SANTA BARBARA, Calif., Feb. 7 (UPI) -- A 105-year-old California woman believed to be Facebook's oldest user said she is trying to get 105,000 likes for a charity's page.

Edythe Kirchmaier, who is also California's oldest licensed driver and the oldest living former student of the University of Chicago, said Direct Relief, a Santa Barbara-based medical charity where she has been a volunteer for 40 years, set up a Facebook page for her in honor of her birthday last month, ABC News reported Thursday.

"I've been contacted by such wonderful people and received such nice messages and pictures from people all over the world," Kirchmaier said. "I'm so humbled by all the interest in me."

Kirchmaier said she is hoping her new Facebook friends will help popularize Direct Relief's fan page.

"I'm hoping to get 105,000 likes for the page," she said.
