Each month, we all always look forward to a new episode of Nickelodeon’s outstanding and incredibly influential show, The HALO Effect, and each episode continues to motivate us even more to do good for others and help make this world a better place. It is always so wonderful to see all of these admirable teens go out of their way to help others and show that we all can do the same!

In an all new episode of The HALO Effect premiering on August 12th at 8:30 PM ET / PT, we are able to see the spectacular Will Lourcey as he helps put an end to childhood hunger by providing meals for underprivileged kids through his organization, FROGS (Friends Reaching Our Goals).

According to the press release, “Lourcey’s interest in childhood hunger and community service began at age seven, when he realized some people in the Fort Worth area were going hungry and did not have access to healthy and affordable food.  After volunteering at a local food bank, Lourcey and a group of friends founded FROGS, a kid-run organization that helps underprivileged kids in his community.  Every month, FROGS works with the local Boys and Girls Club of Greater Fort Worth to host a kids-only dinner club which provides nutritious meals and teaches lessons about nutrition and eating healthy.

Over the past six years, FROGS has provided over 200,000 healthy meals for kids through the Tarrant Area Food Bank and FROGS Dinner Club, helped pack over 80,000 backpacks with food for hungry children through its Backpacks for Kids program, and helped serve over 10,000 families through the Mobile Food Pantry.  Along with the monthly dinner club, Lourcey also runs numerous service projects and fundraisers, and speaks at local schools to inspire kids to give back to their community.  In recognition of his commitment to end childhood hunger, Nickelodeon’s The HALO Effect will award a $10,000 grant to Lourcey’s organization.”

 

In each exceptional episode of The HALO Effect, the profiled teen brings out a “HALO Effect Challenge” encouraging viewers to join in on the cause. Will Lourcey is asking all of you to partake in the “HALO Effect Challenge” by donating canned goods to your local food shelter or posting a photo of you and your favorite healthy meal or snacks on your social media networks by using the hashtag #HALOEffectChallenge.

The HALO Effect is hosted by the remarkable Sydney Park. Don’t forget to tune in to a new episode of The HALO Effect on Friday, August 12th at 8:30 PM ET / PT! If you missed the episode or want to watch it again, special encore episodes will air on Monday, Aug. 15, at 8pm ET/PT on Nicktoons and Saturday, Aug. 20, at 9:30pm ET/PT on TeenNick.
