Stars accept kevin Bacon's #Istayathomefor challenge

Kevin Bacon has used the Six Degrees of Himself game to start a wonderful challenge aiming to prevent the spread of coronavirus!

As stars and regular people across the globe continue to self-quarantine in hopes of curbing the COVID-19 outbreak, the Footloose star has encouraged others to do the same by starting the #IStayHomeFor challenge, which gives people the chance to share why they chose to self-isolate amid the crisis.

In his video, Bacon revealed that his wife of 31 years, Kyra Sedgwick, was the reason he’s staying home. He told his followers on Instagram:

“Hi folks, you know me. I’m technically only six degrees away from you. Right now, like people around the world, I’m staying home because it saves lives and it is the only way we’re going to slow down the spread of this coronavirus. Because the contact that you make with someone who makes contact with someone else that may be what makes somebody’s mom or grandpa or wife sick. Everyone of us has someone who’s worth staying home for.”

The actor explained the challenge a bit more in his caption, writing:

“So if you’re home too like me, post a video or photo with a sign like mine, telling who you are staying home for and ask 6 friends to do the same. Post it with the hashtag #IStayHomeFor so I can see and share. The more folks involved, the merrier – We’re all connected by various degrees (Trust me, I know!) I’m kicking it off with @jimmyfallon @eltonjohn @Brandicarlile @kevinhart4real @ddlovato @davidbeckham – but I encourage YOU ALL to join in too! Let’s use this 6 Degree thing to do some good!”

Such a great idea!

The challenge quickly spread, with Demi Lovato and Elton John posting their reasons for staying home hours later.

Demi, for her part, wrote that she stays home for her “parents,” her “neighbors,” and her “health,” while Elton wrote that he stays home for his husband David Furnish and their two sons, Zachary and Elijah:

David Beckham was also quick to reply, noting he’s “staying at home for Victoria [Beckham] and our kids.”

He shared:

Soon, even more celebs joined the #IStayAtHomeFor campaign, including Millie Bobby Brown, Elle and Dakota Fanning, and Eva Longoria.
