A dad in Seattle, Wash. is hoping his bacon inspired bust of actor Kevin Bacon will help rake in a lot of money for families at a local children's hospital. Dave Lefkow has a daughter who is battling leukemia and is constantly in and out of the hospital.

Lefkow works at a local company that makes bacon salt. He made a bust of Kevin Bacon out of bacon pieces. The piece of art took three months to create.

"We just thought, what if Kevin Bacon was made out of bacon? And that was sort of the first idea. It was just a crazy dream that we have," said Lefkow.

Lefkow said Kevin Bacon supports the idea. On eBay, bidding for the bacon bust reached well over $500.
