We warmly invite you to join us in a unique project that we are preparing for the 100th anniversary of our Republic in 2018: Czech Republic/Czechoslovakia celebrates its Birthday!
Maybe you are asking yourself why so early? Because we believe that it is important to get ready for such a great event well in advance and plan all the activities that will make the celebration a great success.
The concept is simple – We will all be connected at 7 p.m. on the 28th of October 2018 – for a common toast. Be it at home, in your courtyard or in the streets of Czech or foreign towns and cities – with your children, grandma, friends, neighbours or anyone else …. a toast to our Republic and to all of us!
Our wish is to give people a reason to be together again. Offer them an opportunity to meet their virtual friends in person, and reconnect with their neighbours. We are organizing a celebration that will connect people in big cities and remote villages. We also invite local communities, associations, districts and many more to develop with their own local celebrations.
We would like to support you in organizing your own local celebration – through our website www.vyrocirepubliky.cz – where you will be able to find ideas from others, and prepare your own theatre play, exhibition, theme party or anything that you would like to organize in connection with the 100th anniversary!
100 LINDEN AVENUE
An important part of all of the celebrations will be the planting of linden trees. We want to create a new “Linden Avenue”: 100 beautiful linden trees that will last for hundreds and hundreds of years. We plan to organize a competition among cities, villages and private land owners, and together with the people taking part in the celebration, we will select the most suitable place for our “100 Linden Avenue”. Maybe you are already thinking of a suitable place too?
We are gathering financial support for our project on the biggest Czech crowdfunding portal HITHIT (www.hithit.cz/vyrocirepubliky). All financial contributions will be invested in these original celebrations, through which we wish to commemorate the greatest feast that was historically celebrated in our lands.
We would therefore also like to kindly ask you for your support of our crowdfunding campaign. As a reward for your contribution, you can choose beautiful gifts: a commemorative beer glass, an original postcard, but mainly also your own linden tree or your own bench in the “100 Linden Avenue”. We have many gifts available, please see www.hithit.cz/vyrocirepubliky.
Wouldn’t it be nice if you, your friends or family could have its own linden tree or bench in the “100 Linden Avenue” 🙂
The Czech Lion with two tails is our guide in all the campaign. You will find him in our logo – he has become the unifying motif of all of the celebrations.
We believe that these jubilee celebrations offer us a unique opportunity to reflect on who we are, where we are heading, what our real values are. Our Republic deserves a big celebration.
This unique project started on the 16th of October 2017 under the auspices of Spolek Otec vlasti Karel IV., z.s., (Father of the Nation Charles IV. organization) that has already organized and coordinated many original activities to celebrate the 700th anniversary of Charles IV. in 2016.
We wish to celebrate the 100th anniversary with dignity, joy and togetherness! You can find more information at www.vyrocirepubliky.cz.
Please do not hesitate to contact us should you be interested in any further details or if you have some ideas to support the celebrations. We very much look forward to hearing from you!
Thank you for your time and support.
