Kevin Bacon, activist, actor and inspiration for the parlor game “Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon,” is celebrating #GivingTuesday by asking fans to create a charitable fundraising campaign for this year’s #GivingTuesday Challenge. Bacon’s organization SixDegrees.org is once again partnering with crowdfunding platform CrowdRise to host the challenge.

Bacon writes in Huffington Post, “In a perfect world every day would be #GivingTuesday, full of the spirit of generosity and paying it forward. That’s the very goal we champion at SixDegrees.org, a social network that makes it easy for you to support your favorite cause.”

Participants in the #GivingTuesday CrowdRise Challenge can raise funds for a cause of their choice. Incentives to participate include a one for one match for the first $60,000 raised, a $1,000 bonus for the first five campaigns to recruit twenty donors, and a $10,000 bonus for the top fundraiser.
