The Weekly BAT + Podcast Ep. 43 (May 22, 2020) — Brave’s new Anti-Fingerprinting Defenses 2.0, How to connect your Reddit Community Points (Reddit Vault) to Brave (tutorial), Verizon’s #PayItForwardLIVE campaign includes Brave to support local businesses!

Highlights: Guest AMA with Justin Wilkenfeld, Suzi Wilkenfeld, and Dan I. Sack from Kindhumans, a cause on a mission to make kindness a viral phenomenon

Welcome to the next installment in our series of BAT Community-run AMAs.

The ongoing AMA series on Reddit features various guests from the Brave and BAT teams, and now, guests from projects and causes that Brave collaborates with. 

The most recent AMA took place on May 13th, and featured guests Justin “Hoost” Wilkenfeld (CEO & Co-founder), Suzi Wilkenfeld (President & Co-founder), and Dan I. Sack (Director of Business Operations) from Kindhumans, a cause on a mission to make kindness a viral phenomenon, and to unite and grow the community of kind humans around the world. Justin, Suzi, and Dan fielded both pre-submitted and live questions from Redditors about the work Kindhumans is doing to help people and the environment. This includes their “Kindness. Pass it on” sticker campaign (where every sticker pack purchase funds a tangible act of kindness, such as planting trees or providing safe drinking water), the Kindhumans Shop (which encourages consumers to “Purchase with Purpose” and features curated sustainability-focused products), and their work with Grassroots Aid Partnership (GAP), which sends much needed supplies to communities most impacted by COVID-19.
