Kevin Bacon Starts SixDegrees.org For Charity

Published: 2007-01-29
When you mention a movie buff's favourite game, it just might include Six degrees of Kevin Bacon, which is a game that asks you to connect musician-actor Kevin Bacon in six steps to Hollywood talent by whom he's worked with on films.

Bacon has said that he thought the game would faze out like several other trends, and mentioned that he was "kind of horrified at the idea" that he could be connected to any actor in the universe in six steps, but then it got him thinking of how he could use it for good.

Bacon and the nonprofit Network for Good started a website called Sixdegrees.org, which allows users to search more than 1 million charities. Visitors also can see which charities celebrities are supporting financially. There's also a link to an eBay site where people can bid on celebrity merchandise from the Sundance Film Festival.
