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.
