Dear Friends,

Animals are near and dear to my heart, and I've devoted my life to trying to improve their lives. Since a girl like me already has more than I could hope for, I'm asking fellow animal lovers for a special birthday gift this year. To help celebrate my 91st birthday on January 17, pleas help me raise $10,000 or Morris Animal Foundation.

I've worked with Morris Animal Foundation for more than 40 years now, and I'm so proud of all they've done to advance veterinary medicine for animals worldwide. This year, the Foundation will celebrate its 65th anniversary (still quite a youngster if you ask me!). Since its founding, Morris Animal Foundation has invested more than $70 million toward more than 2,000 health studies for dogs, cats, horses and hundreds of wildlife species, including my favorite: the California sea otter!

These studies have led to significant breakthroughs in diagnostics, treatments, preventions and cures for animals. Some of the breakthroughs funded through the Foundation have even become gold standards in veterinary care.

If you love animals like I do, pleas make a gift to Morris Animal Foundation today, and then ask five of your friends to support science that will make the world a brighter place for animals. If you can't give now, please considering sharing this page with your animal-loving friends. It would make a golden girl like me very happy!

Yours truly,

Betty White

Morris Animal Foundation

President Emeriti & Trustee

ik the "peasants among royalty" comments have been done to death, but they got Blake Shelton to sing at her birthday?

Some blatant disrespect right here.

I like Betty, but she was my least favorite on TGG.
mirandagirll 17th-Jan-2013 07:39 pm (UTC)
Aw, happy birthday to her.
rimbaudacious 17th-Jan-2013 07:45 pm (UTC)
Rue was the best imo, Blanche's serious episodes always broke me.
insertcandyhere 17th-Jan-2013 07:48 pm (UTC)
6:49 was my favorite ever Blanche moment
rimbaudacious 17th-Jan-2013 08:15 pm (UTC)
Sexually liberated and independent queen <3

I was so proud of her.
redaodai 17th-Jan-2013 07:49 pm (UTC)
One of the only good Golden Palace episodes was where we learned about Blanche's brother. It was heartbreaking.

Oh, and so was the one about Miles cheating on Rose. :(
rimbaudacious 17th-Jan-2013 08:12 pm (UTC)
omg Golden Palace was such a letdown, they should've just quit while they were ahead.

Fuck Miles from the very beginning tbh Rose was always too good for him.
distant_lines 17th-Jan-2013 07:49 pm (UTC)
Didn't they all have some issues with Betty?
muffintiem 17th-Jan-2013 08:09 pm (UTC)
Even still, if you watch some of her bits when she'd do her St. Olaf stories, they were legit laughing. There's one she tells about a herring circus (S1 E25 just FYI) and during the entire scene, you can tell that Bea & Rue are legit trying to not laugh and break the scene, which makes it even better.

I don't know how Betty pulled off some of those stories without laughing.

I liked all the girls equally, but Sophia holds a special place in my heart. Just because I want to be a rude ass old lady like that some day.
rimbaudacious 17th-Jan-2013 08:16 pm (UTC)
lmaooooo the herring being shot out of the cannon! Funny enough on its own but when they're all pretty much crying with laughter... omg
theratwhispers 17th-Jan-2013 07:43 pm (UTC)
Happy Birthday to her, not many people get to the age of 91!
mynamehere07 17th-Jan-2013 07:48 pm (UTC)
I love Betty! GG never fails to make me laugh.
rctshack 18th-Jan-2013 12:05 am (UTC)
Same. If I ever get to the point where someone has to take care of me everyday... it will depress me more than death. I would rather just pass then.
deathbytamarind 17th-Jan-2013 08:22 pm (UTC)
I fucking love this woman.
honeebs 17th-Jan-2013 08:27 pm (UTC)
WOW wishing her well.
ilouboutin 17th-Jan-2013 08:27 pm (UTC)

rctshack 18th-Jan-2013 12:06 am (UTC)

I love that it's the 2nd annual 90th birthday. Great way to make it an ongoing yearly thing.

I always find it weird how network tv just hypes like they have the past 5 years again on some heavy revival shit.
