From Charitable Fundraising Platforms to Refugee Search Engines

These November 2015 activism trends range from charitable fundraising platforms to refugee search engines. Addressing social issues like feminism, racial inequality and LGBT rights, these campaigns, publicity stunts and community programs aim to make the world a better place.

Standouts include body positive merit badges -- Australian artist and activist Natalie Perkins' line of badges encourage self acceptance and a positive body image at any size. Another favorite is a collection of anti-bullying emojis that target teens and millennials who are tech-savvy and known to communicate with the expressive graphics along with Google's initiative that donates to refugee charities with every web search.

Other November 2015 activism trends include life-sized jungle cat cakes that are artful, delicious and most importantly supportive of organizations that help protect endangered species popullations across the globe.
