Halo Awards 2021

May 27, 2021 /CSRwire/ - Campaigns that helped teachers and students bridge the digital divide, repurposed sports stadiums into socially-distanced blood donation centers, built artificial intelligence programs to more efficiently serve LGBTQ youth and encouraged consumers to share – not hoard – toilet paper - all while building stronger businesses - were among the initiatives recently honored at the 19th annual Halo Awards. 

Twenty category-specific winners were selected out of more than 130 entries by Engage for Good at its annual conference.

In addition, PayPal and CARE USA 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 honored to elevate these companies and causes that are working together to effectively engage consumers and employees while building business and making a social impact – especially given the tough circumstances of 2020,” said Engage for Good President David Hessekiel.

Leveraging AI to Save Young LGBTQ Lives  - a partnership between Google.org and The Trevor Project was named the “Best of The Best” honoree, an award sponsored by social impact agency For Momentum.

For Momentum’s President & Founder Mollye Rhea commented, “The Best of the Best Halo Award recognizes a campaign that demonstrates excellence and best practices in social impact engagement. The Google.org/Trevor partnership was the clear winner for their authentic commitment and collaboration. The initiative revolutionized technology to strengthen services for LGBTQ youth seeking care in crisis situations. Through Google.org’s support, Trevor’s enhanced systems literally produced life-saving results by reducing wait times and expanding capabilities to serve significantly more youth in crisis each month. Bravo!”
