CHICAGO, May 30 /CSRwire/ - Campaigns that eliminated food waste while reducing hunger, increased bystander CPR efforts, helped protect children with autism who wander and held candid conversations about unconscious bias – all while building stronger businesses - were among the initiatives honored at the 17th annual Halo Awards. 

Twenty-four category-specific winners were selected out of more than 150 entries by Engage for Good at its annual conference.

In addition, REI Co-op and the National Park Foundation each received a Golden Halo Award, Engage for Good’s highest honor, for their long-records of achievement at the intersection of profit and purpose.

Case studies of each winning campaign and profiles of the Golden Halo Award winners can be found at http://engageforgood.com/halo-awards

“We’re delighted to honor these companies and causes that are working together to effectively engage consumers and employees while building business and making a social impact,” said Engage for Good President David Hessekiel.
