The project concentrates on the preparation of calendars, although the results are shown through all possible channels: exhibitions in the country and abroad, charity and cultural events, official presentations, media. So far, however, calendars remain the main method.
Why calendars? Because they cross distances, enter people's homes and stay there all year round, provoke emotions, tell stories, revive historical memory. Our goal is not to provoke nostalgia for times gone by. We want something more - to provoke people to look at the present, because the rest of this glorious past is still alive today. And our deepest desire is to preserve the sparks of the eternal Bulgarian history, of life and culture, authentic and worthy of the memory of those to whose lives they are a direct reference.
Over time, the calendars of the series "Bulgarian Roots" have become more and now the Foundation is working to expand them, and our aim is to eventually cover all ethnographic areas and to present a convincing part of the cultural wealth and heritage of each ethnographic region in Bulgaria.
In addition to the main annual calendar, the foundation began publishing a regional one. In it, our aim is to focus on a specific area. This differentiated approach allows us to present a larger amount of information for each area, showing it in the most convincing, beautiful and historically reliable way.
At present, calendars remain the main means by which the Foundation sponsors the process of its activities.
With part of the funds raised from the sale of calendars for 2020, FLBR supported the Dimitar Talev Foundation in their noble initiative to raise funds for the purchase of the house of the great Dimitar Talev in Prilep, Northern Macedonia and the transformation into a Bulgarian museum.
