NEW YORK (AP) - Alicia Keys, Lady Gaga and other celebrities can sign back online, thanks to donations from their fans and a philanthropist.
Keys announced Monday that her charity, Keep a Child Alive, reached its $1 million fundraising goal in honor of last week’s World AIDS Day.
A slew of celebrities signed off digital platforms like Twitter and Facebook last Wednesday and asked their fans to donate to the charity, which supports families affected by HIV and AIDS in Africa and India.
The celebrities could sign back online when the $1 million fundraising goal was met.
The entertainers and their fans raised $500,000, and philanthropist Stewart Rahr matched it.
Participants in the Digital Death campaign included Ryan Seacrest, Justin Timberlake, Usher and Kim Kardashian.
