Apply design thinking to the domains of activism and philanthropy. Learn about core design principles and explore how these principles are relevant  not to the design of a material product but to the activation of a  social movement.

After Black Friday and Cyber Monday, cultural events to mark massive consumerism, #GivingTuesday is a movement to create a day dedicated to giving, not getting. The campaign led to an increase in online giving of around 90%, inspired over 500,000 tweets and generated over 1.2B media impressions. Endorsed by the White House, Bill Gates, Selena Gomez, and Snoopy, #GivingTuesday aims to reclaim the true spirit of the holidays.
