When the Face of Need Backfires: the Impact of Facial Emotional Expression on the Effectiveness of Cause-Related Advertisements
In cause-related advertisements, organizations often display the image of a victim with different facial expressions.

This effect is moderated by skepticism towards cause-related marketing and cause-centrality.
