Betty White Gets A Big Grey Birthday Present

What do you get for the girl who has everything? How about a baby elephant?

Actress (and now SAG Award winner!) Betty White celebrated her 89th birthday last week, and the crew of her show “Hot In Cleveland” had a unique gift idea: they adopted an injured African elephant in her name. The elephant was adopted from an orphanage in Nairobi, Kenya, and will now be protected for the rest of its life.

It’s the perfect gift for any animal lover, and White certainly fits the bill: she has said herself outright that she prefers animals to people. White also supports a number of animal charities, including “Actors and Others for Animals” (you can see her all over their homepage) and the Morris Animal Foundation, the latter of which she has served since 1971 and is now the honorary president. She’s even an honorary forest ranger!

There’s little doubt that years from now, we will look back on 2010 as the “YoBW”: the Year of Betty White. So happy 89th, Betty! Here’s to many more adopted elephants in the future.
