Nickelodeon awarding grants toward a million acts of help.

Throughout 2010, Nickelodeon will award $1M in grants to schools and
community organizations enabling kids around the country to achieve the goal
of a million acts of help. The Big Help Grant Program will support projects
that inspire kids to (1) take care of the environment; (2) lead active,
healthy lives; (3) engage in community service; or (4) improve their
educational experience.
