According to Meta, more than 390,000 people have donated to fundraisers on Facebook and Instagram for the #BettyWhiteChallenge, raising $12.7 million for animal shelters across the world.

On Friday, Betty White's team posted a pre-recorded video on her social media accounts, where the late star thanked her fans for all the love and support over the years.

"Good morning! As we continue to see number coming in from all over the world — it's just absolutely amazing how much money all of you raised for the animals through #thebettywhitechallenge´╗┐," her team wrote in the video post.

"She could never have imagined such an outpouring of love and would have be so grateful to everyone. When we recorded her special message to fans who attended the movie, we also recorded one that we had planned to put on social media on her birthday. She was using the occasion of her 100th birthday to celebrate YOU - her fans. She knew how lucky she was; she felt the love, and she never took it for granted. I think it's appropriate to post today as a thank from Betty and the animals."
