HALO stands for Helping And Leading Others. The HALO Effect highlights kids who can make the world a better place, and inspire us to do the same! Every month we’ll follow incredible stories of kids just like you who have used their passion and creativity to help those in need. This month’s champion is Stephanie Quintero! Along with her brother, Stephanie founded Chicos and Kids. Their organization educates, supports, and inspires underprivileged and immigrant children by connecting them with teen mentors in her hometown of Gaithersburg, Maryland. Ordinary kids doing extraordinary things – that’s The HALO Effect!
