In the wake of some major celebrity losses this year (most recently with the passing of iconic pop singer George Michael and Star Wars legend Carrie Fisher), one man has started a GoFundMe page to help protect beloved actress Betty White from 2016.
Demetrios Hrysikos created the page yesterday with the intent of raising enough money to buy a plane ticket to fly to Betty White’s side and keep her safe through what’s left of the year.
“Help 2016 catch these hands if it goes anywhere near Betty White,” he writes. “If she’s okay with it, I will fly to wherever Betty White is and keep her safe til January 1, 2017.”
Acknowledging that White probably wouldn’t take him up on his offer, he added that any money he raised would be donated to South Carolina’s Spartanburg Little Theatre to “help craft new stars…to carry [on the] mantle of the legends that have left us this year.”
Hrysikos isn’t the only one worried about White—several fans have taken to social media to plead with 2016 to spare the Golden Girls star.
