Stars Sign Back on Facebook and Twitter, $1 million Raised for AIDS


Remember when a bunch of celebs signed off Facebook and Twitter on World AIDS Day, Dec. 1, to raise awareness for HIV and AIDS? Well, their goal was not to sign back on until they had raised $1 million for the campaign, and they finally reached it!

The "Digital Death" campaign raised money for the AIDS charity Keep a Child Alive. The public and stars donated half a million dollars to the cause, and pharma billionaire and noted philanthropist Stewart Rahr on Tuesday offered to match that amount.

"From the bottom of my heart, thank you to all of the fans, friends and artists who stood together for this cause and saved real lives," Alicia Keys, one of Keep a Child Alive's founders, said in a statement. "I am humbled by the outpouring of support from everyone."
