“I simply wish to thanks all to your love and help through the years. Thanks a lot and stick round,” White stated within the clip recorded on Dec. 20 that her staff shared on Instagram on Friday.
The “Golden Ladies” actor died at age 99 on Dec. 31. She had a stroke on Christmas Day. White would have turned 100 on Jan. 17.
Within the caption of the video, White’s staff thanked these followers who’d remembered the late TV legend with donations to animal shelters and rescues as a part of the #BettyWhiteChallenge that went viral following her demise.
“She might by no means have imagined such an outpouring of affection and would have been so grateful to everybody,” they wrote.
“She was utilizing the event of her one hundredth birthday to have a good time YOU — her followers,” they added. “She knew how fortunate she was; she felt the love, and she or he by no means took it as a right. I believe it’s applicable to submit at present as a thank [you] from Betty and the animals.”
