E2. Donation Versus Adoption: How the Mode of Helping Moderates the Effect of Emotions on Helping

Ads asking for donations depict help-recipients’ sad or happy emotions. We examine if the effect of help-recipients’ emotion on observers’ helping intention varies, depending on the helping mode. We find that the decision to adopt(donate), makes people more self-focused(other-focused) and more(less) likely to help when seeing happy (vs. sad) help-recipients.
