2010 Halo Awards: Herold Charles & Joshua Hall!

2010 Halo Awards: Herold Charles & Joshua Hall!

Meet Joshua Hall and Herold Charles, two more of the 2010 Halo Award nominees!

The HALO Awards recognize deserving teens who are philanthropic leaders in their communities and were conceived, hosted and executive produced by TeenNick Chairman Nick Cannon.

Each teen honoree was surprised by a visit from Nick and, in partnership with EIF, awarded a grant for their organization, a scholarship fund and an once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to meet and connect with a celebrity who shares a similar passion for their cause.

Check out Joshua and Herold‘s bios and 10+ pics inside…

The 2010 HALO Awards will premiere Friday, December 10th @ 8PM ET/PT on TeenNick, followed by an encore on Nick at Nite at 9PM.

Herold Charles, 18, Miami, Fla. ” Originally from Jacmel, Haiti, Herold moved to Miami five years ago for a better education. While his family was spared from the earthquake that hit Haiti last January, he dedicated his time to help 25 families in the U.S. locate their loved ones. Since then, he was worked with Humanity Road, Help Haiti Heal and Help Chile Heal to help those who continue to suffer. His HALO match is Wyclef Jean who also keeps the plight of Haiti alive with continued rebuilding efforts and by providing scholarships to Haitian children through his Yéle Haiti Foundation.

Joshua Hall, 17, Brooklyn, N.Y. ” During his freshman year in high school, Joshua was chosen to be a part of Journey for Change: Empowering Youth Through Global Service and was selected to travel to Ghana where he spent 10 days with children enslaved in the fishing industry. This first-hand experience is what compels Joshua to use his voice to advocate for the eradication of child slavery and for basic human rights for all children. His HALO match is Ashton Kutcher who started the DNA Foundation (www.demiandashton.org) to raise awareness about child sex slavery by changing cultural stereotypes that facilitate this horrific problem and rehabilitate innocent victims.

    Good job Nick. Someone else in a similar vein, although through the Arts, is Olivia Wilde:


  • good-one

    Over on JJ, there is a comment rating system of plus and minus. Hate comments seem to get high “plus” ratings and celeb love comments seem to get the most negative ratings. To me it reveals the already mass-diseased, mass-psychosis of society. People express that those not like them are somehow, “off”. That opinion is generally called “Philistinism”, where one regards one’s self as “normal”, and regards everyone different as weird or abnormal.

    I imagined that if such people were to see the suffering of others, in say a place such as Haiti, (who we are in danger of becoming like, as the economy collapses and the hate and our social upheaval increases), they would probably react something like, “Why can’t those people be like me? It must be their fault that they are not.”

    So I was pleased to see that Olivia Wilde is also co-producing this film:
