of our work at www.selfhelpafrica.org .
Our In Her Shoes initiative will help us raise funds to support many more women who are desperate for our help.
Thanks for your time, and if you would like to see any more photos or place a bid, please email me at email@example.com . :-)
