5 Great Videos for Social Change
Designify decided to find some great inspiring videos that promote social change and awareness. These 5 videos below are using a creative way to tell people serious stories (sometimes with a little sense of humor) about social problems. We will try to keep finding “do good” videos to inspire designers and people in general to take action for social good. Creatives will probably find the last video very interesting.

Water Changes Everything
Almost a billion people live without clean drinking water. We call this the water crisis. It’s a crisis because it only starts with water — but water affects everything in life.

We can end the water crisis in our lifetime. But first we have to let everyone know it’s happening. Learn how water changes everything — and share this with everyone you know.
How to Create a World with Less Cancer
The statistics of people who succumb to cancer is daunting but change is proactive–change needs volunteers. This inspired motion graphic from the American Cancer Society is about possibilities achieved through the volition to take action. Scientific research into the etiology of cancer and subsequent prevention only happens when volunteers participate to effect a new reality–one with less cancer.

The Dark side of the chocolate
At what cost comes our chocolate fix? Dark humor in this holiday campaign from Swiss NGO Berne Declaration suggests that even the Easter bunny can’t live with himself after reading the truth about chocolate production. The competitive cocoa market, complicated by politics and conflict, has resulted in an estimated 250 million children working grueling hours, in an unhealthy environment, exposed to cruel treatment. This provocative short hook video leads the viewer to a Facebook petition urging cocoa producers to increase transparency through fair trade practices.
