CHICAGO, Jun. 03 /CSRwire/ - Eradicating malaria, fighting hunger and outfitting classrooms while contributing to the bottom line are among the many challenges tackled by the winners of the eighth annual Cause Marketing Halo Awards.
Twenty-two category-specific awards were presented by the Cause Marketing Forum at its annual conference at the Westin Chicago River North on Thursday, June 3 to campaigns that occurred in whole or in part in 2009. Feeding America and Macy's were singled out for Cause Marketing Golden Halo Awards for their leadership in the field of doing well by doing good.
The most honored campaigns were:
"The Cause Marketing Halo Awards demonstrate the good that can be done when companies embrace causes," said Cause Marketing Forum President David Hessekiel. "It's a competition in which we all win."
"In 1990 cause marketing spending was a bit more than $100 million - this year it is forecast to reach $1.61 billion," said Hessekiel. In addition to its conference and awards program, CMF helps businesses and nonprofits succeed together by producing workshops, teleclasses and causemarketingforum.com, a website rich in case studies, best practices and other resources.
