Celebs Are "Dying" To Fight AIDS

Kim Kardashian and her sisters, Lady Gaga, Justin Timberlake, Alicia Keys and other celebrities are all preparing to die -- at least digitally. These super stars have pledged to unplug their Twitter and Facebook accounts on Wednesday, December 1, in honor of World AIDS Day -- and they won't start chattering again on the social media sites until $1,000,000 has been raised for Keep A Child Alive, a foundation set up to help fight the disease in Africa.

"We're trying to sort of make the remark: Why do we care so much about the death of one celebrity as opposed to millions and millions of people dying in the place that we're all from?" says Leigh Blake, co-founder of Keep A Child Alive, which Alicia Keys has championed and helped to raise funds for over the years. "It's about love and respect and human dignity."
