“I bought the domain name, www.sixdegrees.org, brainstormed with friends and family, and the folks at Network for Good who said, ‘Great, we’ll do it with you’ and created a new way to give. Through this site, people can learn about and support various charities. It’s celebrity-driven, which gives us press attention for the causes. But anyone can put up a badge for their favorite charity.
Doing good work makes you feel good, makes you feel as if you have some control over your life and your future. I have this joke motto: someone asks me, ‘How are you doing?’ and my answer is ‘I’m doing what I can with what I’ve got.’ That can work for everyone.”
- Kevin Bacon discussing his organization SixDegrees.org, in Ingrid Newkirk’s new book, One Can Make a Difference. Make sure you check out the site and go buy the book. Let’s change the world, people!
