About the Charities:
Clothes Off Our Back
The Clothes Off Our Back foundation is a 501c3 organization that hosts charity auctions showcasing today's hottest celebrity attire. Items are put up for bid to the public with proceeds going to benefit children's charities. Clothes Off Our Back was founded by actors and philanthropists Jane Kaczmarek ('Malcolm in the Middle') and Bradley Whitford ('The West Wing,' 'Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip') whose efforts, along with their celebrity and designer friends have helped improve the lives of children across the globe.
http://www.SixDegrees.org was started with the nonprofit Network for Good in January 2007, more than 10 years after the game, 'Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon' made the rounds of college campuses and lived on to be a shorthand term for the small world phenomenon. You've probably heard of the Six Degrees concept. Any one person is connected to any other person through six or fewer relationships, because it's a small world. SixDegrees.org is about using this idea to accomplish something good. It's social networking with a social conscience. Through their web site, you can support your favorite charities by donating or creating fundraising badges -- as well as check out the favorite causes of other people, including celebrities.
The Humane Society
The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) has worked since 1954 to promote the protection of all animals. With nearly ten million members and constituents, The HSUS is the nation's largest and most powerful animal protection organization, working in the United States and abroad to defend the interests of animals. HSUS celebrates the human-animal bond, and they fight animal cruelty and abuse in all of its forms.
The Harbor Foundation
Harbor Foundation is building a bridge to a better tomorrow for today's challenged youth. Reaching out to children across America, our mission is to give opportunity to those who face the daily hardships of a physical disability, an underprivileged environment, or other unique circumstance. The Harbor Foundation's goal is to provide these youth with the education and resources they need to excel in their early years, in hopes that a positive and constructive influence today will help them become an active, educated and contributing member of society tomorrow.
