Earlier today the organization had only raised $300K in donations and in a matter of hours they reached and exceeded their goal thanks to billionaire and noted philanthropist Stewart Rahr, who generously offered to match this amount.
"From the bottom of my heart, thank you to all of the fans, friends and artists who joined this cause,” said Alicia Keys. “I'm incredibly inspired by all of the donations that have been made to help us achieve our goal and so humbled by the outpour of support from everyone.”
Ryan Seacrest tweeted, "I'M ALIVE! We've raised $1 million to help KCA fight AIDS!"
Justin Timberlake added, "Justin Timberlake is alive! We raised $1mil to help KCA fight AIDS. Thank you so much and never stop buying life!"
Kim Kardashian tweeted, "I am back from the dead! Thank you all so much for your donations and contributions! I have missed u all so much!!!"
