Stars are sharing on social media who they are staying home for to in an effort to keep everyone safe and healthy.

Bacon got the ball rolling earlier in the week by posting a video on Twitter encouraging people to participate.

"Hey everybody, now it's so important to STAY HOME and keep our distance from others," he tweeted. "Join me and post a video or photo with a sign like this, with #IStayHomeFor, telling who you are staying home for, & tag 6 friends. Let's work together to stay home and keep each other safe."

Fellow celebs including Demi Lovato, David Beckham and Elton John have taken up the challenge.

"There's a lot of things going on in our world right now, but if there's one thing that matters it's spreading love," Lovato wrote in the caption of a photo showing her holding a sign with her reasons for staying home. "#IStayHomeFor my parents, my neighbors and my health."
