Halo Effect

Kids are getting up to some really interesting things these days.

Take Sarah Dewitz of Orlando, Florida, for example. At just 15-years-old she runs a charity organization that has thus far collected and distributed half a million books to children and families from low-income neighborhoods (see video, below).

Or Nicholas Cobb, who began collecting toiletries for the needy at the age of 7 and later, as an Eagle Scout project, created a non-profit organization that raises money to purchase coats for homeless families.

Amazing young people doing amazing things, and now their stories are available to inspire everyone thanks to  TeenNick’s Halo Effect.

Each month, the Halo Effect initiative honors a teen who’s making an impact in their community and, moreover, drawing others to their cause. Check it out for yourself, and if you know a teenager who fits the bill you might want to consider nominating them for honor.

In any case, please spread the word about TeenNick’s Halo Effect. You never know who you might inspire.

And to receive information about other great opportunities like this, be sure to bookmark this site and follow DIRECTV Goes to School on Twitter.

NOTE: TeenNick is channel 303 in your DIRECTV SCHOOL CHOICE channel lineup.
