How You Can Support Us
Life in Riga is a self-funded initiative. If you like what we do, if you have learnt or gained something new through reading the blog or following us on social media, say thanks! We’ve started a coffee and maintenance fund to help cover the costs of hosting the domain, technical maintenance and staying up-to-date with Riga’s event and food scene. Donate here! Cheers.
Partner with Us
Get in touch to discuss collaborations such as sponsored posts and reviews. Ask and we’ll send you a media kit with information about our audience. For us to collaborate, a brand has to align with what Life in Riga stands for. We reserve the right not to respond to proposals, which aren’t a good match e.g. online gambling and stag party organisers.
We Reserve the Right Not to Respond to Certain Emails
We’re not qualified to give financial or legal advice nor can we provide information on, or recommend firms for complex processes like business registration, banking or tax. Also, please don’t email us about rental apartments in Riga.
We’ve provided a resources page to help you find more information about some of the areas that we can’t cover.
