RYE, N.Y., Feb. 14 /CSRwire/ - This Valentine's Day, we celebrate companies and causes working at the intersection of cause and commerce - campaigns that have heart - with the announcement of this year's Halo Award finalists.

Now in its 18th year, the Halo Awards are North America’s highest honor for corporate social initiatives that successfully engage consumers and/or employees.

"Corporate social impact initiatives that do well by doing good are increasingly complex." said Engage for Good President David Hessekiel, "With increased scrutiny from all levels of stakeholders from investors to consumers, gone are the days where simply making a charitable donation or slapping a nonprofit logo on a product is enough." Hessekiel explained. "This year’s Halo finalists showcase many ways that companies and causes join forces to generate financial and social dividends." 

Fifty-seven campaigns were announced today as finalists in 14 Halo Award categories. A Gold and Silver Halo Award winner will be announced in each category at the 2020 Engage for Good Conference in Austin, Texas on May 28. Please join us in congratulating these finalists:
