It’s called the “Betty White Challenge” and it calls for donations to be made Jan. 17. That would have been White’s 100th birthday.

The beloved actress was well-known for her love of animals.

She worked with zoos, advocated for animals and had many pets of her own.

White died on Dec. 31 at 99 years old.

This small gesture would make a world of difference for the animals and would honor a great lady who was dedicated to animal welfare. #animalshelter #animalshelters #bettywhitebirthday #BettyWhiteChallenge
