Alicia Keys, Other Celebs “Kill” Social Media Identities for HIV/AIDS Charity

The Afro-American Newspapers: "To support Keys’ Keep a Child Alive charity, the stars signed off of social media sites such as Twitter and Facebook. Their Twitter and Facebook sites will remain active with information on how to donate, but the stars themselves will refrain from posting personal updates or new information to their social media profiles while the campaign is underway.

"Supporters can donate $5 or $10 through text messages or through the Keep a Child Alive Web site. Once the charity’s $1 million goal is reached, the stars will resume posting on the sites.

"Just two days after the campaign’s Dec. 1 launch, fans had contributed more than $200,500 to bring their favorites back to 'life.'"
