The Corona crisis is a tough challenge for all of us - personally, from a health perspective but also speaking economically. The socially disadvantaged part of our society has been especially affected. Local retailers, such as small neighborhood shops are a good example of such impact. Together with you, we are here to help them.
According to the government's decision, the value-added tax will be reduced by 3 % until the end of the year. Nevertheless, we have decided not to adjust our prices. Instead, we will pass these 3 % directly on to local retailers. We will pledge the 3 % from our online shop to the Stiftung Deutsche Depressionshilfe (German Depression Aid Foundation). We are really looking forward to your contribution!
This is how it works:
local heroes for a thriving community.
Whenever you need a last-minute gift, or you just fancy a stroll around the local streets they are there for you. Now more than ever, the stores and their shopkeepers in your neighborhood need you. Why don't you drop by!? A great deal of FLSK products is waiting for you out there.
Making a difference together - now more than ever.
Already before Corona, depression was one of the most common diseases in Germany. Those suffering from depressions perceive negative things in life more pessimistically than usual and therefore face great challenges due to the fears and difficulties that the COVID-19 crisis brings upon us (find more information here: https://www.deutsche-depressionshilfe.de/corona). The Stiftung Deutsche Depressionshilfe (German Depression Aid Foundation) provides persons affected with direct support through the spread of information and access to a variety of digital services.
Additionally, the foundation offers advice to doctors and psychologists on the best way to treat the disease and, together with the Forschungszentrum Depression (Depression Research Centre), they support and encourage independent research activities in the field.
We are aware that tax reductions serve to stimulate the economy. Nevertheless, we believe that helping the most affected is particularly important in a moment like this. For this reason, we at FLSK have decided to support the Stiftung Deutsche Depressionshilfe (German Depression Aid Foundation) with 3 % of the turnover from our online shop during the period of the VAT reduction.
