Anyone can take part. Prior election campaign experience is not necessary, and even a small amount of help is beneficial.
STAY ON THE BALL
Subscribe to the newsletter (mostly in Finnish) and you will get all of the messages, with news, invitations to events, and calls to action. Under “lisätietoja” (“additional information) on the subscription form for the newsletter, you can let us know what YOU would most like to do. Make your support public if you want your name to be seen in the list of Pekka’s supporters. At the bottom of each e-mail under “päivitä tietosi” (“Update your information”) you can add information or endorse Pekka at any time.
You can also scan the calendar for events.

YOU CAN ALSO DO SOMETHING ON YOUR OWN
You can also campaign on your own. Produce a picture or an information graph, and let others use it on social media. Create a concept that others can also apply. Hang a Pekka poster in the window of your own business. Your imagination is your only limit on the way that you can support the campaign!
Organise a fundraising event. Ask your friends to donate to Pekka here. Even a small collection will help us forward; the campaign needs money, even though we do not believe that money will decide the election. Read more on the funding of the campaign.
