The Raising HEL movement is founded by 12 passionate Helsinkian restaurateurs. Our mission is to help build a lively capital city with a booming restaurant culture.

We market local quality food restaurants through actions and campaigns, big and small. We aim for an all-round collaboration between the city of Helsinki and people within the restaurant scene and encourage all our colleagues to keep an open mind and open communication between the restaurants.

A vibrant city is in all of our interests, which is why we want to help all restaurants in Helsinki.


Gift card campaign

Our first activation is ambitious: a gift card campaign with an end goal of getting every person in the Helsinki area to purchase a restaurant gift card.

The Christmas party season is normally the most important time of the year for any restaurant. This year’s a tad different, however. We’re challenging companies to redirect their (most likely) canceled get-together budgets into restaurant gift cards for their employees. We’re also encouraging every individual in Helsinki to gift a card to a friend or family member this Christmas.

A restaurant gift card is a great way to support your favourite restaurant, but also a nice way of encouraging the giftee to try out something new. You can purchase the gift cards online or directly from the restaurants in person. All participating restaurants can be found on this page.
