Betty White Fan Starts GoFundMe To Save Her From 2016

"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."

In terms of celebrity deaths, 2016 has been an atrocious year. From David Bowie to Prince to George Michael and Carrie Fisher, the world has lost an immense amount of talent. 

This heartbreaking state of affairs is why GoFundMe campaigner Demetrios Hrysikos of Spartanburg, South Carolina, is taking drastic measures to keep beloved actress and comedian Betty White around, TIME reports.

"Help 2016 catch these hands if it goes anywhere near Betty White!" Hrysikos writes in the description of the GoFundMe. "If she's okay with it I will fly to where ever Betty White is and keep her safe till Jan 1, 2017."

The internet certainly believes in this noble cause, as the campaign has raised more than $4,000 (the goal was originally set at $2,000) and counting.

And if you think White might not be keen on the idea of a stranger guarding her every move until New Year's, well, Hrysikos has already thought of this.

"Now , assuming she doesn't want a strange Greek standing gaurd [sic] 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 writes.

It's a very real possibility she'd turn down Hrysikos's offer — sweet as it may be — but regardless, we're all thinking about her, and that's what matters.
