FOX21 — A new challenge has popped up on social media in honor of beloved late actress Betty White and her love for animals. White, who died at the age of 99 just weeks before her 100th birthday, was not only known for her acting career but also for her dedication to animal advocacy.
Now, in honor of her upcoming birthday on Jan. 17, fans across the world plan to donate $5 to animal shelters of their choice. The trend has been dubbed as the “BettyWhiteChallenge.”
According to Bloomberg, White served as a board member of the Greater Los Angeles Zoo Association and trustee of the Morris Animal Foundation since the ’70s.
