Our dear friend Betty White was a compassionate and devoted animal advocate for nearly a century. Through her 70-year support of American Humane, she volunteered her service as a member of American Humane’s board of directors, supported our “No Animals Were Harmed®” program protecting animals in film and television, served as a judge and presenter for the nationally televised American Humane Hero Dog Awards™, and served as the chair of our nationwide “Be Kind to Animals Week®,” the most successful humane education campaign and the oldest commemorative week in U.S. history.
And to cement her legacy for years to come, American Humane is launching a petition to gather 10,000 signatures which they will take to Congress to seek a national Betty White Day of recognition honoring this remarkable woman’s lifelong commitment to animals.
$15,000 MATCHING GIFT CHALLENGE ALERT
To cement Betty’s legacy for years to come, an anonymous donor has stepped forward with a $15,000 matching gift. This means your contribution today will be matched dollar-for-dollar, so a donation of $25 becomes $50, a gift of $100 becomes $200, and a generous gift of $500 becomes $1,000!
