Direct-to-consumer (DTC) brands are engaging in philanthropic activism to offer help amid the coronavirus crisis. DHVANI, in one case, aims to provide a free mask to Americans to help slow the pandemic’s spread after rolling out an earlier initiative to support reforestation efforts in Australia. And brands are finding new ways to get in front of customers through efforts such as partnerships, with cinema group Curzon teaming with Uber Eats. All this, Today in Data.
