BFN FOUNDER – RICHARD NIX, SR. 

Founded by Richard Nix, Sr., Books for Newborns began in late 2016 with one man’s vision to give children born into poverty a chance to succeed.

He knew the power of books and reading could help set the course for success and believed that books were the perfect reminder in a hectic day to slow down and bond with your baby.
