Are you up for the Betty White Challenge?

Following her death on December 31, 2021, the world has been in mourning. This is especially true ahead of what would have been Betty's 100th birthday — on January 17, 2022.

There's a movement that has been formed, which calls on all of us to do something kind, to mark that occasion — especially in Betty's passionate area — which was to help animals.

Betty was a huge animal lover. throughout her life. In fact, her love of animals started as a child, according to the Today Show. She volunteered her time and donated to many animal groups throughout her long life such as the American Humane Society, the Greater Los Angeles Zoo Association, and Guide Dogs for the Blind.

So in her memory, we've all been challenged by some of her fans on Twitter to donate $5 to one of your local animal shelters or rescue groups in Betty's name on January 17th.

What a fabulous idea. Can you imagine if everyone donated just $5 to an animal charity? That's amazing. We'd certainly make a difference. Betty would be proud. I love these kinds of feel-good movements.Plus, Betty was like America's collective grandmother, right? So let's make her proud.

But where should you donate? Well, keep reading down below.
