NEW YORK - MARCH 10, 2016 - Nickelodeon recognizes extraordinary teen Raymond Mohler Jr. for his work with hospitalized children, in a brand-new episode of The HALO Effect, titled "Little Saint Nick," premiering Monday, March 14, at 8:30 p.m. (ET/PT). The episode profiles Mohler, a 17-year-old from Lynbrook, N.Y., who helps bring smiles to the faces of sick children by making hospitals a kid-friendly place. Airing monthly on Nickelodeon, The HALO Effect highlights teens who "help and lead others" (HALO) in their community and inspire others to do the same. "Little Saint Nick" will encore Thursday, March 17, at 7:30 p.m. (ET/PT) on Nicktoons and Saturday, March 19, at 9:30 p.m. (ET/PT) on TeenNick.

Raymond Mohler, Jr. helps children cope with their pain, fear and isolation of being in a hospital by providing fun activities and toys to help keep their minds off their illnesses. Mohler was inspired by his own hospitalization at the age of four, when he developed a rare hip joint disease that left him in a double leg brace for two years. Although his disease was not life threatening, he wanted to help kids who were not as fortunate to go home. On his sixth birthday, Mohler took half of his unwrapped presents to the hospital and gave them out to the kids, earning the nickname "Little Saint Nick." He loved giving back to the kids so much that he created a non-profit organization, the Little Saint Nick Foundation.

The Little Saint Nick Foundation is dedicated to changing the way children view hospitals by making them more kid-friendly. Throughout the year, Mohler holds toy drives, provides gift bags to children, donates electronics to pediatric centers and grants wishes to sick children. Since its inception, the Little Saint Nick Foundation has donated over 500,000 toys, entertainment centers, electronics and wishes to various hospitals. In recognition of his commitment to helping hospitalized children, Nickelodeon's The HALO Effect will award a $10,000 grant to Mohler's 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 Mohler's "HALO Effect Challenge" he is encouraging everyone to post a video of themselves doing a bad dance for a good cause or post a selfie donating a toy to The Salvation Army using #HaloEffectChallenge. Kids and families can visit www.salvationarmyusa.org/halo for fun ways to get involved. For more information on Raymond Mohler, Jr. and his challenge, viewers can visit www.nick.com/haloeffect.

The HALO Effect launched in 2013 as a year-round initiative recognizing one deserving teen every month for their work to help and lead others in their community. The initiative was built upon Nickelodeon's HALO Awards, an annual concert event honoring young community leaders with a grant for their organization and scholarship funds. To date, more than 50 teens across the country have been honored and have received more than $400,000 in grants to fund their non-profit organizations.

The HALO Effect series expands Nickelodeon's ongoing commitment to the HALO movement by giving an in-depth look into the inspirational stories of teens who are eager to share the issues and projects important to them and excited to engage others to achieve impact. The monthly series is hosted by Sydney Park (Instant Mom) and executive produced by Nick Cannon and NCredible Entertainment, as well as Morgan Spurlock, Richard Arlook, Jeremy Chilnick, Matthew Galkin and Ethan Goldman of Warrior Poets.

Nickelodeon, now in its 36th year, is the number-one entertainment brand for kids. It has built a diverse, global business by putting kids first in everything it does. The company includes television programming and production in the United States and around the world, plus consumer products, online, recreation, books and feature films.
