It really doesn't matter how we fell in love with Betty because she made it so easy to do. There was always something special coming when you'd see her on the screen.

Since her passing on New Year's Eve 2021, fans and friends have been sharing a multitude of stories about her. One thing is always present in every one of the stories you hear about Betty White,

Betty White was incredibly kind to all living things.

That kindness is the inspiration for the 'challenge' being issued to us all as a way to honor her.
