Adam Sandler

by Taylor from Poquoson


My hero is Adam Sandler because he helps people and makes them happy. He helped people in his hometown by donating one million dollars to the Boys and Girls Club. He sent 6.6 million dollars to expand the building and to update the equipment at the Boys and Girls Club. Adam Sandler makes people laugh in his movies. He made a lot of great movies. He is a great actor and a good person to have as a friend.

He was born September 9, 1966 and his hometown is Brooklyn, New York. He started to do comedy when he was seventeen years old. His brother persuaded him to do it one time at a comedy club. After that first time, he kept getting asked to come back and he liked making people laugh. His talent is being a good actor and comedian. He does his job very well and he enjoys making people laugh. He tries to donate to as many organizations that need help as he can. He signed items for the VH1 and eBay auction and took part in the America Tribute to Heroes’ Charity Telethon for victims of 9/11.


There are many ways that he has helped with donations to people that need money for places to live. He donated $1,000,000 to the foundation for Haiti to help the people that were in the earthquake. The earthquake in Haiti killed 230,000 people. Adam Sandler and a lot of other people helped donate money. Adam Sandler is my hero because he helps other people.

He made a lot of movies that are comedies. People watch his movies to laugh and to be happy. Some of his movies are Happy Gillmore, Billy Madison, 50 First Dates, Mr. Deeds, and I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry. Happy Gillmore was my favorite movie. Adam Sandler loves to do comedy.

Adam Sandler is important to me because he makes movies for everyone to watch and they are funny. He makes these movies to make us happy and to laugh. He has made a difference in my life with his movies. I enjoy his movies so much I will watch them even if I have seen them many times. The movies are so funny that my whole family loves to watch them. They make us happy. I learned that Adam Sandler is a good man to look up to. Another thing that I learned is that he donates to a lot of charities.
