My name is Phil Zahn and I have had the incredible privilege to work directly with SixDegrees.org on a campaign to bring hope and healing to the families effected by the Paradise CA fires.
In Partnership with Sackcloth & Ashes, our team traveled to CA to share a message of hope, unity, and love with many individuals and families. Not only did the executive Director (Stacy Huston) of Six Degrees give support and logistical help during the campaign, (schedule, video, social, press) she actually came with us! We spoke at a Homeless shelter, handed out donation Sackcloth & Ashes blankets, and joined a community meeting at the local church which has become a refuge for the city.
On a completely separate trip in Park City, UT during the campaign Kevin Bacon himself joined us at a different shelter to greet the friends staying there, hand out blankets personally, and build relationships with those in attendance. This obviously goes far above and beyond any expectations that we could have laid out in our initial discussions about working together ;)
Working with SixDegrees.org has been an overwhelming treat to our team, and we cannot say enough about their organization, and personal touch.

We love SixDegrees.org they have supported School on Wheels for several years! We know we can count on them to advocate for students experiencing homelessness.
I’ve worked with and advised many NGOs over the years. What I appreciate the most about SixDegrees is that they support a wide variety of causes. In following their work, I find their openness in showing up for all different types of causes refreshing. Who doesn’t love the concept that we are all connected and we all have a responsibility to one another to sometimes just show up and roll up our sleeves? Good work SixDegrees. Hope to continue to see more from you.
I attended an event with Sixdegrees in Annapolis, MD last year. It was at a little small business on Main street. Kevin Bacon surprised a local charity and the students that are in their music program. They brought so much joy to our little community. It's the little things that matters and they get it!
I have personally witnessed SixDegrees in action! SixDegrees really cares about the causes they get involved in. The events they plan are always very successful. They have raised countless dollars and been personally responsible for hundreds of volunteer man-hours to help small grassroots organizations throughout the country. I have volunteered and helped raise money at several of their events including a Karaoke event benefiting the local police department and they are always very well planned and put together. SixDegrees is the best!
I've been to several of the SixDegrees.org pop-ups in the DC area. They are always fun, energetic and well run! The looks on people's faces when the band comes out is priceless and they raise awareness for so many important causes! They also do a great job at using social media to maximize exposure of each event. They really help increase visibility of these small, local charities!
I have been honored to witness sixdegrees.org in action on multiple occasions. Every time I have been so impressed by Kevin and Michael's generosity and unselfishness. They love giving back and helping local communities wherever they travel. Their creative efforts not only put needed funds in the hands of hard-working non-profits, but bring joy and inspiration to so many individuals. SixDegrees.org strengthens communities and improves life for so many people. It is a fantastic organization led by remarkable individuals.
I have volunteered at several SixDegree events. They are a great nonprofit because they use the recognition from celebrities to help local causes and grassroots charities. Furthermore, they encourage people to be celebrities of their own and utilize the gifts we all possess to make positive impact in each other’s lives.
I've been volunteering for 6Degrees for almost a year and can say that working with this organization has been incredibly rewarding. The work we do to strengthen community bonds and spread kindness has been inspirational. The mission of 6Degrees is simple and easy to relate to, therefore, a real impact is made at the first level of interaction between our followers and their communities!
We partnered with SixDegrees.org to honor and recognize our brave officers who responded to the Simpson Park shooting in June of 2017. Kevin Bacon and his brother, Michael, were a huge hit for our Karaoke with COPS! The officers in the department said it was the best fundraiser we have ever done. So much so, we are continuing to hold Karaoke with COPS each year with a guest singer. SixDegress.org does so much for the community.
Sometimes in the world of kind deeds and non profits, it can be a bit of an maze, with questions such as “well does this help a cause I care about?” “What makes this organization different from the others?” Etc. What makes SixDegrees.org is it’s wonderful and unique approach to sharing organizations ad causes, even giving smaller voices the opportunity to be heard. If there’s a denim drive or if there’s a need for a certain type of blood in local blood drives, I’ve been proud to see SixDegrees.org not only mention them, but even engage and ask more questions about them. This has helped give a larger platform to smaller groups or causes, that may have gotten lost in the shuffle a bit on social media. I applaud the good SixDegrees.org does and look forward to continued involvment and engagement with it in the future.
