Children’s Author Donates Proceeds To Sandy Hook Families

by Greg on January 11, 2013

Children’s book author, Christine Karol Roberts will be donating 100% of the proceeds from the sale of her books “Hannah the Hummingbird” and “The Jewel Collar” on all Amazon, Barnes & Noble and Apple IBook store purchases till 2/14/13, to the Sandy Hook School Support Fund.

Roberts had this to say:
“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.”

It is the Christmas season and Ari is very sad, missing his garden friends. Ari’s Mommy gives him an early Christmas gift — The Jewel Collar.
