2013 Cause Marketing Halo Award Winners

Cause Marketing Forum’s 2013 Conference in Chicago came and went. Sadly, my plans to attend fell flat but there’s always next year! One of the highlights of the gathering are the Cause Marketing Halo Awards.

The Cause Marketing Halo Awards are North American cause marketing’s highest honor — and the subject of an annual special section in Advertising Age. Each year, one company and one nonprofit is recognized for overall excellence in cause marketing with a Golden Halo Award. Halo_logo
