*BOSSIP Exclusive* Mystery Donor Brings A. Keys And ‘Em “Back To Life”

- By Bossip Staff Categories: Attention Slores, Bossip Exclusives, Congratulations

Alicia Keys Digital Death Buy Life Keep A Child Alive

Yesterday morning, right after Usher broke his promise not to tweet, this “Digital Death” charity stunt had barely raised a third of the million dollars it would take to bring stars like Alicia Keys, Swizz Beatz, Serena Williams, Lady Gaga and Kim Kardashian back to life.

A source within the project tells BOSSIP exclusively that Keep A Child Alive received a single “mystery donation” of $500,000 towards the “Digital Death” campaign, bringing everyone back to a social network near you.

We call shenanigans: this morning, they were at a grand total of $420,000. And this afternoon, Alicia Keys’ Keep A Child Alive partner Leigh Blake was “crying for Africans” on Twitter and blaming “all the sh*tty people who don’t care” for their fundraising fail.

But now, all of a sudden, you’ve raised $125 more than the million you needed???

We’re glad they finally did the sensible thing and put the money in the pot themselves.

    That “mystery” donor was probably one of those digitally dead celebs….Good probability Ryan Seacrest is behind this..Anyways,good for them either way.

      Kalifa, she didn’t have to try to redeem herself from being a hoe because she never was one. Just because some people didn’t understand the campaig doesn’t mean it was bad. She was trying to engage everyone to do something. Lots of people feel better when they give. If they can give that is. Also she said celebrities were getting too much attention and it was being taken away from what was really important. People suffering. This was an attempt to inform people and give them a chance to do something good for others and make it more important than celebrities and their drama. Much respect for Ms Keys. She is an inspiration.

    • Oh_Please

      I was thinking the exact same thing! “Mystery donor” my azz

    • kalifa

      the campaign was $hit to begin with. $hitty idea, $hitty celebs, and nobody cared.

      pathetic attempt by alicia keys to redeem herself for being a hoe.

      i wonder if she would have laid in that coffin if she was still preggers. those aids toting africans would have had to kiss her fat preggers a$$

    • pineapple

      they should have just quietly donated the money as a team in the first place. the display was clearly superfluous and self-aggrandizing.

      “see? i’m saving kids in africa. what’s mashonda doing for the kids in africa?”

    • BamBam*

      It was STEWART RAHR…….google him!

  • mz.Drizzy

    bullsh*t a rich celeb donated lol

  • StarLite

    You know it was! LoL

  • http://bossip who

    Thats a damn shame she/they put their own money up just to tweet. Tweeting is not that fugin serious you paid hundreds of thousands just to tweet gtfoh. Soon as they came back to life, not AK because I don’t follow her anyway but the rest, soon as I saw them on my time line BLOCK, now you dead again !

    • kimbria

      lol exactly

  • G-La

    Well, call me sh*tty all you want…I need ppl to donate to my fund. “Keep a girl in school and pay her bills fund.”
    Celebs are lame anyway. I hope the children who really need this money, actually see the money.

  • Sha

    They probably got in Usher’s A$$ and made him pay up. You know Alicia was P.O.’d lol :P

    • jordana216

      Hahaha! That’s exactly what i was thinking. Usher proabably got called out on breaking his vow and was forced to pay, or was guilt tripped into it…why couldn’t they just donate the dam.n money in the first place? All they did was waste time…

  • Sanriobaby =^.^=

    Hmmm… A mystery donor shows up in just the Nick of time to save this Twits who Tweet- I mean to exceede the total goal is SUCH A LIFESAVER! Sorry to be so snarky but really? Why couldn’t these stars come out and say they chipped in to make sure the goal was reached? In fact, I’d have more respect for them if someone came clean. But what they should have did in the first place was pledge to match DONATIONS UP TO A MILLION DOLLARS so that supporters knew that these stars are really about walkin the walk. And the donations should have started at $5 instead of $10. More people would have been able to give that small amount. Either way, this drama is over and let’s hope that this money really does go to those who need it the most.

  • SweetChocl8

    I thought maybe Oprah? But I’m sure it was someone we all know!! They didn’t want to feel like failures so they brought their selves back to life!

  • Lisa

    Wow you people are truly sad and desperate your lives must really be miserable to just make up whatever stories make you feel good about yourselves. Good luck with that mentallity, that is exactly why your lives will remain miserable, because you are too busy wishing for the failure of others. Alicia and hers will continue to be blessed because she is coming from the heart with helping those that are in need. I feel sorry for you all.

    • anita

      Finally, someone said it right. Makes no difference who put the money up or the reason why. The main goal was to help with the epidemic in Africa. I’m glad they reached their goal and hopefully many will get the aid they need. People can say what they want about Alicia but I think she truly cares about helping others and personally I don’t believe anything until it’s proven. She is a good person and doesn’t deserve all this hate. Let it be on your shoulders the things you’ve thought and said.

  • suthnpeach

    LMAO @ this story! U know they couldn’t go too long with tweeting or updating their fb page. One of them where like f*ck this sh*t! Say gon and front them the rest of that!

  • Truth

    How dare he go online and cuss ppl out for not donating idk what world they live in but the USA I live in is poor. There was no way in there world that there followers was gonna reach a million dollars people are broke okay for the 1000th time. Nobodys gona donate if they can’t afford to live. Period! You can call that selfish or miserable all you want but it’s reality & life. Because that person didn’t donate doesn’t mean there miserable so stfu with that crap. Who knows where this money is going with all the celebritys who playing mind games to there fans. Doesn’t because she has money doesn’t me she more bless then the next person who works a 9-5 so stfu.

    • anita

      No one shold feel guilty if they can’t give. But if you can and you just keep making excuses not to, then you are the problem. Not the people who can’t. Truth, not saying you can. Peace

  • Allie

    “Please continue to BUY LIFE-the one thing that none of us can alive without”

    Did anyone else besides me catch that little error? And you want people to donate to this cause and you can’t even spell a word correctly? pitiful

  • sportstalk23

    This whole premise was a dumb azz idea based totally on celeb narcissist, people had to donate to an actual good cause or they were gonna deprive the world of their useless social networking posts especially that lame azz twitter. That should be a clue to them that the reason why they stayed digitally dead until now was because maybe just maybe folks got sick of the forever and day facebook and twitter posts they give all day long. If they wanted to raise money in these tough economic times then why not have all their followers donate 1 dollar,and then they all could have matched it. I work but a lot of my paycheck is reserved for paying back damn student loans,so only way I can contribute is with not so much money but time. That’s were the celebs lost points was tying the realness of the cause with their egos and sticking themselves in coffins. As if then being dead on twitter equates to those dying from this disease. Sorry yall not posting isn’t a tragedy lol. I heard that the person who gave the money is a relative of the Forbes family

  • Lisa

    @Truth you are one stupid idiot. Honey the blessing is not about the money. You people are so clueless. Its to far over your head to get it. SMDH

  • Mock Rock Star

    Their lying…nobody donated any significant amount of money
