Keep a Child Alive: Digital Death

Published on .

Most Popular

In honor of World AIDS Day on December 1, a handful of Hollywood's most popular Twitter users will give up their digital lives to help give real life to African and Indian HIV/AIDS sufferers, as part of the Digital Death campaign for Keep a Child Alive, created out of TBWA/Chiat/Day, New York. Celebrities like Justin Timberlake, Lady Gaga, Kim Kardashian and Usher will remove themselves from all social networking platforms, including Twitter and Facebook, and will not return online until their lives are "bought back" - when $1 million has been raised for Keep a Child Alive. Fans can help buy the stars back by donating to KCA through the Buy Life site, with a StickyBits app that scans Buy Life barcodes, or by texting BUYLIFE to 90999. The campaign is also accompanied by print ads featuring the participating celebrities in coffins to represent their digital deaths.
