Keep a Child Alive

I'm sure that you all know about the Keep a Child Alive foundation and the Digital Death campaign that they launched. Unfortunately, the campaign is not going as smoothly as they had planned. Celebrities such as Kim Kardashian, Alicia Keys, Usher, and even the queen of Twitter, Lady Gaga, have all chosen to sacrifice their "digital lives" in order to raise money for the Keep a Child Alive foundation. Now, with all this star power, and all of their followers (Lady Gaga alone has over 7 million), you would think that raising $1,000,000 would not be all that difficult, however they have only been able to raise, collectively, a little over $200,000. Why is that? So far all the celebrities have kept their word and have stayed away from Twitter and Facebook until the one million dollars has been raised, but that seems like it may take a long time. All I ask is that if you are able to donate any more, go to www.buylife.org and donate just one dollar to which ever celebrity you choose. If everyone can donate one dollar then we can make a difference, and before you ask, the answer is "yes" I will be donating too. Lets do it!
