Nickelodeon USA Unveils Official "The HALO Effect" Website

To celebrate Nickelodeon USA starting to premiere and show "The HALO Effect", a brand-new docu-series hosted by Sydney Park ("Instant Mom") that profiles in every episode a young activist who is making a positive change in his or her community and inspiring others to do the same, on Monday 18th January 2016 at 8:00pm ET/PT, Nick.com has launched the networks all-new official "The HALO Effect" show website to accompany the brand new series, which you can visit here at nick.com/haloeffect!


"The HALO Effect" series builds upon Nickelodeon's successful pro-social year-round initiative of the same name, which launched in 2013 and recognizes one deserving teen every month for their work to help and lead others in the community, with more than 20 teens across the USA to date being honored and receiving more than $100,000 in grants to fund their non-profit organizations, and Nickelodeon's annual "HALO Awards" concert special.

"The HALO Effect" aims to inspire kids and teens to be active leaders in their communities by offering an insider's look at the incredible personal stories of kids who have used their passion and creativity to help those in need. Each 30-minute episode will focus on a ordinary teen who is doing extraordinary things by taking on issues ranging from poverty, to helping military families, to the environment, and will be capped by the profiled teen kicking off a "HALO Effect Challenge," an action or activity encouraging viewers to become a part of the HALO movement by giving them ways to Help and Lead Others (HALO) in their own communities.


The first teen featured in "The HALO Effect" will be Jessica Collins, a 16 year-old from Shelbyville, KY. At the age of 10, she was inspired by the film "The Blindside", and the realization that there are kids who don't have a bed, to create "A Place to Sleep." With the help of her church, family and the generous contributions of local residents who donate funds, beds and their time, this non-profit organization has provided more than 700 families with bed frames, mattresses and bedding.

Nick USA's brand-new official "The HALO Effect" series website features information about Nickelodeon all-new show about its host, Sydney Park, and a super video in which viewers can get to know Jessica Collins, the first "HALO Effect" Champion, and her charity A Place to Sleep!

"The HALO Effect" host Sydney Park is no stranger to HALO – that's why she’s the perfect host for "The HALO Effect"! This "Instant Mom" and "One Crazy Cruise" star first got her HALO on at the 2014 Awards in the epic Log Roll Challenge competition. Then she joined in recognizing all of the champions at the 2015 show. Now watch as Sydney raises her voice in honor of a whole new group of helpers and leaders. Sydney can next be seen in the upcoming independent feature film "The Standoff".

"The HALO Effect" is executive produced by Nick Cannon and NCredible Entertainment, as well as Morgan Spurlock, Richard Arlook, Jeremy Chilnick and Ethan Goldman of Warrior Poets.

Acclaimed Punk Rock Artist John Holmstrom Provides Cover For Issue #7 Of Nickelodeon Magazine

Original Papercutz Press Release via Papercutz.com:

Acclaimed Punk Rock Artist John Holmstrom Provides Cover for Latest Issue of NICKELODEON MAGAZINE

Hey ho, let's go! To an awesome metal concert. In the latest issue of NICKELODEON MAGAZINE (on sale December 28th), Nickelodeon cartoon stars head to a rockin' music spectacular. The Tuff Skulls finally get their big break, opening for the world famous Mega Maidenz. But when S & C enter an air guitar contest at the show, they shred so hard they literally blow the roof off the joint! What happens next? You'll have to pick up the issue to find out.


Of course, if you're going to capture that true rock and roll spirit, it helps to work with artists who are as much a part of the scene as the music themselves. That's why Papercutz reached out John Holmstrom, cover artist for the legendary Ramones' albums "Rocket to Russia" and "Road to Ruin" and a co-founder of the groundbreaking PUNK Magazine.


"My old friend (Papercutz Editor-in-Chief) Jim Salicrup reached out to me because he thought I'd get a kick out of this story. When I read it, I was reminded me of my own early experiences with rock and roll," noted Holmstrom, "So I was happy to contribute a piece that helped convey the fun and excitement of being in a band. And for the record, I think Sanjay and Craig are pretty punk!"


Holmstrom is no stranger to comics , having created Bosko "America's least favorite cartoon character" and contributed comic stripo material to numerous publications including SPIN and HEAVY METAL.


"John is an art and music legend," exclaimed Papercutz Editor-in-Chief Jim Salicrup, "and we're proud to feature his first national magazine cover. There's no doubt in my mind that when the Tuff Skulls finally get signed to major label, they'll be tapping John for some album cover art. Or iTunes art. Or whatever way kids will be interacting with art and music in the near future. No matter what the medium, John's talent will let them know, this stuff rocks!"

NICKELODEON MAGAZINE #7, featuring Holmstrom's cover and the Sanjay and Craig story "Guitarmed and Dangerous" is on sale December 28th at newsstands and bookstores everywhere.
