Numerous celebrities such as Lady GAGA, Justin Timberlake, Jay Sean, Usher, Elijah Wood and Kim Kardashian have all logged out of their social networking guilty pleasures today in commeration with World Aids Day until the Keep A Child Alive charity created by Alicia Keys has been able to raise at least $1 million through donations.
"It's so important to shock you to the point of waking up. It's not that people don't care or it's not that people don't want to do something, it's that they never thought of it quite like that." "This is such a direct and instantly emotional way and a little sarcastic, you know, of a way to get people to pay attention." said Alicia Keys, who has more than 2.6 million followers on Twitter.
If you haven't heard of the Keep A Child Alive charity, the foundation aims to raise money to support families affected by HIV/AIDS in regions such as India and Africa.
