"Die" Digitally For Charity

Lady Gaga, Kim Kardashian And More To “Die” Digitally For Charity. Some of Facebook and Twitter’s most popular members are quitting the social network sites to raise money for charity. Lady Gaga, Kim Kardashian, Justin Timberlake, and Alicia Keys are joining Digital Life Sacrifice, a campaign to raise money for Keep a Child Alive. The celebrities have already filmed their “last tweet and testament” videos in preparation for their “death” from the digital world on World AIDS Day, Wednesday. The initiative, organized by Keys’ Keep a Child Alive charity, will see the stars quit their Facebook and Twitter accounts on Wednesday, and won’t log back in until $1 million has been raised. Jennifer Hudson, Usher, Ryan Seacrest, Elijah Wood, Serena Williams, and Keys’ husband, Swizz Beatz, are also joining the innovative campaign. Keep a Child Alive cares for the families, especially children, in Africa affected by the HIV/AIDS. President and co-founder of the charity, Leigh Blake, said, “We’re trying to sort of make the remark: Why do we care so much about the death of one celebrity as opposed to millions and millions of people dying in the place that we’re all from?” He added that Lady Gaga, who has more than 7 million followers on Twitter and almost 24 million Facebook fans, may even be able to raise the $1million “all by herself.
