Feb. 18, 2013 - PRLog -- (Newport Beach, CA) Christine Karol Roberts, intellectual property lawyer and children's book author, has a passion for justice and a heart for helping others. In fact, from December 14, 2012, until February 14, 2013, the author donated 100 percent of her proceeds to the families of the Sandy Hook Elementary victims.

As she explained, "I have been very fortunate over the years and am so saddened by the loss of the beautiful children in Newtown, Connecticut; I wanted to give back in some small way to their community and sending them 100% of the proceeds of my book sales through February 14, 2013, seemed like a natural. Since law is my primary business endeavor, my children's books were written out of love and the book sale revenue is not really of great import to me. If it can help their community it will mean so much more to me."

Now, starting February 15, she will be donating 20 percent of her sales to another cause close to her heart, Vogel Alcove, an early childhood education program located in her hometown of Dallas, Texas. Cynthia Smoot of Dallas ( recommended this worthwhile charity to Christine. Christine’s love of kids and connection to her community drew her to this worthy program.

About Christine’s books:
“The Jewel Collar” is the story of a Maltese dog, Aristotle, who moves from the family beach house to a new home shortly before Christmas so his Mommy, an attorney, can be closer to the Courthouse and train station. Ari is very sad, missing his garden friends. Ari decides to share the jewels on his Jewel Collar with new friends in the Floral Park garden. The lesson learned is you can make new friends in a new neighborhood without giving a gift and that sharing is the true spirit of friendship and Christmas. Ages 4-8.

“Hannah the Hummingbird” is a children's picture book about Hannah, a member of the Garden Friends Club and her two babies, Hayley and Harry. Hannah builds her nest in Ari's garden, surrounded by the birds, animals and members of the Garden Friends Club. It is a charming story detailing the adventures of Hannah and her baby hummingbirds from hatch to first flight. Ages 4-8.
