article imageKevin Bacon and the Six Degrees Leads to Charity

By Mac     Jan 28, 2007 in Entertainment
Kevin Bacon is a genius at turning something "kind of horrifying" into a cause for the good. . .
Kevin Bacon is using his "Six Degrees" game fame to spread information on charities favored by celebrities.
Bacon says he expected the widely known social 'game' which gained fame several years ago - where people connect Kevin Bacon to any film or celeb in the world in six direct connections or less - to die out. He says at first he found it creepy that he could be connected so easily to anyone in Hollywood. But as the game lasted through the years, he started trying to figure ways it could be used for the positive.
Eventually he was inspired to set up Sixdegrees.org. On it, people can check what charities are out there, which are supported by their favorite celebrities, and how to get involved in those charities. There are even direct links to donate for all listed charities.
"A lot of people are really, really strongly connected to what celebrities are doing," Bacon said. "So why not have a place where you could also find out what charities they care about, what causes are important to them, and be able to donate right there?"
This guy is just great. . . I'm a long time fan. Not only is he a bang-up actor, but a dedicated family man, a good musician, and an all around nice guy with a sense of self-effacing humor that is really charming.
Good for you, Kevin!
