Hilary or Donald? Why Not Both?


Hilary? Donald? Why not enjoy the best of both Hilary Duff and Donny Osmond!




Hilary Duff was born on September  28, 1987.  In addition to her roles in  “Lizzie McGuire”  and “A Cinderella Story”, the Disney Star appeared in “Material Girls”, “Cadet Kelly”, “The Perfect Man”, and “Cheaper By the Dozen.” She released several hit CDs including “Santa Claus Lane”,  “Dignity” and “Breathe In Breathe Out.” She is the author of the books Elixir, Devoted, and True and currently appears on the sitcom “Younger.”


Donald Clark “Donny” Osmond began his recording career with his siblings the Osmond Brothers and later starred with sister Marie on a popular TV variety show.  As atop teen idol of the seventies the Utah based superstar released hit songs like “Go Away, Little Girl”, “Puppy Love” and “One Bad Apple.”    He appeared on Broadway in “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dream Coat” and wrote an autobiography called Life is Just What You Make It!  He also provided the singing voice of in the Disney film “Mulan.”  He would later win one season of “Dancing with the Stars” and stage a popular Las Vegas show with his sister Marie.

We own several items that feature Hilary or Donny so why choose between them? There’s no need to debate their merits.  Just enjoy them both! Now, that’s a way to be stronger together AND make America great!
