All you Kevin Bacon fans out there – this is your chance to remove all those degrees of separation between you and Kevin. If you played the “Kevin bacon Game” growing up, you know that every celebrity in Hollywood can be linked to Kevin Bacon is six or fewer relationships. Now Kevin Bacon wants to be linked to all you “everyday” celebrities supporting worthy causes across America. He is building a network of people making a difference in this small world and invites you to join him.
If you join Kevin Bacon’s Pepsi Refresh Project, Kevin will call you to welcome you to the Six Degrees team. In addition, SixDegrees.org will send you a $10 Good Card (a gift card for charity) to spend as a donation to the charity of your choice – anything from your local animal shelter, to a charity fighting a disease that has touched your family, to rebuilding projects in Haiti.
In return, Kevin asks you to tell up to 6 people about the campaign and how to pay it forward by sending Good Cards to their family and friends. Together, the Six Degrees network can multiply the Pepsi Refresh grant to send lots of dollars to great causes that accomplish good in this small world.
About SixDegrees.org – Kevin Bacon started SixDegrees.org with the nonprofit Network for Good in January 2007, more than 10 years after the game ‘Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon’ made the rounds of college campuses and lived on to be a shorthand term for the small world phenomenon. Through this web site, you can support your favorite charities by donating or creating fundraising badges — as well as check out the favorite causes of other people, including celebrities. You can also pay it forward with Good Cards® – gift cards for charity that can be redeemed as a donation to more than 1 million charities.
