RALEIGH, N.C., Nov. 17, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- | Christian News Service | — Faith Driven Consumer™ (FDC)—representing 41 million spending $2 trillion annually, has earned wide recognition for its groundbreaking 2016 Faith Equality Index (FEI), which rates more than 330 major brands on compatibility with Faith Driven Consumers. Last week, the group was profiled in hundreds of media stories covering its national #ChristmasBUYcott campaign, which is channeling $30 billion in FDC consumer spending toward the most faith-compatible brands. Faith Driven Consumer is also playing a leading role in the viral Starbucks #RedCup story, actively encouraging its community to do business with Dunkin' Donuts (DD)—the brand that released a Christmas "Joy" cup design—affording DD an edge over Starbucks in the marketplace.
Today, FDC is rolling out a brand new Mobile App, both on the Apple and Android platforms, to empower the FDC community to #ChristmasBUYcott on-the-go as 41 million people prepare for #BlackFriday and #CyberMonday. The app enables FDCs to search for brands either by category, or by "2016 Best in Class," the highest-rated brands this Christmas.
"Two weeks ago, the Faith Equality Index made its debut, and the reaction has been overwhelming. Faith Driven Consumers are spreading the word—telling others that, as a community, we reward brands that welcome us," said Chris Stone, founder of Faith Driven Consumer. "Releasing an App is vital in our mobile society, everyone wants to take this information with them everywhere they go. Our new App also empowers the FDC community with the ability to publicly pronounce their buying activity in real time. Our message to brands is clear, we are here, and we will loudly reward you if you welcome, embrace, and celebrate us."
