Six Degrees of Doing Good (or Everybody Loves Bacon)

Kevin Bacon wants to inject a little goodness into our world, and he’s teaming up with Change.org to do it. His organization, Sixdegrees.org, is giving out $10 gift cards, known as “Good Cards,” to everyone who signs a pledge on Change.org to do good.

You don’t have to “like” anything on Facebook, invite your friends to join in, or give away any personal information. All you have to do is promise to do good. No strings attached.

Quite a refreshing approach at a time when so many philanthropic endeavors come with a built-in marketing component.

You can redeem your $10 Good Card to help one of more than a million charities on Bacon’s website – ranging from organizations that promote animal welfare to women’s rights advocates, homeless charities and environmental groups. There’s literally a cause for anyone and everyone. Click here to sign the pledge and get your very own Kevin Bacon-approved Good Card.
