    Kevin, my organization would to collaborate with you or potentially get a shout out. Our site is www.thextramile.org, and we love what you're doing with Six Degrees.

  • thankyoumom912

    So I skipped over the article and went to the video first. Am I the only one who didn't realize right away that, that was Kevin Bacon?! Hahaha this is great!!

  • RendezVous

    As a small business owner who regularly supports my local community, this is so refreshing to see. Even as tough as the last few years have been, it's the little everyday moments, relationships with our customers, and fun signs of appreciation like this--that make it all worth it. Thank you GOOD for sharing!

    LOL this is HILARIOUS!!! Great to finally see a celeb stand up for local bizs!

    I thought I had a life-long crush on Kevin Bacon, but now I realize it's always been on Melvin Macon. I'll #supportlocal for you any day, Melvin!

    Great initiative, but can't help but think that in some cases, local ISN'T the answer. We can be more creative than just saying everything we buy should be local. I'm all in favor for small, artisinal business, but how can we be smarter about how we shop than just using absolutes?

  • Lauren TURK

    I love the initiative, and will be participating ! Really glad to see Kevin Bacon using his platform for good, as well :)

  • Lara Rabinovitch

    I love that Kevin Bacon is harnessing the cultural phenomenon around him into actionable change. Amazing!

    Gimmicky motif. The official Small Business Saturday ad was very classic, got to the point of the values very easily and simply.

    • Alessandra Rizzotti

      I think what's nice about this initiative is that it's also supporting nonprofits at the same time.

      • JessRenard

        That is interesting. Well, it's Small Business Saturday. Good point for Yasha below, too.

    This is a great initiative (and an awesome video). I was surprised to see only one local business in Brooklyn listed on the Shift Your Shopping For Good site, and none yet in Manhattan. Looks like we all need to do some work to get the word out so our favorite small businesses participate and everyone benefits. Thanks for sharing!

  • Social Good Agency

    LOVE this!!! Small bizs don't get enough credit for their value to local communities. #supportlocal

  • Alessandra Rizzotti

    That video is hilarious. Would love to see you be super serious about small businesses, Kevin.
