Millennials find it difficult to give to charities, because there are many barriers that prevent them from making regular charitable contributions. This includes Searching for trustworthy organizations and having too many choices & limited knowledge about the organizations.
Across the globe, millennials want to give to charities, but they would want to see a tangible impact and for their donation to be used effectively. They often question the credibility of NGOs before donating. Social influence is critical to erase people's doubt and for them to be able to identify causes that are close to their hearts.

Techy Taylor’s Donation Journey
What Are The Goals?
I decided to sketch some low-fidelity wireframes to validate at the early stage my ideas and concepts. I wanted to represent a quick and easy way to get feedback on the concept and prevent my users from getting distracted by details.
I collaboratively created a moodboard with stakeholders, we had open conversations that helped me understand why they gravitate towards certain designs, solutions, colors, typography and more. ORANGE was the color scheme we decided to go with.
