Helping out small businesses – A-lehdet joins the cause, and you can do the same!
The coronavirus crisis has led many companies into trouble, and small businesses in particular are struggling.

Suomen Yrittäjät represents Finnish SMEs and has launched a campaign called #autapientä (‘#helpthesmall’), encouraging consumers to favour small domestic businesses, who are suffering because of the pandemic. A-lehdet supports the campaign by giving it media space free of charge in its digital channels and magazines.

Everyone can help

The campaign reminds people that all of us can help small businesses survive. There are many ways to do it: Do your shopping in small, domestic online stores, purchase gift vouchers for services to be used later, order food from your local restaurant to be delivered to your home and favour local and domestic businesses. Even small purchases made in Finnish SMEs can have a huge impact. Making smart and careful choices and working together towards a common goal are vital right now.

Join the cause and help small businesses!
