Everyone has a story, and every story makes each person so unique and so fantastic in their own way. In another all new and incredibly inspiring episode of Nickelodeon’s spectacular show, The HALO Effect, the extraordinary and admirable teen that will be profiled is Princeton Carter whose work with his organization “My Brother’s Keeper NOLA” helps bring out the brave, courageous, and awe-inspiring stories of military veterans. The heart-warming and magnificent episode will air on Friday, October 14th at 9:00 PM ET / PT.
According to the press release, “Carter was inspired to help people in his community after Hurricane Katrina damaged his city and left millions of people without homes. Through the tragedy, Carter discovered the importance of community and was inspired to create “My Brother’s Keeper NOLA,” an organization whose mission is to help bring hope to the homeless, hungry, military veterans, women and children in New Orleans and the surrounding communities in need. The organization’s newest program was born out of learning that over 20 million military veterans are living in the U.S. with stories of bravery that have never been told or documented. Hoping to preserve veterans’ legacies for future generations, Carter records their heroic stories and uploads them to the Library of Congress’ website.”
We are and will forever be always so grateful for everything that those who serve our country do. Already, Princeton Carter’s organization, “My Brother’s Keeper NOLA” has provided over $30,000 in resources for military families and more than 500 items including clothing, toys, and books for those in need in his community. In honor of all that Princeton Carter has done with his organization to help bring out the remarkable stories of veterans, Nickelodeon will be awarding his organization a $10,000 grant.
With each outstanding episode of The HALO Effect, the profiled teen brings out an exciting #HALOEffectChallenge to get viewers up and ready to HALO as well. Princeton Carter is asking all of you to record a story about a person who is important in your life and / or take a selfie with him / her and post it on social media using #HALOEffectChallenge.
