You can shop online, get discounts, earn cash back and donate a percentage of that cash back to a chosen charity all in one place. Sound simple? It really is!
Since our launch in March of this year, we have seen positive growth, exceeding our 2020 targets already. Customers have brought products worth over £3.3M, generating £1.07m in revenue for Kindred and of this amount, just over £470K has been donated to Charities so far (net profit: £31k). Mirroring this, since launch, we have also experienced an explosion in user growth at an ROI of 2:1 on user acquisition costs.
Market Size - There are 2.05 billion online shoppers in 2020, with e-commerce sales predicted to hit $6.5 trillion by 2023.
Trends - 75% of people shop online at least once a month.
Need - As 2020 has been entirely dominated by COVID, charities are predicting a 48% drop in donations. The economy is struggling, money is tight and people are looking for the best deal possible when they shop. Kindred provides our users with better deals and savings for their online shopping, whilst driving donations to the charities they choose.
Investment - Kindred raised £2.1m in Seed funding in 2019 for development of the product and GTM.
We are now looking for funding to scale our operations!
Driven by a desire to make a difference and with a belief that conscious consumption can be a win-win for consumers, brands and charities alike. We came together to support the millions of people around the world that rely on those charities and those donations.
