Man Raises Money To Protect Betty White From 2016

2016 has not been a kind year. With many beloved stars passing away this year, many people are very much looking forward to it coming to an end in a few days. However, that being said, many are worried that the year could still throw a couple of punches into fan’s hearts with another surprising celebrity death.

One fan is hoping to do something about this terrible year – or at least he has started a GoFundMe page to help keep one particularly loved celebrity out of the hands of 2016. Demetrios Hrysikos set up an account to help protect Betty White.

“Help 2016 catch these hands if it goes anywhere near Betty White! If she’s okay with it I will fly to where ever Betty White is and keep her safe til Jan. 1, 2017,” he wrote on the page.

If White decides that she doesn’t need his protection – being the badass woman she is – Hrysikos said that he would donate the money he raises to a local youth theater company. He hopes to raise $2,000 to protect the 94-year-old actress.

Of course, given 2016’s track record, many of her fans have been concerned about her well-being this year.

This last year has taken away many great stars from the world. The music world lost legends such as David Bowie, Prince, Leonard Cohen, and George Michael. Television lost Alan Thicke, while sports lost Arnold Palmer. The film industry lost Alan Rickman, Gene Wilder, and, most recently, Carrie Fisher.

All of these beloved celebrities will be dearly missed and forever remembered for their contributions to the world.
