How to Support
Small Businesses

Yesterday I posted this image on my Instagram and I asked for a little help from all of you. I asked if you could help me to discover some independent/small businesses that need some support from us right now and to say you came through would be an understatement. 

I was absolutely overwhelmed with all your shares, tags and suggestions and I'm so excited to be able to share as many as I possibly can here on the blog. 

Right now there are so many people, families and businesses experiencing such uncertainty and they are all acting with grace and positivity, it just makes my heart swell. I'm sorry I can't share every single business (when I started putting this together there were already 1,200 comments after only 3 hours) but I hope you'll take a look, maybe purchase a little something from them or even just give them a follow for now.

And if you don't see something that you are in need of below, then consider ways to support small businesses local to you too. Perhaps purchase gift vouchers you can use when restaurants re-open, leave a glowing review of your tattoo artist for when they come back to work or simply enquire if your favourite coffee shop has adapted and is now offering delivery. 

We're all in this together!

And just a small disclaimer that I have tried my best to share businesses that are actively still delivering goods/services to consumers at this time, as some that were shared had private accounts and/or had stopped taking orders. I have no affiliation with any of the businesses above and bear in mind circumstances are always changing for them right now. However please keep in mind that lots of small business locally to you may be closed for the foreseeable future with no way to continue online/deliveries and would most likely love you to purchase gift cards to support them and their teams. If you'd like to see all of the wonderful businesses people shared with me then you can head over to my post here and check them all out!

Sending lots of love to you all x
