The Neutral Face of Blue: How Color Can Make Consumers Stay Sensitive

This research investigates how the color of charitable organizations’ logos influences consumers’ willingness to donate. In three studies, the authors show that respondents’ willingness to donate is more sensitive to the number of victims and the victims’ social distance (e.g., nationality) when a charitable organization’s logo is blue than red.
