Zelda Williams honors Robin Williams on 65th birthday with charity plea
‘Still not really sure what to do on days like today…’
Thursday would have been Robin Williams’s 65th birthday, and to honor her late father, Zelda Williams found a way to carry on his legacy.
In an Instagram post, Williams explained that she wanted fans to make a donation in her father’s name to honor some of his passions, and was excited to have found a charity that combined three of them: “rescue dogs, people suffering from disabilities, and our nation’s wounded veterans.”
It’s called freedomservicedogs.org, a nonprofit that specially trains dogs in need of a home to be custom service animals for children, veterans, and active duty military.
Still not really sure what to do on days like today… I know I can’t give you a present anymore, but I guess that means I’ll just have to keep giving them in your name instead. This year, I tried to help three causes you cared about in one; rescue dogs, people suffering from disabilities, and our nation’s wounded veterans, so I donated to freedomservicedogs.org. They rescue pups from shelters and train them so that they can be paired with someone in dire need of their help and companionship. Thought you’d get a kick out of furry, four legged friends helping change the world, one warrior in need at a time. Happy birthday Poppo. Shasha, Zakky, Codeman and I all love you and miss you like crazy. Xo

The touching post included a link to the charity’s website so fans could follow suit if they felt so inclined.
