I am honored to be selected as the national spokesperson for red-feed-Child.com. Here is a write-up about the organization (from their website):
The “Dreamer” who feeds the children
“Read With A Child, And Help Feed A Child”
Michael John McCann has a life long track record of community service and involvement. An entrepreneur who ran a successful commercial finance and real estate business, he was a member and former chairman of the Westborough Housing Authority. He was instrumental in creating the town’s senior center and an affordable housing development for the elderly. Now residing in Florida, Michael is the author of PURPLE UMPKIN, the first in a series of illustrated children’s books featuring the Murples.
Imagine feeding a child through a book…
This is exactly what my purpose was in writing this book. It is great to see my book in print, but what makes it special is although you will discover “PurpleUmpkin”, and our enjoyable Murple characters, you will be feeding a child. My main focus of this project is to feed underprivileged children in America. This book is allowing me to help these children and through doing so, I may help them to discover the dreams they have and allow them to come true. It is my goal to continue this passion until one day authors engage with me; together
we can have others read a book and feed a child. – Michael John McCann
