SixDegrees.org is a nonprofit that helps musicians, actors, and other influencers surprise local causes in ways that align with personal or professional interests. From fishing to gaming to eating or shopping, we make it easy to do good by turning your everyday activities into an “epic charity tour.”
Kevin Bacon and The Bacon Brothers volunteered their time and demonstrated just how easy it is to do good while you’re eating, drinking, or just looking for an interesting way to explore a new town. In between shows during a 3-day stint in Alexandria, VA, SixDegrees.org facilitated surprise “drop-ins” on local charities and charitable businesses that go above and beyond in connecting people and building community. From donuts to 100-degree garden pop up performances, they made an impact and had a lot of fun.
CityBlossoms cultivates dozens of “kid-driven, kid-driven, community engaging, creative green spaces” across DC and consults other communities to do the same. With just a handful of employees and hundreds of volunteers, they are using gardening to educate and inspire children while bringing neighborhoods together in fascinating new ways.
Kevin Bacon started this epic charity tour by visiting William Ramsey Recreation Center in Alexandria in support of No Kid Hungry, a national campaign encouraging more funding (and availability of funds) to end childhood hunger.
