When Kevin Bacon first heard about the game, “Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon,” he was mortified, but then he turned it into something good: a charitable website, naturally named Bacon officially announced his website at the Sundance Film Festival back in January and sincehas raised nearly $700,000 for charities. Now Bacon has teamed up with Hanes to create the official t-shirt. In honor of the shirt, and Hanes are awarding up to $10,000 to the six people most successful at connecting with friends and family via the Internet to raise funds for their favorite charities. Learn more about the award and get your own Six Degrees t-shirt, $20, at

He sure is a handsome man. It’s wonderful how he turned a mortifying situation into a chance to raise money for charities. Oh, I also like the t-shirt.

The whole “6 degrees of Kevin Bacon” started in the early 90s on college campuses. Kevin Bacon was apparently chosen because he’s made a lot of films (although there are actors with even more films), which makes him a good starting point to link to other actors/actresses.

Bravo to Kevin Bacon… this magazine should focus more on actors that have something to give back to the community rather than focusing on other stars (Lindsey Lohan) who are moving train wrecks! I think this is great he’s great! Thanks People for doing a section on a positive person in Hollywood!
