Today is Hilary Duff's birthday

Known for both her singing and acting, did you know that Hilary Duff also works with charities? She is involved with Blessings in a Backpack, a group that provides backpacks (with food inside) for students to eat over the weekend. Since many students across the country participate in local school lunch programs, they do get lunch during the school week, however they may not have enough food at home to eat over the weekend. Students take the filled backpacks home and then return the empty backpacks on Monday to be filled again for the following weekend.

Another one of her favorite charities is Kids With a Cause. This group encourages children to help children. It teaches the principles and practices of philanthropy to children and teens in the entertainment industry.

She also works with charities that help animals. She and her sister, Haylie, like to encourage people to adopt pets at local animal shelters.

Interested in learning more about Hilary Duff? Available in both library and paperback versions, this biography is great for grades 6 and up.

Happy Birthday Adam Sandler

Adam Sandler is one of the biggest comedy film stars in the world today. He starred in many box-office smashes, from The Waterboy, to The Wedding Singer, to Funny People. What many do not know, however, is how much time and money Sandler has generously devoted to charitable causes, including charities that help fight autism, research treatments for spinal cord injuries, and give aid to those suffering in the war-torn region of Darfur in Africa.

This title is available in both library-bound and paperback versions.
