Shaquille O’Neal and Betty White Team Up to End Child Abuse


You couldn’t find two more opposite people to team up to fight child abuse in America.

Standing at 7-feet tall and 320-pounds during his playing days, Shaquille O’Neal is known as one of the most dominating players of his era. The four-time NBA Champion (three with the Los Angeles Lakers and one with the Miami Heat) played 19 seasons in the NBA and was named to 15 All-Star teams, eight All-NBA First Teams, won two scoring titles and was elected into the NBA Hall of Fame in 2016.

What you might not know about the Childhelp Celebrity Ambassador is how he has an MBA from the University of Phoenix and a doctorate education from Barry University. Furthermore, to show his dedication to a better society, he was named an honorary US Deputy Marshall and served on a task force which tracks down predators online. He is also a reserve officer with the Miami Beach police department.

Betty White, on the flip side,  is 5-foot-4 and at the age of 94, probably doesn’t weight more than 100 pounds – complete polar opposites of Shaq. White became a household name on television hits such as The Mary Tyler Moore Show and The Golden Girls where she won Emmy Awards for both. Throughout her 75 years on TV, the Illinois native has won seven Emmy’s, three American Comedy Awards, three Screen Actor Guilds, and a Grammy. She also holds a Guinness World Record for longest television career for an actress.

On most nights, O’Neal and White wouldn’t share the same court, but to fight child abuse, the two united together to fight an epidemic which kills nearly five children per day in the United States.
