A man from South Carolina has promised to keep 94-year-old Betty White clear of harm before the end of 2016 – if she’ll let him! Spartanburg’s Demetrios Hrysikos set up a GoFundMe page on December 27th in request of donations towards his personal effort to keep the former “Golden Girls” actress safe until the New Year. With 2016 seeing the loss of many a music and screen icon, Hrysikos took it upon himself to make this hilarious yet heartfelt gesture.

Hrysikos’ GoFundMe campaign page description states, “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.”

Hrysikos’ original GoFundMe account goal was $2,000, however, with his intentions going viral, Hrysikos has recently updated that amount to $10,000 and the fund is presently (at the time of publishing) at $6,899 in donations. Clearly, people recognize his intent, albeit with a comedic approach, and perhaps that’s a bit of something we all need at this point in 2016.
