Kindred is the new marketplace that allows people to do good as they go about their daily lives. It’s a new platform that is responding to the increasing calls from consumers who want to give back with their everyday purchases.
Kindred enables its users to share what they love and make genuine recommendations on their social channels, whilst promoting significant savings on some of the world’s top brands and local stores. As people accept advocates’ recommendations, a percentage of these sales goes to the advocate and directly to a charity that they choose.
Kindred is the new way for brands to engage directly with customers and harness the power of word of mouth. It’s creating the new global community of conscientious consumers.
