WASHINGTON, D.C - American actor Kevin Bacon's SixDegrees.org, a nonprofit organization, is teaming up with SOS Children's Villages USA, the largest orphan and abandoned children’s charity in the world, to raise money for SOS's extraordinary work, using SixDegrees' new platform, 6Tag, to launch the #HomecomingChallenge. SixDegrees.org has designed a web-based platform titled "6Tag" for starting socially driven campaigns to raise financial support, volunteerism, awareness and anything else a charitable organization may need to fulfill its mission.
"In 2017, we directly helped over 2 million vulnerable children and families in 135 countries, including right here in the United States. But right now, there are still 220 million children at risk of growing up alone. We need to do more. I believe this partnership with SixDegrees.org and Kevin Bacon will energize people to contribute to SOS USA so every child has a loving home and the opportunity to reach their potential," explains Neil Ghosh, CEO of SOS USA.
"At SixDegrees, we really try to shed light on charities that are doing extraordinary work," says founder Kevin Bacon. "We wanted to invite more people to join us. With 6Tag, people can start to see how small actions can create real change. As a community, we can gather to create real impact."
