Betty White joins children's sleep campaign

It looks like the world's most famous octogenarian is once again putting a smile the face of others. This time, she's doing it without a hosting gig on Saturday Night Live.

According to, Betty White has joined and the Carpenter Company to promote awareness of using bedtime stories to help children sleep better at night.

"Great sleep habits and routines are taught right from the crib and then ruined over the next seventy years by late-night television," she joked with Entertainment Tonight.

White's career has been skyrocketing lately.

Betty White joins children's sleep campaign Although she played Rose Nylund on the hit show The Golden Girls during the 80s and 90s, the active living senior recently appeared alongside Sandra Bullock in the hit movie The Proposal and is set to star in the TV Land sitcom Hot in Cleveland.

No matter how successful she has been, White has always lent her efforts to a good cause. In fact, the senior has campaigned for animal rights since the early 70s.

Still, it looks like the icon is currently finding comfort in helping the little ones out there get a good night's rest.

"A good bedtime story goes a long way to making that possible," she told the news outlet.
