The Big Help is a community outreach program made famous in 1994 by Nickelodeon. It was a yearly event in which kids from around the country would call in to try to get one of their local parks refurbished by Nickelodeon, the ten with the most votes would get refurbished by Nickelodeon in an eight-hour special.[1] There were special instances like the September 11, 2001 terrorist attack where they had unscheduled specials. In 2008, a sequel emerged called The Big Green Help, which was created to get kids interested in global warming. The name “The Big Help” came back in 2010.
