Robin Williams’ daughter donates money to charity in honour of the actor’s 69th birthday

Zelda Williams has paid tribute to her father Robin Williams, by marking what would have been his 69th birthday with a charitable donation.

The actress encouraged fans of the late actor to follow in her footsteps by donating money in his honour to homeless shelters.

Taking to 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.”

The 30-year-old continued to share the different charities that she donated to, along with the hashtag #HappyBirthdayPoppo.

Robin Williams died in 2014 at the age of 63, after tragically taking his own life following a battle with the debilitating brain disease Lewy body dementia.

Ahead of Robin’s birthday in 2018, his only daughter took to social media to speak about the difficulty of marking the special occasion.

“It’s that time of year again. Everyone who has dealt with loss knows the pain of certain anniversaries, moments full of memory that come round like clockwork and usurp all others, no matter how hard you may try to prepare for or avoid them.”

“These weeks are the hardest for me, and thus, you’ll see me a lot less, if at all. For all the internet’s good intentions in expressing to me their fondness for dad, it’s very overwhelming to have strangers need me to know how much they cared for him right now. It’s harder still to be expected to reach back.”

“If you’d like to do something in his honour, volunteer at your local homeless shelter, or look up how to make homeless aid backpacks. Give one in his name”, she wrote, “He’d have loved that.”

Robin is survived by his wife Susan Schneider, and his three children Zelda, Zachary and Cody.
