Homepage Betty White Challenge: How you can participate and donate to your local animal shelter

What is Betty White Challenge?

Betty White was a friend to countless animals throughout her legendary life, and now that legacy is living on.

A new challenge inspired by the late comedic icon is currently sweeping through social media.

The so-called “Betty White Challenge” is a virtual event that held last Monday, Jan. 17 (which would have been the actress’ 100th birthday). The event asks fans to donate $5 to animal rescues or shelters in her name.

“The Golden Girls” star was a pioneering animal rights activist who adored the furry ones.

She was a devoted animal lover who worked on saving endangered species and fixing conditions at the Los Angeles Zoo.

White passed away on Dec. 31 at the age of 99. Matt Bershadker, president of the nonprofit ASPCA, expressed his sadness over her death.
