Inspired by the TeenNick HALO Awards, the HALO Effect is a way for visitors to TeenNick.com to help others. Complete "Quests" on this site, and you'll earn points that you can trade in for a donation to DonorsChoose.org.
DonorsChoose.org is a site where school teachers from all over the United States post requests for supplies they need (like scientific equipment, journals for a writing class, or musical instruments for the school band). If you earn enough HALO Effect coins, you'll be able to make a $5 donation to any project you choose.
It's an awesome way to support education, and it's easy, too. All you have to do is use this site! Check out the blue bar at the top of this page to get started.
