Kevin Bacon Seeks Generous Procrastinators; 3 Ways To Give Back This Holiday

WASHINGTON, Dec. 20, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- This December, actor and musician Kevin Bacon has a few ideas for Generous Procrastinators—those of us who wait until the clock runs out on December 31 st to support the causes close to our hearts (and get that tax credit). 

While we deck the halls, light the menorah, prepare the feast of karamu, shop 'til we drop, and ring in the new year, Kevin Bacon reminds us to take a little time to celebrate the good in this small world and give something back before the big ball drops on New Year's Eve. 

For the Generous Procrastinators out there, this is a last-minute chance to make a difference.  Just look around.  There is an opportunity to give on every street corner, at every cash register, and in every other email hitting the email inbox.  Join with Kevin Bacon to answer the call!   

Here are 3 ways you can give back (and don't forget to spread the word and encourage your friends and family to do the same!).


Inspire the women and girls in your life and help Dell match $25,000 in donations to Girl Up, I Am That Girl, and the Tory Burch Foundation on CrowdRise.

Remember to support all your favorite charities before the tax year runs out by making your year-end contributions on We make it easy and convenient to donate to one or multiple organizations in one transaction and we'll even store your donation history for tax season.
