In Honour of Betty White’s 100th Birthday

17 Jan

As most people know, Betty White was an American actress and comedian who passed away on December 31, 2021. She passed just weeks before her 100th birthday which would be today, January 17, 2022. Betty White was a pioneer of early television with an amazing career spanning over 8 decades. Add to that she was also one of the first women to work both in front of and behind the camera. But what we admired most about Betty was her tireless advocacy for animals and speaking for those that couldn’t speak for themselves. In honour of what would have been Betty White’s 100th birthday, people around the world are participating in the #BettyWhiteChallenge. This is simply donating $5 to an animal charity that is near and dear to them. We couldn’t think of a more fitting way to honour someone who has given so much of herself to animal advocacy.

There are so many organizations locally that are worthy to donate to, we couldn’t possibly list them all. If you are in position to donate $5, we’ve set out some of our favourite animal rescue organizations that we think are worthy of consideration. Every $1 helps.
