The subjects of this enlightening docuseries will inspire and impress you, leaving you feeling just a little bit better about the world's fate in coming years. Such amazing teens are excellent role models for kids, and the scope of their causes really wows. As you watch their stories unfold and their relief efforts take shape, you may start to notice similar needs in your own community and feel compelled to get involved. These teens would be the first to tell you that this is the point of The HALO Effect; rather than seeking the limelight for themselves, they're driven by the desire to lead others to follow in their footsteps.

Family-friendly and spilling over with pro-social themes, The HALO Effect is uplifting, motivating family entertainment. Not only can it inspire viewers to get involved in community-building projects of their own, it also raises awareness of issues that might not be front and center where you live. If these concerns are new to young kids in particular, it's a good opportunity to talk about them and how they affect communities as a whole.
