Mission Statement

We connect Celebrities with small, grassroots organizations that are on the front lines making their communities better. Through a celebrity drop-in or shout-out, we increase awareness and visibility for hardworking organizations that need support all the while helping the celebrity give back in a positive and thoughtful way.

Description

As you may know, the "Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon" game was created over 20 years ago to link any Hollywood actor or actress (living or dead) to Kevin Bacon in six degrees or less.

Several years after the 6 Degrees game made the rounds on college campuses, Kevin Bacon opened his refrigerator to see Paul Newman’s face staring back at him. The Newman’s Own tomato-sauce label gave Kevin the idea that he could also use his celebrity stature to make a difference. When thinking about how he could do this, he realized the game 'Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon’ could be a perfect fit (somehow the Footloose Foundation just didn’t seem right).

SixDegrees.org is social networking with a social conscience and based in the Washington, DC area.
