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, has launched the networks all-new official "The HALO Effect" show website to accompany the brand new series, which you can visit here at!

"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.
