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, 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,” she wrote. “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.”

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