Sneak-Peek From Brand-New "The HALO Effect" Episode "Paper For Water", Premiering 6/17 On Nickelodeon USA

To celebrate Nickelodeon USA premiering the next brand-new episode of The HALO Effect, "Paper for Water,", honoring Isabelle and Katherine Adams, two extraordinary sisters who are helping bring accessible clean water to people around the world using their love of origami, on Friday 17th June 2016 at 8:30 p.m. (ET/PT), Nick USA has unveiled a super sneak peek preview from the all-new episode, which you can watch in the fantastic online streaming video clip here on Nick.com!

The brand-new The HALO Effect episode "Paper for Water" (#103) follows the Adams sisters as they create origami ornaments to raise money for a Navajo reservation in need of clean water wells in New Mexico. In the super sneak-peek, "Shopping for Paper", sisters Katherine and Isabelle shop for paper for their origami that will raise money for a reservation that is in desperate need of water. Airing monthly, The HALO Effect highlights teens who "help and lead others" (HALO) in their community and inspire others to do the same. "Paper for Water" will encore Monday, June 20, at 8:00pm (ET/PT) on Nicktoons and Saturday, June 25, at 9:30pm (ET/PT) on TeenNick.

The Adams sisters started their organization, Paper for Water, five years ago after learning that girls in some countries don't attend school because they spend their days hauling water, and that a child dies every 20 seconds from unclean water. They decided to make a change by collecting donations to help build wells in impoverished countries and the United States in exchange for their origami ornaments. Paper for Water partners with other non-profit organizations: Living Water International, to identify where a well should be placed in impoverished countries and which residents will help maintain it, and DIGDEEP to help Indian reservations in the United States gain better access to clean water.

Over the past four years, the Adams sisters have raised nearly $800,000 to fund more than 100 water projects in countries around the world including Ethiopia, Ghana, Liberia, India, Mexico, Peru and Nicaragua. In recognition of their outstanding commitment, Nickelodeon will award a $10,000 grant to the Adams' organization.

In each episode of The HALO Effect, the profiled teen will issue a "HALO Effect Challenge," a call-to-action encouraging inspired viewers to participate in their cause and join the HALO movement. As part of the Adams sister's "HALO Effect Challenge," they are encouraging everyone to make an origami butterfly and take a selfie with it and/or post a photo or video showing how you conserve water using #HALOEffectChallenge.
