Lady Gaga joins social networking campaign for World Aids!

5 Dec

According to gaganews.com, Lady Gaga, Justin Timberlake, Usher and other celebrities have joined a new campaign called Digital Life Sacrifice on behalf of Alicia Keys’ charity, Keep a Child Alive. The entertainers plan to sign off of social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter on Tuesday, which is World AIDS Day. The participants will sign back on when the charity raises $1 million.

“I have a feeling that Gaga is going to raise it all by herself,” Leigh Blake, president and co-founder of Keep A Child Alive said. Lady Gaga has more than 7.2 million followers on Twitter, and nearly 24 million fans on Facebook.

“She’s got a very, very mobilized fan base and that’s beautiful to watch I think (and) she’s able to draw their attention to these issues that are very important, you know, and that people follow it and act.”

    • Turn off Lights, Appliances and Other Items Operated by Electricity When They Aren’t in Use
    • Run Your Dishwasher Only When it is Full
    • Share a ride with a friend
