As far as we know, Betty White is alive, well, and ready to celebrate her 95th birthday on January 17, 2017. (Pause to pray that this remains true.) But a freaked-out Internet has convinced itself that she is in danger of being 2016's final celebrity victim.
"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 till Jan 1 , 2017. Now , assuming she doesn't want a strange Greek standing [guard] outside her door all monies will be donated to the Spartanburg little theater to help craft new stars of stage and screen to carry mantle of the legends that have left is this year."
So far, $35 has been raised of the $2,000 goal. But the goal is really to make people aware that Betty White is still with us, but we're not sure for how long, so she must be protected at all costs.
"Betty White" started trending on Twitter, earning more than 45,000 tweets, mostly from fans reacting in fear to the fact that "Betty White" was trending. (Twitter is such a strange place.)

Y'all, we gotta find Betty White and put her in a secure storage facility with 24/7 maximum protection security. 2016 will NOT take her too. pic.twitter.com/h45tHsL44d

2016 TOOK EVERYBODY. WE GOT TO PROTECT TINA TURNER, MORGAN FREEMAN, BETTY WHITE, CICELY TYSON, AND JAMES EARL JONES AT ALL COSTS.
