Know Someone Who Totally Deserves a HALO?


Teens who are leading others to join their movement and take action on causes that are important to them? Teens with unique, powerful stories who took their personal experiences and, through service, made it meaningful on a bigger level--a level that really made a difference? That's awesome. We would love to hear about them. And there's a chance we'll shine the HALO spotlight on them!
