Robin Williams' Daughter Zelda Comes Up With Incredible Way To Mark His Birthday

Robin Williams' Daughter Zelda Comes Up With Incredible Way To Mark His Birthday

Zelda Williams came up with a sweet way to mark her late dad's birthday earlier this week.

Comedy legend Robin Williams would have turned 69 on Tuesday and in honour of the day, Zelda announced on Twitter she would be donating $69.69 (£54.83) to numerous homeless shelters.

Posting on Twitter, she wrote: "Today would've been Dad's 69th birthday, so to honor him (& that glorious number), I will be donating $69.69 to as many local homeless shelters as I can. Join me if you like, but regardless, know I am wishing you all at least one hearty, immature belly laugh on Dad today."

She then followed that tweet with a list of the places she'd donated to. In fact, she donated so much that her bank emailed her about 'suspicious activity' on her card.

She wrote: "Welp, got the 'suspicious activity' email. So gonna have to slow down on 69s and go talk to a robot for a bit. Gonna go back to being off socials for awhile (as I do yearly), but thanks for joining me in honouring Dad (and the number 69) today! ... it was 'nice'."

But even with her own donations temporarily put on hold, it seemed like the good deed struck a chord with fans of the late comic and the thread quickly grew with people sharing the donations they'd made to various good causes.

Providing an update a few hours later, Zelda shared: "Wanted to pop back to say I've gotten a ton of these. Charities are receiving $69.69 all over the world!

"The ripples of good you all spread is helping SO MANY! It's more than just a 'nice' gesture... you've spread kindness like Dad spread laughter, & I am forever grateful."

She continued: "I cannot express to you how deeply this would've touched Dad. He loved the homeless, spent much of his life trying to help them, to uplift them, to have them be treated with dignity instead of disdain.

"Thank you for doing so in his name. Thank you, for keeping his kindness alive."
