It is with very heavy hearts & sadness that Books for Newborns needs to report that our Fearless Leader & Chairman of our Board, Mike Hogan passed away on the evening of Friday, March 24th. . Words will never express how much Mike meant to our team. We will all miss his friendship, mentorship and drive to make our little charity successful.
Whether it was our daily check ins to insure we were focused on our Books for Newborns “To Do List”, updates on bags delivered (30,000+ to date) or new sponsor he wanted us to be aware of, Mike was an inspiration to us all. We know there are many in the community including our Books for Newborns Board, Volunteers and Donors praying for Mike and his family. Just last week Mike posted this in our BFN offices a real tribute to his life:
“I have one life and one chance to make it count for something. . .
My faith demands that I do whatever I can, wherever I am, whenever I can, for as long as I can with whatever I have to try to make a difference.”
― Jimmy Carter
