"Heleen Bosma: ”Everyone has something they struggle for in life, and my thing is Pippi”"
"the Collection of Pippi Longstocking actors continues to grow."
"Now tell Dutch Heleen Bosma of how everything started."
"– Everyone has something they struggle for in life, and my thing is Pippi."
"it All started with an article in the Dutch newspaper AD. "
"In a story" says Inger Nilsson, who played Pippi Longstocking in the classic film from 1969, about how it was to work as a child actor."
"Among other things, open up about the fact that neither she nor the other actors make any money on the series at the moment."
"It was the Dutch version of Pippi fans, Heleen Bosma and Marjan Tulp to react."
" I was touched by her story. Everyone has something they struggle for in life, and my thing is Pippi, " says Heleen Bosma. "
"She and Marjan Tulp's old colleagues who had not been heard in many years. Now they were met again in their love for the world's strongest girl."
" I saw that she had shared the article so I contacted her and said that I would like to start a donation to Pippi, as a thank you from us dutchmen. "
"Have collected over 220 000 sek"
"all Said and done, and it wasn't long before the modest crowd funding campaign was up on the web."
"our Hope was to collect enough money to be able to invite barndomsidolerna on a nice evening."
"Now has more than 2 400 people donated over 220 000 sek to the actors."
"– It has spread throughout the world, we would never have imagined it."
"When Inger Nilsson was reached by the news of the collection, she was only slightly supported. She considered that the article had vinklats in a way that made her seem more vulnerable than she actually is."
" I am no victim. It is not at all bad for me in any way. Not the other either, she said to Nöjesbladet."
"Heleene Bosma says she has been in touch with the actor and has got a chance to explain why they chose to start the collection."
" We talked on the phone yesterday and she explained that she was surprised because she is accustomed to collecting money to people in need, and that it is not the case with her. But then she said that she understood that in the modern time also can use donations to say thank you, and that this was just a way to thank her. It warmed my heart very much."
"Inger Nilsson said earlier to Nöjesbladet that she is thinking about donating the money to charity. If this becomes the case, it is completely okay with Heelne Bosma."
"– They should enjoy the money in the way they themselves feel. Private things or donate them, it doesn't matter to me. This is money they should have earned a long time ago and I hope they can use them in a way that gives them happiness."
"Heleen Bosma says she partly admires Inger Nilsson for her acting, but also Pippi as a character for her strength and courage."
"And there is a special scene that has made an extra strong impression on her."
"– There's a scene where she is going to clean up and put the scrubbing brushes on her feet. As a child it got me to realize that there are other ways to do things than what we have learned. It is amazing."
"Inger Nilsson says that she still has not decided what she will do with the money, but stresses once again its gratitude."
" I have not come up with anything. I'll have a talk with Per and Maria (Tommy and Annika reds. note.) and see if we should do something together or what we do with it here. They think it is great fun, and I do too. I don't want to seem ungrateful in any way, I am overwhelmed by this."
