The Betty White Challenge is back for a second year

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — The Betty White Challenge is back at the Halifax Humane Society.

The #BettyWhiteChallenge was launched nationwide in Jan. 2022 in recognition of her support of animal welfare causes over the years.

White, an eight-time Emmy winner died on New Year’s Eve 2021, just 18 days shy of her 100th birthday.


To honor her legacy, fans created the Betty White Challenge to encourage people to give at least $5 to their favorite animal charity and say, “Thank you for being a friend.”

The challenge continues in 2023 and Halifax Humane Society (HHS) is asking people to donate as little as $5 to honor the actress.

All donations will be used for the care of the shelter animals at HHS.

“Ms. White was an advocate for all animals, but especially shelter animals in need of forever homes. Please honor her love of animals by making a small donation on her birthday January 17th,” said HHS community outreach director, Barry KuKes. “We thank you in advance for your kindness and generosity.”

Donations can be made at www.halifaxhumanesociety.org/donate or at www.facebook.com/halifaxhumanesociety by clicking on the donate button at the top of the page or the button on the Betty White Challenge post.
