‘Betty White Day’

On New Year’s Eve, the last day of 2021, America lost a television and comedy icon: Betty White.
She was a pioneer of early television, and was noted for her tremendous work in the entertainment industry.
Ms. White was also noted for her love of animals. Taking care of them was her life’s mission.
Ms. White would have turned 100 on January 17, 2022. Social media is calling for Betty White Day on that date, and suggests that everyone donate to their local Animal Shelter.
We, at the Shopper News Note, think that’s a great idea. Rest In Peace, Ms. White, and thanks for the memories!
