Six Degrees of Donating

We've been looking for a good way to collect donations from people who want to donate to the New Orleans area rebuilding effort. I didn't want to give to only one charity, because there are a lot of charities doing a lot of really good work in NOLA. Each one is focusing on a different aspect of rebuilding, whether it be building houses, parks or futures.

I heard about this Kevin Bacon site It allows people to make a charity badge and become a "celebrity" for their own causes. This seemed the fasted way for me to become a celebrity AND also a good way to give people an opportunity to support a variety of charities in New Orleans.

Also, Six Degrees is running a promotional thing where the "celebrity" who raises the most money over the next few months will have all their donation amounts matched by Kevin Bacon. So then. Get on that donating people. Let's empty Bacon's bank account.
