Cherryland Humane Society Takes Part in the Betty White Challenge

Following the passing of Betty White, a new social media challenge started on what would have been her 100th birthday.

The beloved actress is being honored through donations to animal shelters across the nation.

Known as the Betty White Challenge, fans on social media are asking people to donate to their local animal shelters.

White was a longtime animal welfare activist and American Humane board member.

Cherryland Humane Society in Traverse City is still collecting donations through their website or Facebook page.

“We have such an amazing community and we weren’t really sure what exactly was going to happen and how it was going to go over, but we were so overwhelmed with donations,” said Communications and Marketing Manager Naomi Washburn.

With over 600 donors, Cherryland Humane Society has collected $17,200 and counting.Screen Shot 2022 01 19 At 52111 Pm
